    A few questions regarding routines.


    1. You folks rotate your exercises? Bench 1st one day and then later or last the next occasion?

    Just using Bench press as an example here. I occasionally have to use the bench press much later in a workout because all the areas are in use. I notice there is a significant difference in weight I can move if begin with bench press rather than it is later in the workout and I have done a few other upper body movements in the meantine. Same with seated shoulder press, decline press, etc.


    2. Do you alternate muscle groups in an routine?
    For example I will do a bench, then a tricep(opposite movement direction), then a shoulder movement, then back to a chest set and repeat the previous. Or do you do all chest, then tricep, then shoulders, etc? I fatigue less by allowing a few routines before stressing them again. Tend to use 80% 1RM.


    Pardon it the above is basic. There are too many routines. I went old school with mine as I have it fairly well memorized regarding muscle groups worked.

    Routines all depend on your goals! Push/Pull routines work for some the others will do chest/ bi's and back/ tri's. On here you will find a lot of advice to use proven routines like 5/3/1, 5x5, ect...... So no one routine is "The Best" or order of lifts in a routine! Figure out your goals and find a routine that works along those guidelines and there is a good chance of success!!! Good Luck!!

    for #1. i fukin hate it when i show up and the gym is ballsack packed and i have to wait for the right bench or rack. thats why i go at 7AM m/w/f. its still hella empty so no one is on my squat rack when i wanna curl

    for #2. i do madcows 5x5 and have been for about 5 months straight. its basicly 3 exercises for 5 ramp sets and i leave. if the squat racks are taken, im fuked.

    pick a good proven routine and stay with it instead of switchin **** around too much. and you might wanna experiment with earlier or later times if you can. that way you an fidn a less packed time to go
