Hi guys I'm going to uni this year and at my final year of sixform I've lost about 2 stone in weight (I was quite fat) and now want to build muscle/bulk at uni and was wondering how I make a workout routine? I am a complete novice when it comes to the gym (never actually been in one)

Thanks for any help you can give

Do 5x5 stronglifts, it even has an app. It's basically just focuses on doing 5 sets of 5 reps at the heaviest weight you can do of compound lifts i.e. Bench, squat, dl (1x5) and so on
Also youtube videos on proper form. Also eat right and eat a lot

Just hop on a programme that focuses on heavy compounds lifts and has been proven to work for 99.9% of people that are consistent with it.

Examples (Easily found through google, I'd link 'em but aint nobody got time fo' dat):

Ice Cream Fitness 5x5 (most people on this forum, including myself, love this programme).

Strong lifts 5x5 (or variants)

Starting Strength (or variants)

Ice Cream Fitness is better if looks is your overall goal but takes more time. SS and SL are more strength focused but will still add muscle to you the same, just a bit less attention to detail. SS involves power cleans which are good but difficult for a noob to teach themselves sometimes so better if you have someone who can help you out (most PTs can't teach a clean for ****).

Everyone recommends 5x5, personally I think it's load of rubbish. Must do deadlifts, bull****.
