1. My favorite site is www.exrx.net It is free, no need to register. Has many sections to assist

 

one in making a plan. Two day splits, three day splits, four day, power lifting, cardio, and so on with exercise suggestions to go along with those sections. It's easy enough to make a plan with the information they provide.

Another I've heard good stuff about is bodybuilding.com but I have no personal experience with it.

I am in the gym 4 - 5 days a week, for about 1.5 hours of actual workout each time. I don't spend much time talking with people, just go from one set to another with minimal rest periods. I've used a personal trainer three times, the first was to get guidance in dead lift and squat, and two more sessions for assistance with additional work on legs and back exercises. We discovered that because I work alone, I've been holding back. For example, on the 1 arm bent dumbbell row, I've never gone over 35 lbs. We discovered that for my final set (of 5 sets) I managed 60 lbs for 12 reps. Surprised both of us.
