Just wondering what your thoughts are on this routine for size. I've gotten great results from this routine after moving from lower reps and lower sets. Also, I used to do tricep pushdowns, curls, etc but they led to burnout on top of all the compound exercises. I find this routine keeps me less overtrained and has minimal overlap of muscle groups.
Monday: Squat/Press (8 sets of 10 reps)
Tuesday: Assisted Pullup (8 sets of 10 reps)
Thursday: Bench (8 sets of 10 reps)
Friday: Deadlift/Shrug (8 sets of 10 reps)
The only isolation I do is abs and calves but only 2 sets because I just want strength in those areas so that my squat and deadlift don't kill me
The real question is, if bigger muscles and lower bodyfat produce a good looking physique (arguably), is it not logical to just hit as many muscle groups as possible at once? Isn't all this detail work unnecessary for so called "symmetry?"
