im thinking it looks ok but i think ppl might say its quite abit of volume......thanks in advance.
Almost 30 different lifts and more than 100 working sets, I'd say that's a bit much for somebody at your level. But I'm a big believer in simplicity, so who knows. . .
I agree with OR. Pick a primary compound each day, bust your ass on it for 30-45 mins and follow up with 2-3 assistance movements with 3-5 sets each! Simple does it, those awesome gains come not from isolating or switching!
Good luck man =)
thanks guys, but is there any routines ud suggest (no barbell benching though)
What's your goals?
well im currently trying to drop some weight by doing CNS and looking to try to maintain the little strength i have to begin with
But there are other routines out there that will work well too. Just wait and I'm sure many will help you out.
ok ill stick around and see what happens, cheers man
I love volume, but what you have isn't a lot of volume. It's a lot of bullshit. Single leg press? Flies? Lunges? Dude, what are you doing?
Squat, deadlift, push stuff away from you, and pull stuff towards you. Don't worry about variations yet. You need to get stronger in these 4 things. If you need to lose weight, then do everything in your power to get stronger in these 4 things while you lose weight.
Don't worry, most people do what you've done. They stuff a bunch of crap in a program, but that's all it is; crap. Cut out anything that isn't making you stronger.
