I have been lurking on this site for a couple of months now and decided to pursue weightlifting training. First a little history
I am 18 and about 138 lbs 5’6. I first started training a little over 7 months ago. I started with a calisthenics only program with push/pull split. I was very happy with the results I got from it. I started out not being able to do a single stict pullup and only 5 chin ups. As of right now I am doing muscle ups and 18lb weighted chin ups for reps(4X8). So I have built a decent amount of muscle for a beginner and some strength as well. Although the only problem with this program is that I completely ignored my lower body except for the occasional weekly sprint and pistol squats. Also I feel that my shoulders could use some overhead pressing as well.
Although since finding this site I decided to start training with weights although still keeping dips, pullups, and chins in my routine. I have been doing some research along with reading starting strength and some great articles by Christian Thibaudeau and other great authors. My goal is to build mass as well as get stronger.
So now to the main purpose of my post. I decided to make my own program so here it is
I plan to get 4 sets on each lift and around 8 reps each set
So let me know what you think about it I really want some critique so let me know if it sucks haha and I am not really sure if the order of the exercises is good or whether I grouped exercises together on the rights days. If you guys think I should follow another program let me know. I would like to keep these exercises in my program. Also is bench and dips enough for triceps or do I need to add a exercise and if so which one. So if you do not like the program let me know about a program that would be good for a beginner. I would like to keep things pretty simple. Also I plan on the off days to work on some skill training like handstand, back levers, front levers, etc.
Also a quick note about my nutrition. I feel it is dialed in pretty well. The staple of my diet is a lot of green vegis with every meal and chicken, fish, beef, eggs are my main sources of protein. I use a good amount of coconut oil and for carbs I do not eat bread so I have potatoes, sweet potatoes, nuts, and rice. I eat about 3 or 4 meals a day.
This is a pretty long winded post but I really want some good feedback. Thank You
