I'm trying a new routine for a little change-up.

It's posted here:

I find that if I go for 75% of my 1RM that I can't do 8 reps.

I suspect I might not be warming up enough.

These small problems aside, is this a good workout to improve strength, or will it be overworking these big muscles, or underworking other areas?

I'm used to working each body part 1x per week (chest/tris, back/bis, legs/abs, and shoulders/traps/grip)

I'm alternating traps/grip on monday, abs on wed and calves on fri.

It actually should say "6-8 reps."

Also the FAQ should be coming out by this Friday. It should help, if not just pm me or post a question about it in the WBB routine forum.

It's meant to increase the three main lifts and revolves around the meat and potatoe lifts.

Yeah, I like it. I'll just add on the little things like calves, abs, and grip.

Thanks for the post, and that does make sense.

Can you post a link to the FAQ on this thread? I'll hold of on any other Q's until then.

Man, that workout really gets you.

I did one day and was really tired at the end of it. THIS WORKOUT IS NOT FOR THE WEAK! I can see that it would definately help anyone get past any plateau that they're facing.
