Bicep Curls 3 working sets
Db Lunges 6 working sets
Db Skull Crushers 2 sets

Day 2
Squats 4-5 working sets
Deadlifts 4-5 working sets
1 arm Db Overhead Press 4 working sets
Pulls ups 2 sets till failure (*hit at least 3 reps or work up to a total of 10)
Dips 2 sets till failure (*hit at least 3 reps or work up to a total of 10)
Hammer curls 4 sets

For the first month work in between 15 to 7 reps.
Keep adding 5-20lbs until you can not do 7 reps.(this will teach you about weight progression)

*Always do at least 2 warm up sets with just the empty bar, or light Dumbbells.*

For the second month taper down your reps between 12 to 5 reps
Alternate out some of your assistance movements for different yet similar ones.

For the third month taper down your reps to 10 to 3 reps.
Alternate out some of your assistance movements for different yet similar ones.

For the fourth month you should be ready for a different program.
This seems easy enough. I do not lift that much as I am a runner but I really should do more of this. I could stand to tone up a bit!
