  1. critique my workout

    Hey, just wondering what you guys think of my workout and if you would alter it in any way

    goal: build size and strength

    usually end each workout with swimming or cardio also
    core randomly peppered in

    one arm rows 2x8 each arm
    leg exstentions 1x8
    leg curls 1x8
    calf's 1x8

    i've had great progress doing this routine and i'm stronger then i've ever been...but like all things in life after a while you grow bored of the same old routine....was thinking of doing the 30 day challenge of the solitary fitness routine and see how that goes, also, it's enticing due to the push up aspects of it preparing for boot as the workout i have no is geared towards just primarily strength and size, which doesn't matter their.

  2. If this has been working for you I wouldn't change it. What other types of routines have you followed in the past?

  3. i've done anything from routines similar to strong lifts/5x5's, to pyramiding similar lifts in sets such as 10, 8, 8, 6, to high intensity lifting maintaining a certain weight and not changing it but increasing the amounts of lifts able to perform within 60 seconds...and things similar to all of those

  4. I agree with the above post If it's working and your stronger than ever I'd stick with it if your bored change the.days you hit each body part if you have something lagging behind hit that on on Monday instead while your energy is at it's highest, I like doing legs on Monday so I don't have to wait in line for j bench since every Monday is national chest lol
