Hi, I’m trying to get stronger, bigger and more athletic for basketball. I’m not trying to be a bodybuilder. I’m trying to increase my athletic ability and strength and gain some muscle.
Since I’m a beginner, I can workout a little more. Will this split be overtraining?
Bench press- 6 sets of 8
Rows- 6 sets of 8
Dumbell curls- 5 sets of 8
tricep pulldown- 5 sets of 8
Dips- 3 sets to failure
pullups- 3 sets to failure
squat- 6 sets of 8
deadlift- 6 sets of 8
Lunges- 5 sets of 8
Calf raises- 5 sets of 15
leg curls(hamstrings)- 3 sets of 8
legcurls(quads)- 3 sets of 8
I will rest 2 minutes between sets
I plan to jog 15 minutes everymorning on an empty stomach to burn fat. And I will play basketball and do pylometrics on my lowerbody days. I will also do HIIT a couple times a week.
Will this be overtraining? If so, will lowering the amount of total sets per workout make a difference?
