Help Improving My Routine

This is currently my routine:

Monday:
Squats - 3x10
Decline DB Press - 3x10
Pull-ups - 3x10

Thursday:
Deadlifts - 3x10
Military Press - 3x10
Pullups - 3x10

I do pullups twice a week becuase they work the biceps and upper back correct?

I am also starting on Fish Oil, Creatine, Whey, and BCAAs, and raising the weight and lowering the rest time every week.

what are your goals?

To add mass and look ripped lol

up

Is that even enough exercises for a full body workout??

He gets little pectoral stimulation on thursday… but, basically, yeah.

What should I add thursday?

And after reading a little should i maybe add dips and rows?

any particular reason why you are only lifting twice a week?

Well I adopted this from Waterburys 10x3, and he only has twice a week, so idk i figured it had something to do with recovery from so many sets?

3 days a week will serve you much better

Read:

and put it into practise, you will grow much faster.

basically unless u have specific time constraints or previous injuries or something i would say to work out more often in general especially as a beginner

also i believe uve mis-written ur routine

by convention 3x10 means 3 sets of 10 reps

10x3 is what Waterbury talks about which is 10 sets of 3 reps

also im not sure which Waterbury routine ur referencing that only has u lift twice a week.

u are obviously a beginner and as such should at this point just use a pre-deisgned routine on here before u start to design ur own.

must reads are TC’s Two part series for beginners and his two part series for “designing a damn good program” those should give u pretty helpful guidelines in designing ur own programs but for now i would just check out some pre-fab ones… TC and Waterbury have routines that are effective and easy to understand and u should be able to find spread sheets on here as well

He’s talking about this: http://www.T-Nation.com/readArticle.do?id=795366&cr=

presumably.

It’s for fat loss. It’s assumed one is on a caloric defecit. The OP will no doubt seriously fuck up the program. He already removed the second lower body exercise which is there for a damned good reason and he’s incorrectly doing pullups twice a week.

Just so I make myself clear: Novitennis88’s program is fucked.

Ok then where is Waterbury’s 10x3 program thats NOT for fat loss? I couldnt find it
