5 days straight?
+ why add smith mil press? just add in db shoulder press
military is in dumbbell
I could just move squats to thursday
thats alot of volume for chest
Some people really really shouldnt write their own routines.. nice job posting it all fancy on a webpage though.
what's wrong with it?
edit: I used to follow this routine a few years ago.. saw some pretty nice gains, but plateaued after about a year and a half
edit #2: I usually did 3 sets of everything, though
i just noticed your deadlift goal seems out of proportion with your squat/bench
personally too much volume for chest, but what are your goals? strength, hypertrophy?
long-term goal: look like Ryan Reynolds (I'm Asian.. being big doesn't look good on my frame)
short-term goal: gain muscle and strength, whereafter I'll start cutting down
bench is with dumbbells, for reps
I used to deadlift like 335 for reps (5x5), and my back has always been my strongest muscle
my chest can handle that much volume... I'm more worried about back, shoulders, and arms (my shoulders and arms are my weak point)
Try increasing the weight and lowering the reps. I personally stick to 5-6 reps per set, especially during bulking.
you should try doing a Max-OT style workout, its kind of like yours where it targets a muscle group once a week, but with lower reps and heavier weight.
hers a pdf file explaining it, i've seen some good results with it
i think he means the DB's
sorry, dumbbells. Same with military press
I can't do barbells on bench or military. Bad rotator cuff for bench, and no spotter + precarious bar positioning on the military press station
lots of people do well witht this...
you got too much ab shit in the one u are doing now
bruce lee did like 100 sets of abs a day, and he didn't have any problems with his midsection
just because you are asian doesn't meant that you are bruce lee
You are not bruce lee, doing 100 sets a day is not practiacal or a great idea, scale it back to twice a week at most. Abs like bruce lees are made in the kitchen, not by doing crunches.
somehow, I doubt he got rock-hard abs by eating well.
I know I'm not bruce lee, but you guys aren't Dave Tate, so why follow other people's routine?
also, my routine only has abs twice a week
That makes no sense
WTF are rope pull downsthen?
