I'm doing a push-pull routine. I'm getting married in May and my main goal right now is a beach body for the honeymoon in St. Lucia. I work out Mon, Tues, Thur, Fri - with the push on mon/thur and the pull on tues/thur. Please give me some feedback on the overall routine.
225x6-8 (usually failure)
Dumbell Shoulder Press
Calves on Leg Press
12x 2 plates on each side
12x 3 plates on each side
12x 4 plates on each side
Hammer Strength Machine Incline
8x45 on each side
8x70 on each side
3 sets to failure
3 sets of 8, unsure of weights, partner usually chooses, but third set is hard to finish
Deadlift (Just started last week)
Rear Dumbell Fly
2 sets of the heaviest weight i can handle
80-90xwhatever is left in the tank
A little background:
I played soccer all my life and was a sprinter in high school. I was the only soccer player who lifted weights so back then I was 165 lbs lifting what I lift now with a measured 5% BF. I went to college, gained weight, and now am around 190ish lbs. I carry probably 10-15 lbs of excess fat on my torso (mainly stomach, some chest). I'm working on bulking up now before I start to really do some serious cardio and cut back the calories about 2 months before the wedding.
My partner and I have jobs which are not conducive to lifting right now, so we probably average 3/4 workouts a week.
My diet is not the best right now (my job sucks - most days I go in at 6-7am and don't eat a regular lunch until well after 2) but it's probably better than most average peoples. Heavy on protein (i love meat), low on cards, and I'm not a sweets person.
That said, I know I'm not at the serious level most of you are, but I was looking for some critique of the routine.
We've been doing it about 2 months now. MY muscles are slightly bigger and much denser and I've maintained the same weight so I know I've lost some fat even if its not totally visible on my beergut.
Thanks in advance guys.
