I have been going to the gym for about 6 months now. Most of the time infrequently, but the last 2 months have been frequent. However, i had the idea i was overtraining. I was spending 2.5 hours in the gym doing all kinds of exercises. After reading this forum i decided to slash half of it and add some exercises. However, i do not want to risk overtraining again so i would like your opinion of the routine that i started doing.
First some personal info. I am 22 years old, 6.1 (185 cm) tall and i weigh 220 lbs (100 kg). My goal is to increase my lean muscle and decrease my body fat percentage. My current diet is low on carbs, high on protein and i try to stay around 2000, or lower, calories.
Now for the exercises:
Dumbbell shoulder press (3x8)
Bench press (5,5,5,3,3)
Squat (ass to grass) (5,5,5,3,3) (monday and friday)
Heavy barbell rows (5,5,5,3,3) (wednesday only)
This gives me 4 major compound exercises every day i go (monday, wednesday and friday). I also do 2 accessory exercises which could be, hammer curls, preacher curls, dips, pull ups and ab work.
Also, next to the three days i walk a lot. I don't have a car so i walk everywhere i have to go. This comes down to around 45-60 mins a day with maybe 2 hours in the weekend sometimes.
Last question is could you maybe give me the correct form on doing the benchpress. I have been stuck at the same weight for 5 weeks now and i think it might be because of bad form.
Sorry for so many questions but i have been fat for a long period of my life and i am really keen on turning that around.
Thanks in advance for any sort of advice.
