In my spare time, I am trying to get certified for PFT, so I started a WIP website: http://breaktobuild.com Under motivation there are a ton a pictures that I scan all the time, also on the blog there are some videos and such. Check it out if want

Greg Plitt has some awesome videos, jordan and nike commercials are always good...ummmm.

Exactly, alot of workouts out there that are based solely on the squat, dead lift, and bench. The Big 3, all major muscles, and using the entire body. And as he said, pair that with 3000+ calories, good supps (protein, bcaas, aminos, glutamine) and you are golden.

Good to hear because Im trying to make a routine of strictly compound exercises.

Also, I just wanna prove to my bro that a short compound workout routine is better than spending hours working out. He thinks you need to workout for a long period of time in each session to get results and, laughs at me when I only spend 25 minutes and expect to make gains.

I keep trying to explain to him that doing compound is better but that fcuker is too stuck on his own routine to listen.

well 25 minutes is pretty short, technically you can make gains but ideally you should be spending about 45 minutes, anything less is honestly too short of time, and anything more than an hour is honestly too long

It's hard to say what's better but what I can tell you is if you're really pushing yourself with a compound program there is no way you'll get out in 25 minutes. Look into starting strength, strong lifts, or madcows5x5.

If you eat right and get plenty of rest, yes.

What's the best workout? It's a workout that you'll continue to do for the rest of your lives, whether it be gardening, cycling, weight lifting, etc. Changes are made and visible in the long-run, not in a few days or weeks. So find something that you can stick to and that you enjoy doing. -Jae

You're comparing apples and oranges. Time versus workout philosophy. Even if you do make "gains" on your 25-minute big-3 routine, it does nothing to disprove the quality of a bodybuilding split. As someone who does a bodybuilding split and is against big-3 routines, I would still say he's wasting his time if he's spending >1hr in the gym.

By the way, I've made this point a few times and have yet to see any real counterpoint: if you are lifting for looks, a big-3 routine is about as bad as it gets.

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

Agree with this post 100%. Can you make gains in 25 minutes? Sure. What kind of gains though?

You can add a little bulk and make some noob strength gains, but a true long term strength program will take a lot more than 25 minutes 3 or 4 times a week. A true aesthetic program will take a lot longer than that as well.

If time is really the issue you can probably get more bang for your buck with a pure strength routine, but it doesn't necessarily mean you'll look any better.

What is your goal out of working out?

Eric Thomas's speech is great. But this one does it for me.

My church is a gym, services conducted by Lee Priest, Arnold is god, J.C. Stands for Jay Cutler and Ronnie is Moses! I use the preacher bench for confessionals and the squat rack to pay my pennance! Praise be unto Gold's!

"I believe that when the body is strong, the mind thinks strong thoughts.*
Time spent away from the Iron makes my mind degenerate.*
I wallow in a thick depression. My body shuts down my mind.
The Iron is the best antidepressant I have ever found.*
There is no better way to fight weakness than with strength.*
Once the mind and body have been awakened to their true potential, it's*
impossible to turn back.
The Iron never lies to you. You can walk outside and listen to all kinds of talk, get*
told that you're a god or a total bastard.*
The Iron will always kick you the real deal.*
The Iron is the great reference point, the all-knowing perspective giver.*
Always there like a beacon in the pitch black.*
I have found the Iron to be my greatest friend.*
It never freaks out on me, never runs.*
Friends may come and go.*
But two hundred pounds is always two hundred pounds."

Henry Rollins

No man has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. It is a shame for a man to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable.
-- Socrates 400 BC

I think you and glight have an extreme definition of looks. Looks isn't necessarily competing.

Looks can be a low fat, strong body. To me, that "looks" good. I don't need a bulging chest or for my arms to stretch my tshirts. Is a compound still good for this goal?
