I just started documenting my workouts starting yesterday and I wanted to post them here as I did them so I could get some helpfull information.

That was mondays workout. My max on bench is 245pounds. Today Tue I am doing back n bi’s and suggestions on that as well?

too much volume, not enough intensity

try to keep overall reps around 25-50 per muscle group, adjust weight accordingly

train your whole body, not just from your waist up

Ya total reps can be tricky. I usually try to split it up between 20ish high intensity reps and then 20ish low intensity reps to really work all the fibers of the muscle not just the big ones.

except deadlift I just do around 40 reps on that with as much as I can do because all the other hammie exercises aren’t that effective in my experience.
