After reading through the amazing articles on this website, I have learned so much, and have also realized how much of a beginner I am, regardless of the size of my muscles. I am in the middle of developing an new routine that will stomp my muscles, I don't want to leave any muscle fiber neglected. I have two simple questions for now to ask:
- My old routine consisted of 3x8-10 workouts. Every set would be until failure, and I would do three of them, and be done. Recently, i have changed the last set to drop sets to make sure I really get those fibers owned. Is this ok? How can I improve? I read somewhere on this site that its best to start out doing lighter weights to warm up, then the middle set should be the most weight, and the lest # of reps.
From my mentality, I just want to lift s heavy, and as hard as possible, make sure every set is between 8-9 reps for optimal size gains.
- For the second one, My new routine will be split up mainly between three days, the fourth will be HIIT, mobility drills, abs, and working out my rotator cuff (someone recommended it on this forum) Anyways, Say for Monday I want to do Chest, Back, and shoulders.
Would Chest, Triceps, Shoulders be better since when working the chest, your triceps get worked as well? Same goes for the back & biceps. I was simply going to do Isolation workouts specifically for the biceps and triceps on Wednesday. This way every muscle is fully worked.
