    Can you take a look at my training plan?


    Hi,

    I have always put my own training plans together, using the web for a source of advice/inspiration.

    I'm hoping someone can give me some constructive criticism on mine, I am looking to maintain muscle mass, hopefully build some strength and burn some fat off while getting my cardio fitness up because I want to compete in mountain bike racing this summer.

    My diet is slightly under maintenance and pretty well sorted I think. I was going to cut more drastically but it turns out im not as fat as I though I might be!


    I don't use a gym, I have a bench, Olympic dumbbells & barbell + a pull-up bar in my house.

    Mon Am: Bodyweight circuits (pushups, squat jumps, core exercises etc)(20-30mins)

    Mon Pm: Warmup Bench Press 25reps
    Heavier Bench Press 10-15 reps
    Heavy Bench Press 5 x 5
    Weighted Crunches 3 x 10
    Heavy Incline Dumbbell Press 5 x 5
    Russian Twists 3 x 10
    Heavy Pec Fly 5 x 5 (or 3 x 10)

    Tue Am: Rest

    Tue Pm: 40 mins sprint cycling

    Wed Am: Rest or 20 mins HIIT (running - depends how my legs feel after the cycleing)

    Wed Pm: Warmup Dumbbell Curls 2 x 15 lightweight
    Pull ups 4 sets to failure
    Barbell Curl 3 x 10
    Barbell Row 3 x 10
    Reverse Dumbbell Fly 3 x 10
    One arm dumbell row 3 x 10

    Thur Am: 30 mins fasted cardio

    Thur Pm: Alternate weeks either:

    Deadlift 3 warmup sets getting heavier
    Deadlift heavy 5x5

    Or

    Dumbell Squats 3 warmup
    Dumbell Squats heavy 5x5

    Cant do barbell squats as I got no squat rack and my housemate can't pass me a loaded up bar and stick it on my back so i load up an olympic dumbell with plates and lift it by putting my forearms under one of the plates with the grip of the dumbbell hanging vertically (you know what I mean?) is there a better way to do this?

    Fri Am: Rest

    Fri Pm: Bodyweight circuits (20-30 mins)

    Weekend: Long distance mountain biking (a love of mine)

    Well done for getting this far - I wrote a novel by mistake !!! Any improvements you can suggest very welcome

    instead of squatting like that dry just doing db squats. And your routine looks quite good but i would lower the volume and add in some shoulder and tricep work. Also on training days do your cardio on the afternoon and training in the morning. Try doing a push pull legs routine as it is good and its easy to put your exercises in it. I'l give you a sample routine if you want.
