Im 16 and have been training for about two years now and I have a question.
Im taking a weight lifting class at my school and our weight training coach just has us do full body workout circut training on isolation hammer stregnth machines and has us do push ups and sit ups. This is everyday for 5 days a week.
It is my general consensus from this site that for maximum gains your supposed to take days off to recover and do mostly compound exercises but our coach doesnt work his program in that way.
The current program im on is a 3-4 day a week program.
Day 1 Chest and Tri’s
Day 2 Rest
Day 3 Biceps and Back
Day 4 Rest
Day 5 Legs
Day 6 Rest
Day 7 start over
I was wondering what you guys think i should do.
Should I lift weights twice a day or drop the class or drop the program?
I want to get bigger and stronger and have been seeing the best gains yet in my current program.
Another question i have is should i add an auxiliary muscle day (forearms, abs, core, agility, wrists) in the place of one of my rest days and/or add another muscle group to my leg day.
Also I play lacrosse and primarily train for it, it requires alot of running, and I may or maynot have time to lift after school during the season. What could i do during the season to prevent muscle loss?
Just for anyone who doesnt know lacrosse is the game with sticks and “nets”. So i need lowerbody and core stregnth such as speed and explosiveness but i dont feel i have enough exercises to do to make 2 days so i just do these when i feel like it or remember them.
And no we dont rape people.
