Nice, how is it working for you ? Are you logging too?

Similar to you I just recently started training with this split. For several months I was doing something much simpler while rehabilitating a bad shoulder injury, so I haven’t had enough time to see significant results yet except that progress in terms of my exercises is coming very smoothely.

Seeing and feeling a pump in both your chest and your back simultaneously feels great and inspires me to work harder. Same with working both arm muscles together. I like it a lot.

I keep a personal log, but nothing online.

Yes I understand, I also log all my workouts, have done it all the time I have trained… But its first now i log on the internet… I found out it would be a good ide to get tips for the workouts and maybe get more progress in my traning.

Tomorow Im going to have a shoulder workout, planning to do 4 sets (pyramide) on barbell press, 2 z 10 arnold press( dumbell press with rotasion) , 3x12 side raise (side lateral) , and just 1x15 with the back of the shoulders. That would be a total of 10 sets and i think that problaby would be enough.

And if anybody wounders why my numbers is so strange, like 374 etc … is this becouse i lift in kilo grams (KG) so have to convert to lb and therefor the numbers my seem strange :slight_smile:

Day 4 Saturday

Barbell shoulderpress seated : 10x barbell 10x132 10x154 5x176 10x132

Seated side lateral 27,5 dumbells x 12x3
Reverse pecdec ( rear delts) 2x15 105 (a machine just a number)
Leg rais 3x40
Rotasion machine 3x20

Total set : shoulders 11 , abs 6
about 30 minutes intens workout :slight_smile:
Hadnt tried Barbell press since the summer so that was cool.

Question :
On my chest/back workout i do bench, incline bench, flyes on chest and deadlift , barbell row and chins for the back.

According to the How to Design a Damn Good Programs diagram of the exersice selection. I find bouth chins and barbell rows as the primary exersices for the upper back. The article suggest to use a primaery, a secundary and a auxilary.

According to this i should maybe have changed the chins with lat pulldown. But is this really any big deal? I found bouth deadlift, barbell row and chins as the best back exersices, so is there deal to mess it up ?

link to the article. http://www.T-Nation.com/free_online_article/sports_body_training_performance/how_to_design_a_damn_good_program_part_1

That article is more of a suggestion for people that don’t already know what they’re doing IMO.

Stick with chins for now.

Monday :

Did only have spotter on the 264… though I would get out 4-5 reps on that weight today but no… Should have somebody to train with, training without spotting is not cool.

Dropped the deadlift not because I wanted too, but becouse some teenage girls took allmoust all the plates and loaded on the Leg press… Yee leg press sure is heavy when you only move the weights a couple of inches is what they should hear…
