Hi Taz - Thanks for putting this up, I am on a beggibners program at the moment as im not used to weights training so I am doing a 2 day split until I build my strength up. Garthy says he will upgrade the program after 8-10 weeks.

How long have you bin training? Is that you in the avatar? you look like the hulk lol!

Hi Rick,

I've been training now for nearly ten years. Five years consistantly with weights though. A 2 day split is an excellent choice for a beginner. If you do too much at this stage you will be sore for days and may risk injury.

Yes, thats me in the pic, it was taken 3 years ago when I was 15st 10lbs - I'm now just under 18st (I'll change my avatar to a newer picture shortly).

Heres what I did for my BACK and BICEPS workout yesterday:

Bodyweight Chins (17st 12lbs) 3 Sets 10, 8, 6 reps

Cable Rows 3 sets - 56kg x 12, 70kg x 10, 70kg x 8

Lat Pulldown 3 sets - 70kg x 10, 84kg x 8, 77kg x 8

Barbel Curl 3 sets 20kg x 12, 40kg x 8, 40kg x 6

DB Hammer Curls 2 sets 17.5kg x 8, 15kg x 8
