Ok guys, I think ive found a better "all around" routine. I used to just do pretty much all upper and only give my body one day off then hit it again but seemed slow in gains. In my other thread "overtraining", the resposnses of others convinced me to try new exercises and what not. Ive been lifting for 8months and havent really switched my routine at all. Basic BB bench, bb curls, shoulder press. Heres my new routine, im incorporating the 5x5 program.
Monday and Thursday- BP 5x5
Bent Over Rows 5x5
French press (skull crushers) 5x5
BB curls 5x5
Tuesday and Friday- BB squat 5x5
BB Military press 5x5
Dead Lift 5x5
BB Front Raise 5x5
Abs everyday???? Situps, laying leg raises while holding for a minute,Crunches.
Let me know if this would prove effective.
On a side note, im very limited on equipment, I have a standard bench and BB, saving for a set of adjustable of dumbells, so this is all I got for now. Thanks again.
Dude, use a premade routine. I know it's boring, and it's a lotta fun making your own, but lets get honest here. A proven routine is the way to go.
With this one you'll be deadlifting twice a week. Not good. And you're pressing four days a week.
Abs are a muscle too. Just like the all the other ones, they need rest.
If you want, you can go look at my old threads. Look at the "critique my routine" one. It's just dumb being a noob and trying to make a routine.
Just give in .
