First off, I'd like to say the plans for the Bench Press Contest to benefit charity I mentioned in another thread is going great. Thanks for all the input!
Anyway, I have sort of a weird workout. Everytime I talk to other guys about my routine they look at me like I'm doing something wrong. After the third or fourth person looked at me like I fell out of a dog's ass, I began to worry. So I'll post what I do here and you guys tell me if I am doing something horribly wrong or something. Or if you guys can think of something better.
Ok, I do two exercises for each muscle, except for hamstring...I only do one exercise for that muscle...I just realized that now, I don't know why.
For benchpress I do five sets. I do 5 reps the first set, 4 the next, 3, 2, and then I finish at 2. I got this from Pavel Tsatsouline online and it seems to be working pretty well for me. I'm 150 lbs and I'm benching 200 lbs at the end of this workout, which I think is pretty damn good. And the weight has been going up pretty steadily.
I follow the same set up (5 sets, 5r, 4r, 3r, etc) for all my leg exercises except for calves.
My split is pretty weird too:
Day 1: Chest/Legs/Abs
Day 2: Triceps/Biceps/Forearms/Back/Shoulders
Day 3: Chest/Legs/Abs again
So I do Chest/Legs/Abs twice a week. I've been getting great gains this way, but even I have to admit it looks weird.
I just don't know...I'm experiencing great gains for my Chest and Legs and Abs as far as what I'm lifting, but all my other muscles have been pretty much stagnant. I've been doing the same weight for a while for Day 2 and not felt strong enough to go up in weight.
