Try squatting 3x a week, it'll put some man-size on you.
Either way, keep up your log so we can see exactly how you're training.
No ectomorph should train 5 times a week or anyone in more of a beginner stage you will make progress with 3 days a week just fine.
The training split all wrong thread is great have a read of it.
And as food is the most important thing u need to focus on that as in being fucking religious in your eating to eat enough, schedule your meals and make sure you eat them.
Your thyroid is on full blast, calories are burning fast, thats why you need lots of food. Also if you have real trouble gaining weight even with a ton of food check your thyroid status with an endocrinologist just to make sure you don't have hyperthyroidism or even a mild form of it
I've agreed with pretty much everyone above me. But I really think you should just train everything once a week for a couple months. Really start getting strong on your basic lifts and some smaller auxilory lifts once a week. Start eating more, and sleeping 8 hours a night.
After you get comfortable with all this. THEN move onto the extra advice as in working your legs more than once a week, etc. Don't do too much all at once.
Repeat three times weekly with mass quantities of food. Effect: Growth.
Tim makes some great suggestions. I just finished an upper/lower routine and it worked fantastic.
today im going to do arms.
i usually train at five pm so i have already had 4 good meals.
for biceps im going to do:
curls- 4-5 sets
machine curls- 4-5 sets
cable curls- 4-5 sets
then for forearms i will do 4-5 sets of reverse curls.
then for my last arm exercises i do tri's
pushdowns- 4-5 sets
rope pulldowns- 4-5 sets
i dont do dips because lately i have been having a pain in my chest everytime i do them.
and its weird because none of the rest of my chest exercises hurt me.
wouldnt i be over training if i do all those exercises three times a week.
not overtraining as in doing to much work but as in hitting one muscle three times a week.
besides i have been training for over a year and i think the split is good for i can focuse on improving one specific muscle.
^^ It is only overtraining if you are fatiguing your system too much. Too much is dependent on far too many factors. One drop set may be enough to overtrain you in one cycle, but drop sets for every exercise might be needed to overtrain on another. If you don't get enough sleep just training could overtrain you!! Just realise that you have to have weeks (usually once every 4-6 weeks) that you drop the training volume or load off by 20% to allow recovery and over compensation.
As for your chest hurting: what type of dips (bench, parra bar, machine?) and where in the chest (clavicle, sternum, muscle belly, ?). If it is from bench dips stop doing them completely.
I understand you're young, but the more you realize that arms don't need much of a stimulus to grow, the sooner you start seeing overall bodily changes.
I think your arms workout is upside down. The biceps need maybe 3-4 sets; it's one of the smallest muscle bellies in the entire human musculature, and is one of the smallest in the upper arm. It's more appealing, but honing in on the triceps during arm day is more important.
Try this, bro:
Barbell Curls: 3-4 x 12
Closegrip Bench: 3 x 8-12
Skullcrushers: 4 x 6-12
Rope pulls: 3 x 8-12
This should be sufficient load to microtraumize the fibers themselves. Remember, growth is induced and determined by a a stimulus. Using the stimulus to annihilate your muscle fibers can do more harm than good, especially on a cellular level!
Hope this helps, good luck.
