Ok, new log.
I've done a full body routine when I started out training, it's been a while since then and as I agree with "the best routine is the one you are currently not doing" I started one again.

Some weights are pretty low, I haven't done some of the exercises for a while so gotta get use to them again. Also working on form for some, I'll add weight along the way.

So full body routine, 5 days a week. Reps ranges are 5x5 and 4x10 alternating between group 1 and 2.
Alternating(no supersets) between excersise A1 and A2, B are straight sets - so for group1 it's a set of bench, set of rows, bench, rows, etc.

Monday:
Group1 (5x5)
A1 - DB bench: 28kg 1x5 - 30kg 4x5
A2 - BB rows: 50kg 5x5
B - Front squats: 50kg 5x5 -always all the way down.

Group2 (4x10)
A1 - Military press: 30kg 4x10
A2 - Pullups: bw 4x10
B- Straight leg deads: 30kg 1x10 - 35kg 1x10 - 40kg 2x10


Teusday:
Group1 (4x10)
A1 - DB bench: 28kg 4x10
A2 - BB rows: 45kg 2x10 - 47kg 2x10
B - Front squats: 45kg 4x10

Group2 (5x5)
A1 - Military press: 35kg 1x5 - 37kg 2x5 - 40kg x5 - 42kg x5
A2 - Pullups: bw 5x5
B- Straight leg deads: 45kg 5x5

Thursday:
Group1 (5x5)
A1 - DB bench: 32kg 5x5
A2 - BB rows: 50kg 1x5 - 52kg 1x5 - 54kg 1x5 - 56kg 1x5 - 58kg 1x5
B - Front squats: 50kg 1x5 - 52kg 1x5 - 54kg 1x5 - 56kg 2x5

Group2 (4x10)
A1 - Military press: 32kg 2x10 - 34kg 1x10 - 35kg 1x10
A2 - Pullups: bw 4x10
B- Straight leg deads: -skipped cause felt something funny in hamstrings.

Friday:
Group1 (4x10)
A1 - DB bench: 30kg 4x10
A2 - BB rows: 47kg 1x10 - 50kg 3x10
B - Front squats: 45kg 4x10

Group2 (5x5)
A1 - Military press: 40kg 2x5 - 42kg 2x5 - 44kg 1x5
A2 - Pullups: bw 5x5
B- Straight leg deads: 50kg 2x5 - 55kg 3x5

Last one of the week later. Bench and pullups are about right, most others are pretty easy at the moment. Form is really good.
Also I found out my DB bars can take more than I thought , so I can keep adding weight without buying new ones, cool!

Today:

Group1 (5x5)
A1 - DB bench: 32kg 3x5 - 34kg 2x5
A2 - BB rows: 55kg 1x5 - 57kg 1x5 - 59kg 1x5 - 60kg 1x5 - 62kg 1x5
B - Front squats: 55kg 1x5 - 57kg 1x5 - 60kg 1x5 - 62kg 1x5 - 64kg 1x5

Group2 (4x10)
A1 - Military press: 35kg 2x10 - 37kg 1x10 - 39kg 1x10
A2 - Pullups: bw 4x10

Thoughts after week 1: I like this routine, don't know how long I'll keep it, I'll see how I feel after a couple of weeks. Some exercises still pretty easy but form is cool. Pretty happy about the benching though.

Db bench press 3 days in a row and then military press the next day, you don't try to give your chest a rest in between workouts? Just curious as to why, not criticizing.

When I was hitting my chest to the absolute max and to the point of avoiding other bodyparts just to accentuate chest workouts, I still never did it every day in a row.

Hey Lean and Green,
I think you missread. Group1 and 2 are done in the same session so I'm not accentuating any parts, every exercise is done every training day.

I'll see if 2 days are enough for recovery, it's been fine this week though.

Why? Well, it's very different to what I've been doing for the last couple of routines and I like to change things up.

I think you have really nice training program, front squats ftw!

Something I wonder:

If you can do pullups 4 x 10 (which is nice :)), do you have to work at all to do 5 x 5? I think

Also, bench on mon+tue and thu+fri -> wouldn't work for me at all. Trying to do bench press 2 days in a row would hurt like hell and I would be able to do about at 50 % power on the second day. But if it works for you (at least you're growing allright 8)) then go for it.

Yeah the 5x5 pullups are easy, still feels good though. I'm taking it slow but I will add weight to them next 5x5 session.

Saturday aswell :wink:
It's the only chest exercise so instead of doing 1 chest day and pick 5 exercises this routine has one 5 days a week.

Did a load of deadlift warmups, then did:

70kg x1
90kg x1
100kg x1
110kg x1 <= switched to mixed grip
120kg x1
100kg x2
90kg x4
70kg x5

Then did some clean & push presses:

50kg x2
55kg x1
60kg x1
65kg x1/2 <= got clean but failed push press

Good fun!

I skipped yesterdays workout and today I did something completely different again. The weather was really nice today so I decided to workout outside.

I went to get a piece to fix my car at the car scrap yard and also wanted some wheels with tires on to put on a bar for lifting outside. I got some forklift ones for free, they are 45kg each. They first said those are much to heavy and I said they are fine and they where sort of joking about it... until I lifted one in the car easily and the other guy struggled lifting the other one. Pretty funny actually.
So I got some cool wheels, I need to adapt them a little so I can put them on a bar.

Anyway today was lots of fun and pretty tuff actually.


-Tire flips(45kg): x12 x12 x12

-One arm DB clean&press: 26kg x6 x6 x6 (each side)

-Supine rows: +10kg plate on chest x14 x14 x14

-Dips: +30kg x8 x8 x10

-DB goblet squats: 26kg x8 x10 x10
SS w/
-DB swings: 26kg x8 x10 x10

-DB lunges: 26kg x10 x8 x6 (each side)

-DB rows 26kg x20 (each side)
