Ultimate 3 day full body workout?

  1. Ultimate 3 day full body workout?


    Anyone have a great 3 day full body workout routine? I'll share mine and give me some of your opinions on what may be better, or wrong with my routine.

    Currently, I'm trying to gain about 10-13lbs and eating over maintenance. I perform a timed 1.5 mile run on Tuesday and Thursday for Air Force PT requirements and can usually knock that out in 10mins. After that, i just do abs for a little bit.

    This is what i got so far.

    Push:
    Bench press
    Dips
    Incline dumbbell press
    Overhead Press
    Triceps Extension

    Pull:

    Pull ups
    Rows
    Pull downs
    Dumbbell Row
    Curls

    Legs:

    Squats
    Leg machine
    Lunges
    Hyper extensions
    Calve Raises


  2. How many reps/sets of each exercise are you performing?

  3. Bill Starr 5x5...used it and had some of my best results

  4. You're not doing all of those exercises each day are you? Picking 1, maybe 2 from each body part maximum right?

  5. why would you want to work your whole body in three days?

    I think he may have meant M,W,F, or something similar to that.

    I know I for one am a big fan of full body workouts, esp with alternating rep ranges, 4,6,8, in that order!

    are you talking h.i.t or just working you whole body in one session?

  8. DC style training might fit the bill for ya.
