First off I’d like to say I’m new to T-Nation and this is my first post so bear with me. I read a lot of threads and articles but there is so much information out there it seems so hard to put it all together.
Anyway the reason I’m posting is I need routine help. So before I go further here?s the routine.
squat 1x12 1x10 1x8 1x15 (each set I add more weight until the last set which is a cool down)
deadlift 1x12 1x10 1x8 1x15 (same weight scheme as squat)
By this time I get really tired so I go swim for an hour.
tricep cable pulldowns 3x8
overhead press 3x8
calfpress of leg press machine 3x8
Anyway my problem is that this workout seems to make my muscles really tired to the point where I feel that I’m not lifting the weight that I could if I broke things apart a little.
I’ve been doing this routine for about 5 weeks now and I’ve gone from 122lb to 140lb. Although I’ve made some pretty nice gains I feel that its time to get a more serious routine.
So anyone?s help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Oh yea I?m eating a lot so don?t worry about that. I?m not crying about being a hard gainer.
