    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

    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.

    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.

    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 :mamoru:


    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.

    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.

    this routine isn't for people who get fatigued and feel like they should stop
