muscle building log

#1 Postby varun » Tue Dec 17, 2013 6:36 am

Thought I'd start logging what I do at the gym and hopefully get a few pointers as I'm not great at tracking.
About me: I've been a regular gym gooer for over 5-6 years and my goal is to build more muscle but not completely lose my athleticism. I've had mixed results but have hit a plateau over the last 2 years.

Training schedule: for the last 2 months I've switched to a full body workout 3 times a week however I haven't seen huge gains. As of this week after reading through material here I've switched to changing around the # of reps in each set.

Sunday:
Dead lifts - 5 sets (15,12,10,8,6)
Bench press - same as above with the last set continuing to drop sets to failure
Single arm dumbbell press 5 sets (15,12,10,8,6)
Pulley bicep curl (single arm) - 3 sets of 8 reps
Ab machine - 3 sets

Full body? Where is the leg work?

I was going to do squats at my next training day. Do you not think deadlifts are enough for that day?

Yeah, depends what you are going for. Some people like to alternate days upper body and lower body. Others like to do full body all in the same day. If you are shooting for full body in the same day definitely add squats and 2 or 3 other lower body types.
