I currently have about 225lbs on my 6’6 frame, but for my legs and arms I should probably weigh around 240.
My limbs are weak and small compared to my torso, for example my bench is about bodyweight but I cannot perform a single dip! Likewise my deadlift is about 1.5x my bodyweight, but can’t do a single pullup.
I’m hoping to increase muscle mass in my limbs, work up to unassisted dips/pullups and maintain my torso. So I’ve put together a program, it’s basically a cross between supersquats and an arm specialization program.
1x20 squats (+5 lbs from thursday)
Work up to max dip
Work up to max pullup
3x8 reverse-grip narrow bench
3x8 concentration curl
3x8 pulldown narrow grip
3x8 db triceps extension
Same as Monday, adding 5lbs to squat
3x8 narrow bench (normal grip)
3x8 wide grip bb curl
3x8 wide grip bb row (overhand grip)
3x8 tate triceps press
Wed/Sat/Sun off-days. Does this program make sense or will I burn out like a supernova? The original supersquat program has three weekly sessions so I’m basically substituting one for 2 arm spec/torso maintenance sessions.
I’ll try to do this for 6-8weeks, eating 4000-5000kcals a day. What are my chances to succeed? Any suggestions for improvement?
