I started working out again but this time I will actually get bulked up. What's your routine and what supplements/diet do you use?

used to... all the time.

Makes you feel good. (though Running does too.... more "elated" than the "engaged" feel that lifting gives you)

don't stop... it's REALLY hard to start back up.

and I'd go through each area with just a few sets, short amount of reps, with as much weight as I could bear every other day.

Everyone always says to switch it up... but I always thought that doing everything worked out fine.

Diet-wise, I don't take many supplements. I'm vegetarian and try to have mostly organic food.

When I was 17 (4 years ago) I worked out with a Bowflex for a whole year, but then I quit because I wasn't seeing much progress and I got lazy.

This time I'm just using free weights in my bedroom and actually see results already. I read online that free weights beat the machines anyways, which seems to be right.

I worked out from 7th grade to senior yr HS

my Junior year old self would wipe the floor with me... lol

it does help a lot to have people to work out with though... competition makes you do better.

Check this link out http://getserious.info... It has a bunch of info that may be of use, especially under the Exercise and Nutrition sections.

As for specific routines, it's been a while since I hit the gym so I can't really help you there. Usually I'd split up the workouts so that each time you're trying to focus on a specific part of your body. So one day would be the bench, flys, chin-ups, another day would be squats, and leg presses, then another day would be curls, shoulder press, more chin-ups and maybe throw in some deadlifts just for the hell of it.

Lol everybody did creatine when I was in highschool. All it does is bloat your muscles with water, and as soon as you stop working out, you start to sag. Not to mention, that once you start taking so much of it, your body stops producing its own which isn't going to be so good for you down the road.

No suppliments, no special diet, I eat dinner about an hour before I go to the gym, my routine is an hour spent in muscle (I do an hour of cardio before that)

In the process I do thighs, legs, back, stomach, biceps, triceps and shoulders, with the exception of back and legs, I only do very few reps at the maximum I can lift, my back and legs are at the point now where I can lift 150 kilograms with either with ease, I've started bringing weights from the unused dumbells onto the leg machine just to challenge myself, also, when doing the legs, going up onto my toes rather than remain flat-footed is a good way to get a little extra out of each lift, to help fill the time I'll just sit there with my legs taking 150 kilos of weight and I'll just listen to music until it starts to hurt, which tends to take a good while.

Legs of steel baby.

Biceps are my proudest, I can lift 105 kilograms and just about do three reps, triceps and shoulders are harder and I can do about 70 kilos with 5 reps, stomach is my weakest, I can do 10 reps at 30 kilos, thighs I can also do 150 kilos with but I do ten reps and it's challenge.

I do two sets with a thirty second break in between and then have a two minute break between each one, to fill in the time I'll do breathing exercises to ensure minimum lactic acid during each set, most times I breathe regularly but when really staining sometimes my focus is entirely on lifting and not on breathing.

In terms of effectiveness, I experimented with doing my absolute limit and only a few reps with my biceps first, in the space of about five months I tripled my maximum lifting capacity and in the process earned more stamina, my chest also tightened up because of the nature of the machine I use (you sit down in a semi-squatting position and pull on a grip that's above, so as you pull down, it pulls the weights up via cables or whatever) so I'm now applying it to everything else.

I'm a tubby f*cker but I can lift most people with one arm on a good day and if I'm p!ssed off enough.

I do lots of cardio. An hour and a half each morning of heavy cardio 6 days a week, and a minimal amount of weights just to maintain stuff.

The best nutrition advice i have is peanuts. I eat them all the time. They give me energy, they fill me, they are incredibly convenient, and they're good fiber. More often than not peanuts are my breakfast. I also drink some energy drinks early in the morning before, but i don't drink coffee, and i get up incredibly early.

I do half of a P90X workout and play a lot of tennis (if I do the whole workout, I'll be too sore for tennis). I also do a ton of running, biking, waterskiing, swimming, and kayaking.

Glory and praise to Allah!

If you think we don't realise what you're trying to do, you're wrong.

Your screwed up profile, deliberately contradicting opinions, psuedo-offensive avatar, you think you're smart enough to play everyone like a fifty cent kazoo when you aren't even smart enough to make yourself look like you actually believe any of the sh!t you say.

The art of trolling is to act as if you are utterly serious about what you say and believe.

So, ultimately, whatever it is you think you're accomplishing is never going to happen.

And it doesn't matter what you believe, the fact that you even attempted any of this sh!t makes you a total prick now and forever.

Race you to hell.
