I've just started lifting and need some help in designing a program. I'm 27 and weigh about 165. I've never lifted weights before but I practice brazilian jiu-jitsu and want to get stronger and in better condition. Here is the program I'm thinking of trying out:
Monday, Wednesday, Friday
bench Press 5x5
standing Military Press 5x5
Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday,
For the weight routines would it be better to swap dips for the bench?
Also any general feed back or recommendations would be appreciated.
Thanks for your time,
