Members have been trying to help me out and from what other members are telling me, very well known and good programs. But after I read all of the beginner stuff with things like
Number of exercises per muscle group
then I see the program I am told to use and it goes something like
Dips or Bench Press 2-3 x 6-8
Incline Press, or incline Fly 2 x 10-12
Military Press, Or Hammer Shoulder Press 2-3 x 6-8
Tricep (skull crushers) Extensions or Tricep Pushdowns 2-3 x 10-12
Heavy Abs 3 x 10
Pull-Up 3 sets to failure
Barbell Row 2-3 x 8
EZ-Bar Or Dumbell Curl 1-2 x 10
Squats 2 x 10
Deadlifts, or Stiff-Legged Deadlift 1 x 10
I see that it only has two workouts for back and chest and with a torn ACL, I can only focus on the upper body. The program was also recommended for strength, when I had read before the you should use 4-6 sets to gain strength. Also to try to have 9-12 sets for each muscel group.
Because I dont include leg work I would just have a two day rotation of chest/back and arms/shoulders. I then read its very hard on the CNS to recover two large muscel groups.
Needless to say, I am so confused and just want something to pop up in front of me and tell me all the anwsers before I kill someone. I also probably should have posted it on my other topic, but I am so frustrated someone help.
