I’ve just started training using the workout below and would be grateful for any comments and advice on my workout.
I’m 30, slim and new to weight training. My goals are to increase strength and size.
Using 5 reps and 3 sets.
1 Arm Dumbbell Bench Press
2 Arm Dumbbell Push Press
Not bad, I think you would be better doing 5x5. Not all sets need to be the same weight. Also I would like to see some rows in there. Perhaps drop the deadlifts back to once a week and substitute rows. To see what a 5x5 program similar to this would look like, check out
You’re not too far off from me, I started out as a very skinny 31 year old. Gained over ten kilos in four months so… it’s possisble.
Like others I’ve found that doing squats and deadlifts on separate days works better. It let me put more effort into those big exercises. Doing both I’d always end up drained and have to drop the weight on the last few sets on the second one.
Since nobody’s mentioned diet - how much are you eating? Make sure it’s enough to gain size. I have to stuff myself seven times a day.
