Whats up guys. Ive been working out for a couple years now, mostly serious, but came to the realization i was doing everything wrong, from nutrition to sets to repititions.
I have a friend that told me i have sensitive insulin levels which might be the problem why im not able to show improvements over periods of time.
I use to eat carbs all over the place morning, 3 hrs later, again, an again etc. My friend told me to eat carbs only in the morning and post workout, which made more sense. An he also gave me a new routine:
pullups 4 sets till failure
flat bench 4,4,8,10
1 arm db press 4,4,8,10
close grip pulldown 5,5,8,10
wide grip rows 5,5,8,10
3 sets of BB curls diff variations
Db lateeral raises 4x12
incline Db press 5,5,8,10
He said specifically these workouts are for intensity + giving you anough energy after to do cardio in the evening or w/e you want. Before this routine i did ALOT more exercises, which he (my friend) said leads to overtraining.
So again my question is, is this an appropriate workout routine? my goals are to shed fat (got diet in check) and bulk up when ive lost BF. Im just really confused right now about carbs, to rep ranges to how many sets for which goals etc. Any critiques are welcome. thanks alot
