Ok I’m pretty new to training (only in my 12th week). At the moment my primary goal is to get bigger across my entire body.
I’ve been doing a three day workout for a while that looked something like this:
I have had some gains but nothing amazing plus I found that I really struggle with deadlifts and squats.
I’m considering getting a training session to have a trainer look at my lifting technique but aside from that I thought focusing on the deadlift,squat and bench by doing them more often in my workout would be a good idea.
I’m also going to work out 4 times a week instead of 3. At the moment I’m thinking Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday
Now I’m having a hard time puting togther a new training plan. My main concerns are
1)If I bench,squat and deadlift a lot what other lifts do I need in order to maintain a balanced physique and not get injured?
2)Is doing all three lifts each training session an overkill? (I’m use pretty low weight; 25-30 kilos with reps in the range of 6 and 3 sets). If yes then what is a better alternative? I’m more than willing to try out different rep/set ranges/weight etc. if you have any ideas!
3)What stretches should I include?
4)I find that I lose a lot of steam due to my weak cardio. I tend to get slightly light headed and my heart rate goes up a lot. I’m including one session of HIIT on my off day. is that enough to make a dent?
