Alright lads, ive been looking at a few different programs (strong lifts, starting strength, and madcows. Ive looked at the 3 of them for ideas and come up with a layout which I think will suit me best.
here it is:
Workout A Workout B
3x5 Trap Bar Deadlift 3x5 Shoulder Press
3x5 Bench Press 3x5 DB Rows
ill also mix in some of the following:
-Forearms / grip training
ill explain why I chose that layout.
Ok, first off, i chose trap bar deadlifts (i know many don’t like the lift) because their a good quad builder and they work the traps indirectly, which is good for me (mr.no traps). and im only gonna do that lift x2 a week, not x3 because i reckon it will wreck my knees. The bench press and overhead presses are a staple in any 3x5 program, so that’s why their there.
and i’ve chosen rows and pull-ups because i enjoy those 2 movements, which i think are good movements. and just because i want to get better at pulling and rowing.
lastly, ill mix in Core work - Forearms/grip training - calves.
i think their beneficial areas which are often neglected. they don’t take up much energy and they can really assist you in other lifts.
Also, i should probably mention that my goal is to gain some size and strength. i’ve chosen the 3x5 system because im bored of body part splits.
Thanks in advance for any reply’s.
