Does it matter if I do the overhead DB extension standing or seated. I could do it seated on the bench, but I don't have a chair with a back part that doesn't go all the way up to the bottom of my head. Also, does it matter if I do the lat raises in front of the thighs or at the sides?
I didnt know id be so weak at chinups. It seems I can't really do pullups yet. I have to bend my knees to do them. The rack I have isn't really a power rack, it just goes up so you can do squats. In fact once I hit 300 on squats or the bench I'll have to sell my bench and get a real power rack or just goto the gym(which I'll hate).
I woke up today my triceps were a little sore even though I didn't work them yesterday atleast not directly. I did the monday routine
DB rows (2 sets)
BB curl (1 set)
Hammer curls (1 set)
Reverse DB Wrist Curl (1 set)
I didn't do deads yesterday, because my lower back was still slightly sore. Do you think the Also, I was thinking of changing the routine to this
Monday back and biceps
Wednesday Chest and Triceps
This would be an easier schedule for me, because it would better fit into my college schedule.
wow you weren't kidding when you said my quads would hate it. All muscles in my legs are sore. Also I notice on the routine I have there isn't reverse calf raises. I can only do reverse calf raises one leg at a time though if I were to do them, since I don't have a calf black.
I was also wondering if I could do goodmornings instead of sldl, since the good mornings are alittle easier for me.
soooo many working sets
looks like this should be a 3 day program to avoid overtraining
With the current routine, that I am on, will my shin muscles get worked? Before I changed routines I was doing reverse calf raises. one leg at a time though since I dont have a calf block.
Let me be frank - you need to build major mass using compound lifts before you worry about accessory muscles. Once you bench, squat and dead over your body weight, for reps, we can change things up. You need to focus you energy on getting a good base.
I realized after doing the routine, that my legs need at least 3 days to rest between deadlifts and squats. So I was thinking of doing my routine like this:
Day 1: Back and Biceps
Day 2: Chest and Triceps
Day 3 off
Day 4: Shoulders
Day 5: Legs
day 6 off
day 7 off
day 8 off
repeat back to day 1
