    Routine due to Limitations

    Hey guys. I work out of my garage with a BB, 20lb DBs, weights, and a bench/rack. Im a little limited in what i can do but in the near future iw ill be getting a dip tower/pull up tower which i will incorporate into my workout. For now, though, heres whats going on

    for heavy compound movements: 5x5
    For isolation work: 3x8
    For dips and pullups i will prob do BW till failure till i can work up to 3x8 then add weight

    The weight is always changing so yeah didnt bother putting it up and of course i do warm up sets

    Day 1:
    Bent Over BB Rows
    BB Standing Military Press
    Shrugs
    Deadlifts
    (pull ups in the future)

    Day 3:
    Flat BB Bench
    Incline BB bench
    Db flies
    Tricep kickbacks
    Skull crushers
    (dips in the future)

    Day 5:
    Squats
    standing calf raises
    Leg extensions/lunges
    straight leg deadlifts
    bicep work (BB curls/preacher curl)

    Plus ab work on either rest days or days when im feeling especially motivated

    I feel like my upper back isnt getting worked enough...i could be wrong and of course that will change once pull ups come around. Im also thinking possibly too much chest work on day 3. Any pointers to improve onthis?

    For your upper back try laying on your bench stomach down and doing kind of high rows putt the DB's up at shoulder height. This should work your upper back good. Your chest work isn't to bad, I do 2 chest exercises but have done 3 in the past and I don't think its necessarilly hurting you any. If you want to get rid of one get rid of the flies.

    I know you have to push some pretty heavy weight to see muscle growth and for the cleans and variations dont you just kinda drop the weight at the end? I have hard plates on a garage floor...i dont feel right just dropping them obviously...that would cause problems. And i realize you can just lower the weight down but wouldnt i be pushing less then thus causing minimal growth?

    I see kickbacks are no good but dont know why...care to explain? either way they are gone haha but thx in advance

    They put your body in a position of mechanical disadvantage, therefore you move much less weight.
