    Wow. This is one of the worst I've ever seen, and there have been quite a few stinkers lately.

    Bloody hell!! I didnt thin it was that bad, i have bene using it and have noticed the difference and i am definatey stronger.

    I sometimes swap and do some dead lifts in there

    I have a problem with my gym because i have my garage which is good but cant use that al the time as it is boring, then i have 2 other gyms, one has a set of dumbells and that is it, the other has a set of dumbells, a smith machine and some free weights!

    I think i needa new gym and a new routine eh!!

    I have had a lok at te WBB 1 and it doesnt look that god, obviously it is but on first lok i didnt think yeah ill try that, i may give WBB 2 a try if mine is that bad.

    What is so bad about it?

    Cheers

    You must spend at least 4 hours working out everyday.

    Seems to me to focus too much on upper body work and not enough core or lower body movements.

    The volume is sky high.
    me: so this is the "pump" you speak of
    me: I could never figure out what people were talking about
    Relentless: like an all over body hardon, yeah

    I have just realised what i have done i started on this routine, i have recently (last 3 weeks) changed the sets from 6 sets of 12 etc to 3 sets of 5 or 5 sets of 5, i used to do a lot of squats and keep the leg work going.

    I have been doing for example

    box squats - 5 x 80kg, 5 x 100kg, 5 x 120 kg, 5x 100kg, 5 x 80kg

    Opps, just read it and i thought as well my god stupid routine!

    Takes me ust over an hour on the weights and 10 mins cardio at the end.

    With this routine would i just go for as much weight as i can, always trying to add the plates.

    for example would i do all chest and then all back or alternate them??

    Day 1 : Chest and Back

    Chest

    Flat Barbell Bench Press : 2 x 6-8 reps
    Low Incline Dumbbell Press : 2 x 6-8 reps
    Dips : 2 x 6-8 reps

    Back

    Chin ups : 2 x 6-8 reps
    Deadlifts : 2 x 6-8 reps
    Barbell Rows : 2 x 6-8 reps
    Shrugs : 1 x 10 reps


    It just seems to me that there is not an awful lot on it, you can prob tell e otherwise but i look at that and think 35 mins and i am out.

    If you reckon i should swap my routine over let me knoe

    Cheers guys

    There a lot of people who know what they are talking about around here. Just trust them.

    Started WBB 1.1

    Ok, i have started yesterday on WBB 1.1, today my back is killing, me, i have not done good mornigns properly for a few years, so when i started my god they felt good.

    I have never done the lunge with dumbells so these are all new to me.

    What weight should i have on my good morninga, yesterday i worked out my reps with about 40kg, just to give you an idea i do my largest set of squats at 120kg (this is not my PB but the squat rack will only allow up to 120 kgs (264.5 pounds))

    Cheers guys
