Heavy work out program

I'm 18 years old, 5"11, 158 lbs 8 ounces. I've been working out for a year and a half on a regular basis. I am in pretty good shape, actually very good shape I guess. I have decent sized muscles and I am fairly toned.

Currently I go to the gym probably 4 times a week. I switch between doing arms and upper body and abs and lower body and abs. My work out on an upper body day consists of 3 sets of 10 on the bench at 125 lbs (I don't know how much maximum I can bench, but probably around 145-155), 3 sets of 10 on each arm of curls at 25 lbs, 3 sets of 10 of tricep pull-down things at 110lbs, 3 sets of 12 shoulder shrug things with 55 lb weights, and a whole ab routine.

Leg day consists of a lot of squats and stuff for my calves. I am doing ok in the leg department I think.



The other day I saw some college football players practicing at a football field around here. All those feelings I felt about being big and tough quickly vanished. These guys were huge. Gigantic.

What would be the best way to pump up the size in a medium to high paced fashion? I have changed a bit since I started working out, but at this pace it would really take me forever to get to the size I want. How do those guys get from my size in high school to huge football players over the course of a year? There has to be something I'm doing wrong. Should I go for less reps of higher wieght? Or more of the same? Are there any other things I might want to do to help me really bulk up?

If anyone can lend any pointers or show me someplace where I can find the key to becoming massive, please, give this kid a hand! I can work hard, I have lots of frustrations that I like to burn off at the gym.

more food, more sets, and reading www.bodybuilding.com will help.

Either good genetics plus hard training and nutrition, or steroids plus hard training and nutrition. Or a combination. There will be a lot of steroids; competition for college football, athletic scholarships, and a possible shot at the pros is huge.

For the average person, it's an amazing feat to put on 15-20 pounds of muscle in the gym in a year. Training hard and eating right will put the muscle on you, up to your natural limits, but it will not make you huge in a year. And frankly, if you're 5' 11, lean, and pack on an extra 20 or 30 pounds of solid muscle over the next two or three years, you'll have a body that 98 percent of other guys will envy, and a whole lot of women, too.

Some of the most muscular-looking guys I've known are at 200 pounds or only slightly below. They _look_ huge, even though they aren't, because their musculature is hard, dense, and well-defined, and they've worked a lot on their upper body.

Yeah, dude, you just have a different body type than them and there's probably nothing you can do aside from steroids that will get you to their size. Just something you have to live with.

And don't go doing tons and tons of sets and exercises to try and look like that because all you will do is overtrain and it will have a negative effect on what you've built up already.
