    Close Grip Bench - 5 Sets / 5 Reps
    Seated Dips - 5 Sets / 5 Reps
    Pushdowns - 5 Sets / 5 Reps

    Abs/Off (Sunday)


    *I like to hit arms twice a week, that is why Tuesday is just a small arm workout with abs.

    If you have any suggestions, let me know.


  2. Probably too much, I did 5x5(max out on the 5th) for a few months and could only do a few different exercise's. Probably need another day off as well

  3. If you can do all that for more than 2 weeks you really need to up the weights for bench and squats. And you really need to add in deadlifts.
    True story:

    I give a f**K!!
