I come from a powerlifting background, and now due to health issues, I've decided to drop weight, drop the juice, and put some more focus on aesthetics.
Beforehand, I must admit this isn't purely a bodybuilding routine. There's still some very high intensity/low volume, and power work included. I don't want to completely drop the habit, thrill and rewarding feel of heavy poundages
Having said that, here's what I'm looking at;
Flat Bench: No lower than triples, but no higher than 5's. Max estimated volume here will be 5x5, if the weight is light enough to allow it.
Weighted Dips: 3x8
Incline Flyes: 3x12-15
Deadlift: Ramp up to one top set. It's usually triples or under, but sometimes I might throw a curve ball and do some higher rep work.
NG Cable Pulldowns: 3x8
Standing DB Curls: 3x12
Legs & Shoulders:
Hang Clean: No higher than 5's. Occasionally I will go for a 1RM power clean instead
Standing Military Press: 3x5-8
Seated NG DB Press: 3x8-12
Seated DB Lateral Raises: 3x12-15
Back Squat: 3x8-12
Front Squat: 3x3
No direct tricep work because they get worked on enough from pressing movements. Lots of shoulder work because I have absolutely no shoulder width and medial delts
