Ok, I just got into working out after a year off a couple months ago. I did a 4 week intro routine and I just finished up a 8 wk routine that had a major focus in upper body, especially the arms. Since I am only able to go to the gym 2 days a week because of my work, here is how my routine looked over the past 8 weeks:
One-arm Preacher Curls
Seated Alternate Incline Dumbell Curls
Dumbell Concentration Curls
Standing One-arm Overhead Cable Curls
Pec Fly (using a pec deck machine)
Seated Cable Rows
I did that Tuesdays and Saturdays, 3 sets on each exercise. I spent a lot of time wakeboarding on the river and lake, so having some toned arms was a must. I did random leg exercises on those days in order to work my legs. I am 5?11? 155 lbs will little body fat. So now that I have a start on getting my arms into shape, I found this new 8 week program in the new Fitness RX mag. Here is the program:
Seated Dumbell Shoulder Press
Seated Front Raises
Rear Bent-Over Deltoid Raises
Pull Ups (Wide Grip)
Wide Grip Lat Pulldown
One-Arm Dumbell Bent-Over Rows
These are all done in supersets, with 4 sets to each exercise. So basically, I do Seated Dumbell Shoulder Press then the Pull Up. Rest then do 3 more sets. I do this until I am done all the exercises. I will add in some leg exercises as well. My main concern is will my arms and chest be getting enough of a workout? Should I be adding in some chest and arm exercises? I will be doing this routine 2 times a week for 8 weeks.
Thanx for the input.
