My routine. Need thoughts and help.
I'm a beginner with free weights at my home. I'm not looking to become huge, just slightly bigger. I wont say a weight because I can't guess.
But here's my routine for my upperbody:
I do 2 sets. When I get to 8 Reps of a particular weight I increase the weight. I leave one minute between the first and 2nd set, I rarely get as many out in my 2nd set, it's more for endurance I guess.
Close grip Chest press
Behind Head Shoulder Press (I don't know it's actual name)
Bent Over Rows
Chest Press Wide Grip
1 Arm Bent Row
1 Arm Shrugs
I'm wondering if this is ok or do I need more exercises for different body parts? I'm thinking about dropping the "Behind the Head Shoulder Press" and the "Deadlifts" because I keep hurting my shoulder and my back from poor technique. I'm strapped for time, it takes approx. 2 hours for that routine.
I do that 3-4 times a week depending on how I feel. (I normally take a 2 day break over the weeked). Do I need a larger break?
Thanks for any help you guys and gals can give me.
