  1. What would you recommend as a next step after progress begins to slow down on this? I’m doing something similar but I’m stalling… Do you switch up the exercises? Perhaps do fewer of them and concentrate on strength? Upper/lower split? So confused as to where to go from here.

  2. Hi John,

    You could stick with the beginner routine for at least 8 to 12 weeks, or longer is you are seeing results.

    What is your primary goal? Gaining muscle, losing fat? Or both?

  4. Should I do the overhead press in the front or to the back?

  5. I like the deadlift and RDL combo in the same workout because it only hammers you lower back once a week. I trained for many years with them on different days, so that is definitely an option. But I am finding that hitting RDLs after deadlifts is a great transition.

  6. That looks good but it seems doing doing deadlifts and the Romanian d.L in the sameworkout might “ouch” a little bit,most importantly you’re the pro and i’m the amatuer so I just might see how it works one day

  7. Clean and press is a great lift. I generally don’t recommend having beginners play around with Olympic lifts and variations until they have reasonable form with deadlift and squat, but that’s a personal thing :)
