new routine. please comment.


Recommended Posts

the idea is to really stimulate growth by hitting every muscle group twice a week, once hard and once light. i go for 4-8 reps every set except when it comes to legs and calves where i do 10+, every excersise i do for 3 sets.

 

 

Monday. Hard triceps & shoulders, light chest & legs

 

Squats

Narrow grip bench presses

Side lateral raises

Incline dumbell press

Cable front raises

Bent over lateral raises

Cable pushdowns

Shoulder presses

 

 

Tuesday. Hard biceps, light back & calves

 

Bent over barbell row (sup grip)

Calfpress

Hammercurls

EZ curls

Dumbell curls

 

 

Thursday. Hard chest, light triceps, front delts & legs

 

Incline dumbbell presses

Squats

Dumbbell bench presses

Dips (since my gym doesn't have a belt this becomes a high rep excersise)

Dumbbell flyes

Leg curls

 

Friday. Hard back, light biceps, calves, mid and rear delts

 

Chins (here i will do as many as i can for three sets, often around 8-12)

Bent over barbell rows

Lat pull downs (v-grip)

Calfpress

Upright rows

 

I know that the triceps gets hit pretty hard on thursdays and biceps on fridays but i think it will work out fine.

Due to an old injury i can't do deadlifts. Hopefully my back is okay by this fall so i can do a real hardcore routine.

 

please comment, criticize and give me ideas.

damn mark. i just realised it before i read your reply. i don't work my lower back because of an injury. hopefully i can start deadlifting and such this fall. the abs i do light, bodyweight, about two times a week or when i feel like it. often i do hanging leg lifts and crunches.

 

thanks for replying. really appriciate it.

You really can have growth working each muscle group hard twice a week. I did it working each group 3-4 times a week(didn't rest often but when I did I really rested...I also ate tons). I think you will grow much faster doing it this way. As for abs I think they should be part of every day's workout. They should really be a part of the warmup. Maybe not intense every day but its good to wake them up and get them ready for lifting.
