GJ1234 is off to a bad start
Default heavy/light

Ok,
I just started a 4 day heavy/light bodybuilding program that I found here on muscle and brawn. It says to do a heavy leg exercise followed by a light leg exercise on the same day 2x per week. So on Sunday and Thursday I do chest/shoulders/tris and on Tuesday and Friday I do back/legs/bis. But it looks like I'm using the same weight percentages on both days. So my question is:do I use the same weight for squats on Tuesday and Friday? I just want to make sure I didnt miss something, because according to the workout you do the same weight.

Sure thing: http://muscleandbrawn.com/forum/work...t-routine.html

Oh, I'm not the OP.

To be fair, opie probably couldn't, because of the newbie barrier preventing that...

looks to me that you just do it as written, same weights, until you reach set/rep goal with good form then add weight.

Default thank you

Thank you Gorship! I thought that's what they meant, but wanted to make sure. I'm 46 And hopefully can train pretty hard for some years to come.

Welcome! You will get the most out of the site by starting a training log. Great to see how that routine works out for you.

Hey GJ - You may want to post a little more info about yourself, i.e., experience lifting, goals, etc. My concern is that the routine you're using may be too much volume considering your age (46). Just a suggestion.
