You forgot the kitchen sink!

Listen, why don’t you concentrate on three, maybe four different exercises per workout.

I’ll answer as if you asking me that, and that’s bc I’d get bored shitless with it. Ya gotta have fun when you are going to the gym, otherwise you (well I would) lose motivation.

Ya got the right lifts in there, and I don’t believe you’d be wasting your time at all with a routine like that, being you said you are a beginner for one.

Also, what would be the set/rep parameters?

sorry forgot to add that they are for different days. Just gonna switch between them each day. I’ve been goin to the gym for about 2 months now. As far as sets/reps go I don’t really have a plan or know what I should do. I mostly do 3x10 and a little bit of 5x5 and 8x3. Mostly going for strength but want to get big also. Any help with sets/reps or parameters would be appreciated. thanks guys

There’s a little bit of a delay, but only because all messages (from everyone on the forum) come past a live moderator before being posted.

It’s usually no more than a minute or so…maybe more during peak times. But anyway, yes…there’s usually a little delay.

I’ve posted this before for beginners:

5x5
Monday

Squat
Bench
Bent over row

Wednesday

Squat
Push Press
Deadlift

Friday

Squat
Bench
Bent over row

Simnple and effective, cut out the isolation work for beginners.

So do pull-ups instead of bent rows on one of those days.

Boring or not, simple workouts can be very effective given that a trainee busts their ass during the workout, eats adequately to grow and sleeps/rests enough to recover.

If you like doing pullups just make sure to balance them with rows. They move the shoulder in a different way although they both involve scapular retraction.

No wonder people get confused about their workouts on this site. Every other thread tells newbies to basically ONLY do deadlifts and squats, now on this one such workouts are “boring.”

I love that he mentioned that iso work for beginners is unnecessary, where the fuck did that idea get started? Why can’t they do both compound and iso exercises? If you are a newbie are you on some sort of clock that requires you have to be out of the gym in less than 30 minutes? I think they might possibly have the time and ability to perform both.

I do think a routine like that would be boring, but that’s just my opinion, everyone is entitled to there own. If you aren’t having fun going to the gym, then soon you’re not going to go anymore.
