once per week? Im training 3-4x per week.[/quote]
Yeah, but you mentioned a split. How often do you work each muscle per week?
AH ok! yes, each muscle group once per week. Although the routine i’m using is pretty comprehensive, lots of power moves.
But i see what your saying, i’m going to give myself 1 or 2 more weeks and then i’m going to start a powerbuilding style program.
I’d welcome some more suggestions for programs.
I’m very new but sounds like we are trying to do the same sort of thing. I’m doing similar to you in regards of getting used to the weights before going head long into a program. I’m going to be doing Allpro, it’s 3 days a week with all the compound lifts and a few extras so what I’m doing at the moment is doing the same routine as the program but not worrying about hitting every rep or time between sets ect. I’m working on what my starting point will be basically. I’m not lifting heavy at all by most standards on here but adding weight all the time and lifting what I can without going mad. It’s working and will be starting the program proper in a couple of weeks. Hitting the same muscles 3x a week feels fine, bit of DOMS at the start but they soon went. Think you’d be pleased with the results that come from something like this, I know I am
