Hi there, inspired by other training plans, I decided to make an "ultimate" workout, optimal for my personal needs. I would like to know your opinion about it. The principle is to perform one compound exercise with heavy load, another one with less sets and two exercises for smaller muscle groups.
I have been training legs (mostly squats and deadlifts) for a while, and I am quite satisfied with my lower body. Now I want to concentrate on the upper body, so I train only deadlifts and thrusters, each once a week.
I am 17 now and have been training for something over a year. Do you think this routine would be good for size? I am finishing the first month of TBT and the second one looks kinda too light to me. Do you reckon I should finish the whole TBT first? The thing is that I have a lot of time now during holidays, so a heavier and more frequent routine would be more suitable for me. I could finish TBT after this one, maybe.
Session 1 (upper body pulling + hams)
snatch grip deadlift on a platform (8 sets of 5 reps)
weighted chin-ups with narrow grip (4x5)
T-bar rows (4x8)
preacher curls (3x10)
Session 2 (upper body pushing + calves + abs)
Flat BB Benchpress (8x5)
Military Press (4x5)
standing calve raises + abs(4x8) (supersets)
Session 3 (upper body pulling)
BB shrugs (4x5)
Face Pulls (3x10)
BB bicep curls (4x8)
Session 4 (upper body pushing + legs)
DB decline Benchpress (4x5)
DB shoulder press (3x10)
triceps pressdown (4x8)
I would probably do this as follows
I mainly would like bigger lats, shoulders, biceps and traps (I feel they are kinda lagging). Do you think this would be a suitable routine for me? Should I add more leg work anyway?
Thank you for your opinions.
