Strength routing...

  1. Strength routing...


    I am looking to start a strength training routing this year. I have been lifting for over 14 years but feel I a change is needed and more strength is my goal.

    I have read some and to start off I am thinking this as a rough draft for my routine:

    Monday

    cardio to warmup
    Bench Press 3x5
    Squat 3x5
    Deadlift 3x5
    Dips 3x5

    Tuesday:

    cardio
    ????

    Wednesday:

    cardio to warmup
    Shoulder Press - military
    Bent over rows
    chin ups
    lat pull downs

    Thursday:

    cardio
    ????

    Friday:

    cardio to warmup
    Bench Press
    Squat
    Dead Lift

    Everything is basd off the starting strength type routing I have read(riptoe?). I would like any suggestions and advice to make it better if needed as well as a help filling in the ????.

    you are better off leaving the ???? as cardio only, and go all out to failure on the other days. There is no point in overdoing it, or spending much time working on the small muscles if strength is your goal
