    Your back and chest are two of the largest muscle groups in the body - so why work them only once per week?

    That's a ridiculous statement, with no logic. If you work your legs w/ weights, and make them stronger, you will run faster.

    DO NOT perform the wannabebig routines - hitting bodyparts only once per week is not optimal. I find it interesting how the wbb routines hit each bodypart only once per week, yet Lyle MacDonald, in...

    Jorge, lifting every other day is fine - 3-4 days per week. However, I would suggest varying the set/rep parameters to reduce the risk of overtraining and frying your CNS.

    Going to failure on your sets is bad - it is not something you should seek. Avoiding failure will keep your central nervous system from being ****ed up, and thereby allow you to lift more often and...

    randy, that's certainly much better than your original routine, IMO. Although I do something very close to what trout mentioned above, in my early 20's, I did the following w/ good results:

    Yup, I do something similar as well. I pretty much use instinctive training - every time I hit the gym, I do something different - but each workout looks something like what you posted. I will...

    Ahh, gotcha. Seems fine then. I'm still a big fan of hitting movement planes vs. bodyparts each workout. Meaning upper/lower, push/pull, or full body. Your bodyparts work together, not in...

    Nope - the only reason bodypart once per week routines came into vogue is because juice-mongering bbers were doing them - so M & F printed those silly routines, and natural lifters figured they...

    That's fine, but get rid of the pulldowns - they are the red-headed step-sister (or is that step-child?) to pull-ups and chins - also, you've got plenty of vertical pull volume without them.

    Also,...

    I don't like it - you hit back the day after biceps, and triceps the day after chest. IMO, use either an upper/lower, push/pull, or full body split.

    push/pull:

    Day 1 - Barbell flat bench, full...

    Why would you do back the day after hitting your biceps, and shoulders and tris the day after hitting chest? Doesn't make sense. You need to allow for recovery. IMO, try either an upper/lower or...

    Just b/c it's on WBB1 doesn't mean it's the most effective way to go. If one is relatively new to lifting, almost anything will have some benefits. However, IMO, hitting each bodypart at least...

    Nothing wrong w/ inclines and hack squats. Admittedly the routine blows, but inclines and hack squats are fine, depending upon the rest of the routine of course.

    I have a better suggestion - don't have an arm day - they are among the smallest muscles in your body - it is senseless to devote an entire day to them.
