I have been reading and using T-Nation as a resource since I started training 7 months ago. I think it's the best site I've come across and despite the fact that I'm a beginner to all of this still, I feel I have learned a lot so far (not a lot about routines I made mine up myself) .
This is my first post and I am looking for some advice on my routine. I train 5 times a week Monday to Friday for 1 hour sessions. So basically I picked two muscles/muscle groups and rotate them throughout the week. I try and choose two muscles/muscles groups that I can sort of isolate from each other. This is how a typical week goes.
I try and do 3 sets of 10 and always lift my maximum weight. If I can't complete the full set I lower the weight accordingly
Monday - Chest/Triceps
Chest - (mostly flat bench and incline bench I am under the impression that as a beginner with a small chest the lower chest will fill out eventually is this correct?)
Flat bench Dumbbells
Tricep cable pushdown sometimes rope sometimes bar
Sitting two arm tricep extension
Tuesday - Shoulders/Biceps
seated dumbell raises
standing hammer curl
Wednesday - Back/legs
Sorry if I'm vague or incorrect with the exercise names I just try exercises that feel good to me that I see other people doing. There is a little more about me in my profile if you're interested along with some pictures and my goals etc. If anyone has any input of what I'm doing right or wrong I would appreciate it. I know what I'm doing is working as I have seen results and again they're posted in my profile but I'm wondering if I'm utilizing my time at the gym properly or if I could be seeing better results with a different approach. My Diet is not the greatest. I eat a lot more than I used to but I'm by no means on a high calorie diet. I do take creatine and protein.
