I've been training for 4months so I am a newbie.
I am doing total body training. Currently I am trying to design exercises scheme for one of the CW plans.
I would like to follow his advice to choose 2 sets of 6 exercises to train whole body (days A and B).
Here are my initial picks :
Standing calf raises
Seated military presses
Barbell curls (*)
chins (or variations as I am too weak to do many of them)
different kind of squat
one leg calf standing calf raises
Standing military presses (**)
dumbbell curls (***)
Now I have a few questions
a)do you see any better exercises than barbell curls to add to previous five ? I would like to avoid isolation movements but I cant see what I can add instead and training with only 5 is a little to short
b)any idea for other deltoitds compound exercise instead of military presses (standing/seated is not much variety I think).
c)I plan to do ex's in pairs like I wrote them (set of first one, rest, set of second one etc); is there any better way to pair them ?
d)do you see any other ways to improve for these selection of movements (I cant do olimpic lifts and such things because I dont have anybody to teach me proper technique and I believe its too easy to screw up). I would like to incorporate dead lift though but I don't see how to do it properly.
Any help is much appreciated
