My New Workout Routine


#1

Im brand new to this website but ive been training (terribly) on and off for about 5 years. Never consistently, however I have built a fair amount of muscle due to beginner gains I think, but of course not lots!

I am 21, 170lbs, 6Ft3 Male

I just need advice on a new routine I am starting. I used to go the gym 3 times a week but due to injury I have chosen to purchase a trap bar and a squat stand. With these 2 pieces of equipment I can do:
Trap bar shoulder presses, trap bar bench press, trap bar deadlift, trap bar bent over row. There are probably others but they are the main big lifts I would like to get strong at at home while keeping injury free. Squats cause a problem for me due to poor mobility so as I try to fix that, I would like to replace squats with trap bar deadlifts (which is fair enough for now).

The routine would be like this, a full body 3 x a week consisting of:

monday: trap bar deadlift (not sure how many sets and reps, as I want to do trap bar deadlift 3 x a week and need advice on how to manage it maybe 2x5) , weighted chin up (3x5) , weighted dip (3x5), farmers carry for strength.

Repeat wedensday and friday......

I was just wondering what is the problem with this routine as it seems too simple but I like the sound of it because its so simple! Not sure how to add shoulder presses, bent over rows into the program. As long as I am trap bar deadlifting 3x a week everything is fine. (i want to get the most out of the trap bar because it costs a shit load of money).

Any feedback is appreciated!! Just some help setting a routine up based around trap bar deadlifts, weighted chin ups and dips, farmers carry

Thanks for the reply, Ive read those articles they're very interesting!

I was looking for someone to critique the workout I posted and tell me how they would programme a workout 3x a week based on trap bar deadlifts, weighted chins and dips.

Thanks!
