Re, Right away I would like to apologize if some of my questions overlap with those addressed in the FAQ (I did read it but still am confused about certain things). I am 6"2 and weigh 165 pounds, so I can be classified as "ectomorph" yet in appearance I do not look that "skinny". I live a sedentary life and haven't been to the gym for the past N years. I bought "Volumass 35" (35g protein, 2.5g creatine, 0.5g taurine, 10g BCAA and 8g Glutamine) and Creatine Monohydrtate to facilitate my diet, training and weight gain. Thanks to the web site, I fugred out my diet but.. got stuck when figuring out the excercise program. I decided to do HTS instead of BFL and other "popular" programs. So, my questions are as follows (unfrotunately where I live there is no one to help me out, hence I resort to seeking advice from on-line resources): 1) Since I haven't been very active starting excercising will hurt a great deal the next day. Recalling my last visit to the gym, I required a week of recuperating due to overexerise. How do I "safely" start and how does this start tie in with the HTS program? 2) Should I start taking creatine right away with the whey protein supplement (it also has 2.5 creatine per serving)? 3) How would I determine my max load for the first day of the first week and what if I can't increase it by 5% the second day? 4) After the second week and starting with 10 reps, what is the optimal formula to calculate the amount I should lift (is is the 2nd week end amount - 10% with 5% increase each other day?) 5) Some people say that excercising 3 times a week will not bring any results compared to going to the gym 5 times a week and excercising 1 mussle (or group of mussles) 1 day a week. How true is this statement? 6) It was mentioned that there are big and small mussles. Could someone please tell me which ones are big/strong (hence where I should apply more weight) and which ones are small/weak? 7) When and should I start taking "tribulus"? A store salesman tried selling it to me but I decided to wait and see what people advise. That's about it. I apologize if some of these questions were addressed before, I just couldn't find an answer. Thank you in advance! I'll be a happy camper if this program adds few pounds to my lean "greek statue-like" body.
