I am 5'9" @ 165lbs around 13% BF and 23 years old. I have been training seriously for 6 years. Pretty much the entire time doing a 5 day bodybuilding split.
I want to increase my overall strength and mass, so I have decided it would be necessary to change up my lifting style completely to get a lot stronger. The 5x5 method is appealing to me, so below is what I have compiled for my new routine. Please give me your input:
Day 1 Upper Body: Bench 5x5, BB bent over rows 3x8-12, BB Military press/DB shoulder press 3x8-12
Day 2 Lower Body: Squat 5x5, Leg press 3x8-15, Hamstring Curl 4x6-15
Day 3 OFF
Day 4 Upper Body: Military Press 5x5, Incline DB/BB chest press, 3x8-12, Weighted Pull-Ups or Pulldowns
Day 5 Lower Body: Deadlift 5x5, Leg press 4x8-15, Hamstring Curl 3x6-15, Standing Calf Raises 4x15-25
Day 6 Arms: Traditional Bodybuilding High Volume Arm Training
Day 7 Off
Do deadlifts hit the back enough or should I replace military presses on day 4 with BB bentover rows? I just want to make sure my push and pull are relatively even so my shoulder health stays good, should I throw in some additional rear delt work? Lateral work? please give input. Thanks.
