Need advice on new routine
Hey, just joined a new gym and would like some opinions on the routine ive been given by personal trainer.
Not sure the content of sets and reps is enough. Basically been going to gym for ten years, have fairly defined body but need to change my routine as my body shape is stuck in a rut. Im 6ft 2 and 11.5 stone, so obviously fairly skinny but do heavy weights when I work out. My new routine is like this:-
Workout for monday
Squats 1 set of 20
Shrugs 2 sets of 15
Leg Press 3 sets of 10
Leg Raise 3 sets of 20
Crunch 2 sets of 20
Side Bridge 2 sets of 10
Workout for wed's and friday
Bench Press 1 set of 15
Dumb bell row 3 sets of 10
Shoulder Press 3 sets of 10
Lat Pulldown 3 sets of 10
What worries me is why only 1 set for bench press and why no bicep and tricep exercises
Have also changed my diet to consume at least 3000 calories.
There is a definate lack of movements for the glute/ham muscles. There should be some kind of deadlift in there, or at the very least a leg curl.
One set for bench does seem silly since everything else for upper body has multiple sets. Still, there is nothing wrong with a single set in the right program.
Check out the routines here on WBB. I'm sure you'll find something better.
