I need some help....ideas....anything.

I am getting kinda bored with the routine. I am in the 5th week even though I already wrote up week 6. Posted below is the training logs for weeks 1 through 6.



There is 20 min of CARDIO after every session and an additional 20 min of CARDIO On Tue, Wed & Friday morning before work.

I assume your goals are aesthetics/hypertrophy...? Why no BB squats or deadlifts?

If you're bored, do something different. Just looking at that routine is boring me, lol. I used to do something similar though and while very repetitive, it worked for hypertrophy.

You could try an upper/lower split 4 days per week. You could try using more compound movements and less isolation movements, or even only compound movements. The benefit of this is that you spend less time "grinding" out 24 sets of the same old exercises for two hours on arm day. Anyone would get bored with that, unless you are training for a bodybuilding show. You could do 5x5, 6x6, less volume higher intensity.

There are lots of possibilities. I would just pick something and try it out. If it sucks, or if you don't see progress, do something different. It is ok to not do the most optimal routine all the time. Or to put it another way, the most optimal routine is the one you're not currently doing.

One routine I have wanted to try in the past few years, but haven't is Bill Kazmeier's powerbuilding routine.

Hit the gym 5-7 days a week, train only compounds and aim for pain and PRs, not %.

Crush it, dont think. Do.

Why dont you post up what your goals are, current weights used on the big compund lifts (Squat, Deads, BP, OHP) so that the members can see where you are currently and then perhaps we could recommend some routines that are suitable/appropriate to your level of experience and goals.

If you're bored start training for yourself. You know what progressive resistance is. You know what the best exercises are. Make a workout that doesn't bore you using these tools.
