Rookie's Thread - Adventures of a Trainer
Ok, so I got my first year of training in, I'm still a rookie at this and need to continue to experiment and find out what will and won't work for me. I'm hoping this journal will help me figure that out. If anyone peeks and wants to offer helpful opinions :help:, advice or just comments, please do. :cool:
I'm training for muscle size and lower BF. I'll train for strength just to help out the first goal but I'm not specifically trying to do any powerlifting. I've just finished a mild(?) bulking session and have added cardio to start my cutting session.
I’ve tried a number of splits, 3 day and 4 day in the past and I'm finding that 3 days works best for my schedule at the moment. I’ve never done a split like the WBB routines, so since I’m posting a journal here at WBB, I figure that I might as well give them a try. So I’ll start with workout one for 8 to 12 weeks. I generally give my routines 2 to 3 months to see if something works or not. I will however, sub in various exercises as the weeks progress sometimes just try something new.
So my current routine will look like this:
Sat - AM: Chest & Back
Mon - PM: Legs
Wed - PM: Arms & Shoulders
My lifts are pretty sad :cry: however, they have progressed over time and I'll be looking forward to some added improvements with this new routine.
