I only hit the gym a couple times a month but want to get jacked. My old man knows alot about fitness and is hella jacked and gave me this routine today.

Some might argue that i need to be doing less reps/heavier sets but honestly im weak af right now and I think this will help me build strength before I can adjust to to something better.

Currently 25 years old 5 11 and 175 lb skinny fat. Looking to start this routine tomorrow.

Why sitting down in the overhead press? Stand up like a man.

>also no deadlifts

Also also, a higher number of reps with lighter weights will yield better results IMO. I never push myself to the point of failure. 30 minutes a day and a decent diet nothing wrong with a greasy bar burger every so often has kept me at ~135lbs +/- and I'm 5'9".

you want mostly compound exercises OP, and you will want to increase weight every exercise until you plateau and will then need an intermediate program

keep volume low and weight at about 85-90% of your One Rep Max

day 1:
squat 3x5
deathlift 5x1
bench 3x5
row 3x5

day 2:
squat 3x5
deadlift 5x1
powerclean and press 3x5
chinup as many as possible until failure or lat pulldown 3x5 if that's not an option

day 3:
squat 3x5
deadlift 5x1
overhead press 3x5
laying tricep extension 3x5

do flys or curls but only after the compound movements

general tips:
>if you push something, you should also pull with the same group 50/50
>your beginning program is going to increase your neuromotor recruitment, which is baseline 10-15%, and increase the number of motor neurons your brain recruits to do a motion, this is why it is important to TAKE NOTES and increase weight
>focus on good form, look at video tutorials
>work on the foundation first: for a human that is hamstrings and posterior chain; if you don't build the foundation, building the shoulders and arms becomes risky
>if you have trouble getting the bar out of the rack for Overhead Press, just remember to palm strike that fucking jolly african-american like you were Vegeta taking the punch test right before Buu saga
>if you get tendonitis remember to get enough vitamin C and maybe even slide rest days to get yourself more time to recuperate

no bump best of luck
