    help w/ rep ranges

    Just kidding.
    so I got sick of reading routines and T-mag articles to figure out new routines and such, and i made my own. because i know my goals and body better than anyone else, right? so here we go...btw i would appreciate any analyzation and advice on rep ranges in particular

    speed bench 6x
    close grip bench 4x
    bench crunch 3x
    bench leg lift 3x
    military press 3x

    power straight 4x
    pushups 4x
    pullups till death
    dips till death


    hang snatch 3x
    hang clean 4x
    overhead squat 4x
    power upright rows 3x
    sldl focus on abs 3x

    bent row 4x
    good morning 3x
    power shrug 3x
    bicep curl 3x
    hanging leg raise 4x



    To be honest, i don't have any particular goals regarding size. i just want to be more powerful, more mobile. i want to be agile and strong and just be able to move around quick, for athletics and fighting and etc.

    To be honest, I'm not exactly sure what some of those lifts are. I'm not very knowledgeable as far as olympic lifting goes. But I will say one thing. If you want to develop power, I'd suggest doing some Deadlifts. It has helped me more than anything else has.

    For your strength make sure your doing bench/squats/deads/pull ups/dips/ You could have a strength week were you go really heavy on these lifts doing 3 sets of 8/6/4 for strength maybe 6/6/4 then the next week do you speed work etc just a thought

    You should stick w. lower reps for the olympic lifts and exercises like speed bench an overhead squats. Basically, you want to stick w. lower reps on anything that requires a lot of concentration, speed, technique and/or balance.

    I would do your rows AFTER the good mornings. It may not matter, but I try not to prefatigue my lower back with anything before doing GMs.
