Another problem I see is I have to doubt how much intensity you can truely have by the time you get to the last few sets of last couple of exercises.
Im going to monitor this. By intensity I presume you mean the shut up and move the weight fire that ignites when walking into the gym? Just want to be clear on my terms.
If you were to suggest ditching a press what would it be? Incline or decline, and if you could explain why that would help as well. Thanks.
Alternate them,one day do incline and decline,the next time do flat bench and decline. This is kind of what I do.Something as simple as changing from decline to incline or whatever can make it a completely different animal.
When I say intensity I’m talking about the amount of weight you can move and how fatigued you are. I can’t believe your working out with anywhere near the same intensity on your 9th set of pressing(whether it be flat bench,close grip,decline or whatever)as you were on your first 3 or 4. If your trying to really pump the blood into that area then there are more effective less damaging ways to do this.
Well I wont lie, among many other aspects of this sport, there is still a lot I have to learn about routine planning. Is there a recomended article here on the site the covers the guidelines??
As per an earlier reply (sorry I dont remember your SN!!) I read the ABBH program and that sounds brutal!! and I mean that in the best sense of the word.
I’d give ABBH a try. After all, more of your muscle is in your legs. Why would you want to do 2x the upper body work vs. lower body work, especially if you’re not sure what you are doing?
