I’m 26 and have trained on and off for a number of years. I’ve just got back into the gym and would appreciate some advice on my routine. I’m currently 220 and carrying too much bodyfat, my goals are to add some solid mass and will be following a Chanko style die6t i.e. 6 good meals a day with plenty of calories.
My programme is as follows: -
Monday - Bench press, incline DB press, shoulder press, up-right row, standing DB shrugs.
Wednesday - Squats, leg press, stiff leg deads, calves to finish.
Friday - Lat pull down, seated row, incline shrugs, DB curls.
For the most part I will be using pyramid sets i.e 3 x 10 reps, first set 50% of max, second set 75% of max, third set max for 10 reps. Is this enough? Should I be doing more worksets? Should I train to failure on my workset?
I really would appreciate any comments from the more experienced guys, thanks in advance!
