    another rate my routine


    i know there are alot of these in here but i figured i would post my routine and introduce myself at the same time as i have been lurking here for a while. my name is nat and i have been working out since i was 14 but recently after graduating i have slowed down from drinking and partying all the time, i now have decided to get back to working out. so here is my routine.
    Back/Bis
    Deadlifts 4x6-10
    Barbell rows 4x8-12
    One arm dumbbell rows 3x10-12
    Good mornings 3x8-10

    Barbell curls 4x8-10
    Alternate dumbbell curls 3x10-12
    Cable hammer curls 3x10-12

    Sit ups 4x15-20
    Side crunch 2x12-15

    Chest/Shoulders/Tris
    Floor press 4x8-10
    Decline bench press 3x10-12
    Incline dumbbell press 3x10-12

    Alternating dumbbell press 4x8-10
    L laterals 3x10-12
    Cuban rotation(for rotator cuffs) 3x12-15
    Shrugs 3x8-10

    French press 4x8-10
    Close grip bench press 3x10-12
    Cable press downs 3x10-12

    Legs/Calves
    Box squats 4x8-10
    Leg press 3x10-12
    Leg extensions 3x12-14
    Leg curls 3x10-12

    Standing calve raises 4x10-12
    Seated calve raises 3x12-15
    One legged calve raises 2x10-12

    i used to used a lower rep routine but a couple years back when i started out i used a higher rep scheme and thats when i seemed to grow best(even thought i was grossly overtraining) so i figured i would try it out again.

    Cut out BB rows or one arm DB rows and put in pull ups IMO.

    Is the Alternation DB press for chest I assume, or sholders. If its for chest, I'd say put in a nother sholder exercise (Military press maybe) and cut out one of the chest exercises

    I suggest cutting a set or 2 from the total calf work. Other then that it looks good.




    Good luck

    i find that after i have done bb rows that one arm db rows will hit the lats alot harder and pull ups or pull downs dont work as well for me, but i will try to switch it up for some variety

    the alternate db press is for shoulders not chest

    the one legged calve raises are optional if i dont think my calves have been worked evenly or enough and is only bodyweight
