I'm pretty sure he'll get better results from this than sitting on his ass on the couch.

Instead of maybe saying he won't get results, EXPLAIN what he can do to fix his routine?

Since you're new to working out, I'd put a pause on pretty much everything you are doing right now and just build your base strength and work on form and basics

I'd recommend StrongLifts 5x5 or Rippletoe Starting Strength. After you feel comfortable with the weights, maybe slowly change it up and then ease into a routine fit for you. It seems to me that you're trying to do too much

This is very good advice.

monday
back: wide grip pull ups with 10lbs of assistance 10 reps, then without a break another 10 reps this time with 40 lbs assistance. Repeat 3 more times for 4 sets total.
Chest: flat dumbbell press 4 sets of 6 reps (heavy weight), flat dumbbell flies 4 sets of 6 reps (heavy weight)
Quads: Barbell Squat 4 sets of 6-10 reps, leg press 4 sets of 6-10 reps

tuesday
biceps: standing ez curls 4 sets of 6 reps, close grip chin-ups 4 sets of 6 reps
triceps: decline close grip bench to skull crushes 4 sets of 6 reps (each movement)
shoudlers: military press on smith machine4 sets of 6 reps, shoulder press 4 sets of 6 reps
calves: seated calf raises 4 sets of 6-10 reps, resistance band raises 4 sets of 6-10 reps

weds: rest

thursday
back: bent over barbell rows 3 sets of 12 reps, seated cable rows 3 sets of 12 reps
chest: incline bench press 3 sets of 12 reps, cable crossovers 3 sets of 12 reps
quads: leg press 3 sets of 12 reps, dumbbell lunges 3 sets of 12 reps

friday
biceps: preacher curls 3 sets of 12 reps, close grip chin-ups 2 sets to failure,zottman curls 3 sets of 12 reps
triceps: close grip bench press 3 sets of 12 reps, weighted dips 3 sets of 12 reps
shoulders: arnold dumbbell press 3 sets of 12 reps, rocky presses 3 sets of 12 reps
calves: seated calf raises 3 sets of 12, calf press on the leg press machine 3 sets of 12 reps

saturday+sunday: rest

notes:
every monday, switch between dumbbell press and bench press

eat every couple hours, or whenever hungry like not really racist! said, drink a whey protein shake post workout, and a casein protein shake before bedtime, sleep at least 8-10 hours

how does that sound, im young so i havent plateud or anything and apparently i can only gain at this point, i got the idea of doing those muscles on those days with those rep ranges from this website: http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/wotw55.htm
Read this and then this and then eat lots and then get big.

So I've search on here for a bit and get the sense that a personal trainer is quite a waste of money. I have a belly, 6ft, 185lbs, and also have high cholesterol and blood pressure which I managed to lower in the past 3 months through dieting. My main purpose is to create a set of exercises that I can do daily or every other day; but a routine that's good for myself. I'm not sure if the internet is enough to do so. Not really looking to lose weight but to evenly distribute it and to sustain an efficient cardiovascular workout. Muscles are a welcome bonus.

Where should I start?

The oval has a Jump Start Package that seems less intimidating than that Fitness World thread ... what about Steve Nash? (I live in Richmond). Or perhaps just which facility in general to compliment a self workout?

TIA

I would just like to say Welcome to all the new people posting in here. Feel free to ask lots of questions but try searching this thread abit if you can and read the FAQ thread. Dont get intimidated by some of the responses you get. Theres alot of idiots in here and alot of opinionated people in here. But we all started nowhere and asked the same questions once too.

If you are dedicated and committed to educating yourself on an ongoing basis, know you can stay motivated consistently, and have confidence in knowing that you are doing your exercises safely/correctly, then getting a personal trainer would probably be a "waste of money". Mind you, it is never a bad idea to get one to start things off, even if it is just for ONE session. Most people get trainers more for the accountability issue in regards to sticking with their routine.... when you work 12 hours days and have kids you need to cook for, you need someone to be there waiting for you, and knowing you are paying someone, to get up at 5am and work out before work at 6am.

Not legit sorry bro. The only useful thing of the smith machine is for pyramids.

smith machine has its purposes. occasionally i do shoulder presses or incline bench on the smith machine. i find doing incline bench on the smith machine once in a while seems to isolate a little more. and i do standing calf raises in the smith machine

its not useless, it just shouldnt be a staple.
