    full body routine

    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

    Day 1
    squat
    benchpress
    tbar row
    military press
    bb curl

    day 2
    Deadlift
    incline db bench
    dips for tris
    pullups
    side raise

    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?

    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?

    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.
