would PurEvl routine be good for a woman ? any exercises that should be avoided by her ?
thank you, same reps recommended ? anything to avoid?
id say appropriate weight and technique are the most important things you have to work with
i wouldn't recommend a bodybuilder's routine for a woman unless well, she really wants to become a bodybuilder
bodypart splits and training everything once per week, pretty much destroying whatever you hit that day just seems dumb for a female, especially if she's just getting into working out
i would learn basic exercises and do something like an upper/lower split, or some kind of 3 day split hitting everything 2-3x per week with less volume
doesnt it work the same for women, and by following the routine she wouldnt become a bodybuilder over night ? or would she
send that bitch to a crossfit class. they produce some tasty women
A woman doing a BB routine is not going to get huge.
Also, anyone doing a BB routine who is "destroying whatever [they] hit that day" is retarded.
The best thing to recommend for a woman is to find out what the fuck she we wants for results and what she wants to invest in it and then go from there as opposed to throwing a bunch of routines at her.
Women, how do they work.
lose 15lbs, be slim/athletic but she needs a push.. thought if she worked out besidesme doing the same routine would keep her going
IMO to keep a woman in the gym she needs to be self-motivated and invested in her own routine based on her own desires.
she was before,then she lost it, same as me... trying to get back at it and i want to help motivate her at least in the beginning
I'm 100% positive this has been answered at some point, but this thread is also 100 pages long, so I'm sure several questions have been asked multiple times
What's the rep split supposed to be like... i.e in the past I've gone 12, 10, 6ish while increasing weight...
For instance, on bench it says 8-12 reps... 3 sets... What does that mean?
am I just doing the same weight for between 8-12 reps? Am I doing something like 12, 10, and 8 reps (respectively) at progressively increasing weights (which is more or less how I've always done it)?
No hard and fast rule for the reps, basically just pick a weight and do it for 8-12 reps. They're ranges...so if I'm shooting for 12-15 reps I'll go lighter on a weight so I can hit that target. If it's only 6-8 reps I'll go heavy.
If you feel like you have some left in the tank after a set, do a drop set (drop the weight and bang out more reps). Play with the numbers and find what works for you.
Try single arm reverse pushdowns...

you subscribed to a fucking sticky? kill yourself now.
So I just started this routine. Took me a week to find out how much I can initially lift and go through the exercises. In some of the days, like shoulders and arms day, i'm finding it difficult to do some of the exercises because I seem to get tired. For example, after doing the barbell curls, the bicep curls and hammer curls seem to be a lot harder probably due to fatigue. Is it advisable to break it up, ie: do shoulder bicep triceps exercises or to keep it all shoulders then all triceps and then all biceps?
I don't think it is supposed to be easy... Obviously you get fatigued. You will get used to it.
If it were easy everyone would be jacked.
this routine isn't for people who get fatigued and feel like they should stop
i have been following this program with some variations for almost 7 months now, shit is bauce.
need to keep it up and add in more cardio and i will be yolked as fuck
props to the OP and advice along the way
Well when I mean break it up, I still mean in 1 workout, 1 session. For example, would it be better to train biceps, triceps, forearms etc in that order or do all biceps, then all triceps, then all forearms.
