Please Critique my Routine:
Hi, this is your standard critique my routine new poster post >_< I have been lurking around here for awhile, have been happy with my gains but recently I began to feel as if I am lacking something. Big thick pecs a large v-shape I donít know what I will try to get some pictures up eventually to be critiqued.
I used to feel as if my back was lagging behind my chest, but now I feel as if my arms overpower my chest and back completely. I am pretty short about 5'6, weighing in at 160 pounds bf estimate at 13%-15% (Abs visible when flexing, slight outline not flexed). I have been working out for quite some time now, haven't really missed much training but didn't really know anyone about nutrition/routines. Probably 2-3 years working out following advice from Arnolds book. Then 3-4 years ago I found out about this site and posted here for a bit gained quite a bit of knowledge. Have been working out the whole time but it wasn't until recently that I have been putting more effort into my diet.
Anyways when I first posted here years ago I was about 135 lbs, I maintained 145 for a year, bulked up to about 150-155 maintained that for a year. In April I had dirty bulked up to 170, since then I have been cutting and I have cut down to 160, which I now plan to maintain for the summer. When I first started training all I did was work my beach muscles hence why my deadlift / squat poundages are pretty poor.
I do about a 5 minute fast walk warm up on incline, before each session and will warm up with the first exercise. so on chest day that would be bench press back - barbell rows, legs - squats.
