As far as the program I set up for myself, I placed the exercises in a certain order/day according to several things:
First, I wanted to make sure that I was working legs twice a week (one day quad dominant, one day hamstring dominant). Thus, the reason I chose to squat on Monday and Deadlift on Friday. The power cleans also hit the legs and posterior chain on Wed, but not as much as the other days. Also, I’ll rotate exercises on Wed for legs every few weeks (lunges, front squats, etc.).
Second, I wanted to be able to structure my upper body training according to movement patterns. Thus, the reason that I bench and row on Monday (horizontal push/pull) and then do chins and standing overhead presses on Wed (vertical pull/push).
Third, I wanted to hit arms more than once since they’ve been a week point for me. Thus, the reason I do barbell curls on Wed and reverse curls on Fri and the close-grip benches on Fri as well.
Fourth, I wanted to hit abs a few times a week going through the major areas of the core (lower abs - Monday; upper abs - Wed.; Obliques - Fri. - I think that’s how I have it listed!).
Fifth, I wanted to try to work the whole body each day. Thus the reason that I chose all those compound exercises and structured them like I did throughout the week.
So now you know how I came to the particular setup that I did.
Check out SFM by CW. It’s a very good program and structured in a similar fashion (full-body workouts, three times a week).[/quote]
