Hi, I have been looking at the different routines that people have posted and wanted to get some feedback on my current routine. I am doing the following routine
incline db bench
dips for tris
I do 2 sets per exercise and usually between 6-12 reps on some and 4-6 on others
I do the first routine then rest for two days then do the second routine and rest for two days and alternate. It is similar to a full body 3 times a week, however, I put in more rest days between workouts which make it 5 workouts in two weeks rather than 6 in two weeks. I also am using microloading to increase poundage every week. Is this a good routine? I currently have felt stronger doing this style than a split routine and the two days rest between workouts give me more energy. Any feed back would be greatly appreciated.
This routine is not very good.
What are your strength and mass building goals?
why is the routine not very good? I am gaining in strength every week and able to add a little weight every week so how is that bad?Originally Posted by Chris Tucker
You can gain strength and "add a little weight every week" doing squat-thrusts and hang cleans, but that doesn't make it a good routine.
I disagree, I think it looks good.
Are you progressing with this routine? If so, it's fine.
This routine is based on compound power movements, and should work well for anyone trying to gain mass and strength.

I'd agree, but it depends on your goals as well. What are they?Originally Posted by gino
Though if it were me I'd throw out the curls and side raises.
Also, you will hit a point where you cannot increase the weight a little bit each week. At that point you should periodize your routine a bit; in other words change up your volume and intensity otherwise you will stagnate.
looks good. i do a similar 2 day a week routine, and it's been working good.
looks good to me, if your making progress stick with it
