Doing it Wrong?

Hi guys first post and all that.

For the past wee while I have been following the German Body Comp. programme as discussed here http://www.T-Nation.com/free_online_article/sports_body_training_performance/lactic_acid_training_for_fat_loss

and had been doing it thus- all exercises for the one body part in circuit fashion i.e
6 Incline Dumbbell Presses at 45-degree angle
Rest 10 seconds, 12 Incline Barbell Presses at 45-degree angle
Rest 10 seconds 25 Incline Dumbbell Press at 30-degree angle
Rest 2 minutes
then the same for back and then legs on legs day then shoulders on shoulder day etc.

however a little bit of further reading has led me to believe I may be getting this arse about face and it should be 6 incline dumbbell presses supersetted with 6 weighted chins, and so on and so forth.

Could a kind soul please shed light on this for me? I expect and deserve any taunts and abuse that is to follow…

Yea…switch programs.

Tbh…I never looked at the article.

I just cant imagine anybody can lift any decent weights on this type of program. If it was alternating bodypart exercises then maybe, but if its 3 exercises in a row of the same bodypart, I would recommend something else.

That’s me personally tho.

You’re doing it right. I read it the same as you.

I just took a peek at the article and you’re doing it correctly.

Thanks for the replies, guys. Would this not generally be considered to be a good program to follow then?

Does it work?

This would keep you in aerobic and fatty oxidative system which is ideal for fat loss, but obviously not for maximal and us maximal lifting
