Push/Pull fans out there? Advice?

  1. Push/Pull fans out there? Advice?


    I've been doing my push/pull routine for awhile now and am contemplating switching it up. I do the below, or a slight variation of the below about 4 days a week:

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ ++++++
    Push

    Dumbbell Bench Press – 3 of 8
    Dips – 3 of 8

    Decline Bench Press – 3 of 8
    Vertical Press (Machine) – 3 of 8

    Overhead Dumbbell Press – 3 of 8
    Tate Press – 3 of 8

    Fly’s (Machine) – 3 of 8
    Shoulder Press (Machine) – 3 of 8

    Pull

    Sitting Arm Curls (Machine) – 3 of 8
    Shoulder Shrugs – 3 of 8

    Standing Dumbbell Curls – 3 of 8
    Single Arm Dumbbell Row – 3 of 8

    Barbell Deadlift – 3 of 8
    Chinups – 3 of 8

    Reverse Fly (Machine) – 3 of 8
    Straight Arm Pulldown (Machine) – 3 of 8
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ ++++++

    The workout has been good to me and the best part about it is it's easy to remember! Any advice on what I may want to swap in or out of it?

    Thanks for the advice!

  6. why dont you do whole muscle groups which pair push/pull?

    Monday: chest/back chest is pushing, back is pulling

    thurs: legs, shoulders

    sat: bi, tri

  7. ^^I agree^^ Try Chest/back...bis/tris...works great supersetting.

  8. Makes sense - thanks for the advice guys!
