Will appreciate Your thoughts on this.
I’m 36. Been lifting conciously 4 years, before that it was rather mindless, inconsistent shooting in the dark, except maybe for core strenghtening which i did thoroughly due to my lumbar disc herniation that was bothering me since forever. Altough i menaged to avoid making things worse by eliminating exercises that promotes symptoms (mainly bilateral squats) and concentraiting on core.
2 years ago i had shoulder stabilisation surgery, reason for that was my stupidity - to much weight on dumbbel shoulder press = dislocated shoulder, couple od years earlier (it was fun for a while to imagine you are Mel Gibson i Lethal Weapon)
Right now I’m at first week of below plan. My goal is to bring up my puny chest and arms.
5’8 / 174 cm
Here’s my exact current split. Upper body focus (chest&triceps especially), legs at minimum for time being. @Gym only on saturday, other days @home.
3 working sets in most exercises for chest and triceps (and lower body on saturday), 2 in others. Will add sets in coming two weeks depanding on recovery. After that I’m thinking of rest pause in last set for compund movements and mayo reps for single joint (chest&tric) for three weeks and then deload.
