I am hitting the gym 5 days a week. I lift for an hour everyday on my lunch break. i lift with a partner everyday and we typically have a 90-180 second rest between sets. Because of the time constraint we do Chest, Back, Shoulders, Chest, Legs (M,T,W,TH,F). All compound movements.
Shoulders have some isolation at the end and 2nd chest day (my sore spot) has a little isolation at the end. Because I want to hit each part of the arm hard and directly, I have to do it at a different time of the day. And it allows me to really trash them.
As stated above, mostly all our sets are big compound (we move the rep range around every couple weeks). I have no interest in showing, my goal is my avatar, and my life and family don't get re-organized. I re-organize around THEM.
Not just starting out....I am just starting to diet (clean) and track calories right though.
