This is just a routine that he came up with and I have some mixed thoughts on it and looking for some opinions. The numbers represent reps. Let us know!!
No reason to workout 5 days in a row. You'll burn out fast. Take a look at the stickies for some premade routines.

i knew you were a beast but not that kinda of a beast that eats grown men and children.. lilmase
K, thx. We've been working out 3 days a week for some time now and just feel its not enough. I'll check out those threads though. Thanks for the input.
Looks ok to me. Five days straight is a lot of work, but if you can handle it more power to you. Just make sure you get sufficient rest every night and take it easy on your off days.
Yeah, that was the plan. I sleep about 8 hours a night (lucky me). I'm trying to lower my body fat slowly and am in no hurry! Just trying to stay steady. We only plan on running this routine for a month possibly two, depending on how we feel. Again thanks for the input!
There are two camps here on this forum.
Get strong to get big
mostly compound movements
very little isolation exercises
More rest days than workout days
Switching routines often
Lotsa isolation movements
Try to hit every muscle from every angle
You have to decide which camp you want to follow and which one you think will bring the best gains in the least ammount of time. Do some reading around this site, look at the articles, read some of the journals (not the pro journals, those guys are very advanced). I already know which camp I believe because their numbers and pictures and videos back it up.
Yeah I understand the different camps thing, my buddy is my roommate and he wants to maintain his abs and low body fat percentage and is thinking about looks. I am currently overweight and want to slowly lose body fat and be strong! I love the compound lifts, he likes curls. So its a difference on what we want I think and trying to find a middle ground because we are the only workout partners we have. Dont get me wrong, I want to look good and get rid of my man tits but I wanna be strong too.
Then I would suggest looking at the Wannabebig routines. They are a good middle ground between the two camps.
After doing some more reading I'm going to talk to him and see if he is interested in doing the WBB 1.1. Thanks guys!
