I don’t understand why people always regiment their workout plan so exact with every exercise they’re going to do planned out, just makes things complicated. What are you going to do when your legs are all DOMS from the 1st week of back to back Squats, RDLs, Squats?
I can tell you he won’t be getting DOMS after the first week if he follows a routine of that frequency. The only time I (or anyone I know) gets DOMS is when a new exercise is tried, or when doing an exercise less than twice a week/three times every 2 weeks, such as in a typical BB split.
Also if you don’t plan out your exercises then how do you ensure constant progression? There’s a lot of hate around this site for proper programming, as if somehow it doesn’t make a difference. I can understand planning to do 5*5 on back squats and then picking accessory work based on how you feel, I don’t understand how someone can go to the gym and think “I may do squats today”
EDIT: Just want to be clear that I don’t think the routine posted is “good”. I think someone mentioned an upper/lower split, which is probably the way to go, with a focus on a few key exercises.
