/fit/ I have a question. I'm not following any specific routine and just doing the same thing every workout 3 times a week. My question is how sub-optimal is my "routine" instead of just doing one of the more popular ones like SS or SL.
Bench press 3x8
Pendlay rows 3x12
Assisted Pull-ups 5x12-15
(In exactly this order every time)
So what do I need to adjust? Because it feels like something isn't right. At the same time, SS has too few exercises which is the reason I added accessories.
I'm new to lifting, 3 months in and have made decent gains, but maybe the gains could be better if I adjusted my workout a bit.
Nothing wrong with this routine but you need to change it up some. no doubt someone will say three times a week is BS, but unless you are a body builder looking for massive ammounts of useless muscle you don't need bodypart isolation splits that take 2 hours six days a week. Try doing your routine on Day 1, then on Day two Swap out some of the movements. Bench press for an incline DB press, Squats for a sled press, not sure what style Press you are doing, but swap out for an alternate and add an upright row. DB snatch for the Deadlift. Pendlay rows for australian pushups. Then do a different set of movement on day three. Repeat for a month and then switch it up again.
So you changed a proven program because you felt it didn't have enough variety?
Do SS, faggot. Add chin ups/curls and dips after a few months.
Acquire all novice gains, then alter your programming to suit your needs. You're a weak faggot with no reason to run any other program.
You're only giving your muscles a day to rest aftering taxing every possible muscle in your body. Are you on roids or just plain retarded? Unless the load is light, medium, then heavy on the final day I'm guessing you rewally don't know what you're doing
try this one OP. It's simple and well rounded. You need to split muscle groups up onto different days
I'm new to all of this, I've never done any sort of serious physical activity and I became skinnyfat in the last few years, and I'm trying to change that
I'm 20, small frame - I don't want to build any muscle for now, I just want to be slim again (lose the bit of belly and titties), I guess I'd have to lose 3-4 kilos?
This is the routine the guys at the gym gave me, can you tell me if it's any good?
>15 minute cardio (I usually run, not for the entire duration but I'm working on it)
Z15 chest press
>15 shoulder press
>15 leg curl
>15 leg extension
>(These five are in a circuit that I repeat 3 times, for a total of 45 each)
>15 minute cardio again
I've been doing it for two months, but I'm not noticing any changes...
Had you read SS, you would have seen the 70 fucking pages of assistance exercises Rip included in the fucking book, you faggot.
We gave you advice, you disregarded it, and now you're a faggot. See what you did?
Incline Dumbbell press
Tricep cable push downs
Seated cable rows
