3 days a week set schedule. Looking to add one more day into my schedule if I can get out of bed.
At your age, you should be able to workout 4-5 days a week and eat more what you want, at least I could at your age. just make it a habit and after a couple of months you will feel weird if you don't go to the gym and you will start going to gym even when you feel bad. Do 20-30 mins cardio, 30 mins weights . Sorry I know you didn't ask for my advice :)

I've got to change something up.. I work out 5 days a week and I'm not getting the same results as I used to when I was younger
Not sure how advanced you are with weight lifting and this goes for everyone viewing, but the PPL (Push Pull Legs) routine is fairly easy to follow and with so many workouts you can add/take away to allow your muscles to not get comfortable. I just started but I'm already seeing results which is awesome because I've worked out in the past and it took forever to see growth. Once I get a decent build I'll probably tinker with macros but this is enough to just get muscle gains. Of course adding daily protein is a must.

I do a 5 day split.
Monday- back and biceps
Tuesday- chest - triceps
Wednesday- abs and cardio
Thursday- back and biceps
Friday - chest and triceps
Sat and Sunday rest.
Week 1,3,5- all free weights
Week 2,4,6- machines
* plenty of water, protein and rest. Also supplements are key if your looking for real muscle growth. That testosterone would do the trick.

Weeks 7-10 it’s off cycle and I hit it harder. The key is max out to failure on all sets. I train with a Amateur bodybuilder. He looks like the hulk. So I listen.

Very good info. Thanks for sharing.
