Hey guys, first time poster here. I’ve got a BB.com account, but figured that, since I’ve not been getting much of a response to a question of mine, I could do worse than coming over here and asking for your opinions.
Ok, so I’ve got issues regarding my low back and shoulders, and this means that the following exercises, for now, are off limits:
[quote]> back squats
This obviously means that basically all weight lifting programs that exist are impossible for me to do. As it is, exercises that I can/need to do are
[quote]> front squats
hand stand push ups (progressions) - [i]replaces press[/i]
inverted rows - [i]allows for more back work[/i]
rear delt flyes
DB farmer walks - [i]for trap imbalances[/i]
front squat shrugs - [i]trap imbalances[/i]
back extensions - [i]lower back problems[/i][/quote]
Ideally I’d like to get them down into 2 sessions, since that would allow me to train multiple times per week, as well use my rowing machine for a good workout - I’m cutting at the moment. I’m keeping it more in the high rep range, to undo a lot of imbalances I’ve got, so it’s not particularly low-rep stuff that I’m looking to do. At the moment, the plan is looking like this:
But I have no idea if that’s a good layout or not. Due to the amount of important exercises that I’ve got to exclude I really feel lost trying to put together a decent program for myself, and I’ve got no idea if it’s any good - the feedback I’ve gotten when asking hasn’t been great, so I figured that posting it here would be better.
Really appreciate any help you can offer, thanks.
