Anyways I was just after some opinions on a basic workout split routine over to seperate days a week I have started doing, It consists of:
3 sets wide grip incline bench
3 sets wide grip flat bench
4 sets conventional deadlift
5 sets inverted rows
3 sets bicep dumbell curls[/quote]
Even without knowing how many reps you’re doing or how often you’re doing these workouts each week, I can tell you it sucks, just like the other guys have said. There’s no rhyme or reason to it that I can figure. I guess technically it’s better than not training at all, since you’re at least trying to include deadlifts, but it’s really, really just not a good looking routine.
As was said, riding a bike for long distances (or even short distances) is absolutely positively not enough work for your legs. Your profile says you’re 6’1" and 140 pounds. Bud, you have [u][b]no[/b][/u] “strongest bodyparts.”
I know being skinny with abs is the “in thing” for kids your age, but believe me that in the long run, it’ll only be a good thing if you focus on building muscle and strength ASAP.
Starting tomorrow, do this:
Mon, Wed, and Fri
Squat 2x15 (No weight, keep both feet flat on the floor.)
Push-up 2x15 (On your toes, go until the chest almost touches the floor.)
Lunge 2x15 (Alternate legs, 1 rep left/1 rep right.)
Neutral-grip pull-up 2x15 (assisted if necessary. Could be substituted with inverted rows.)
Plank 2x15-count (Hold the top part of a push-up, on the toes, arms straight, keep the whole body straight. Count to 15.)
Burpee/squat thrust 2x15
As soon as that workout becomes easy from start to finish, then you should get on a well-designed lifting routine, but definitely not some plan you try to create yourself.
