I don't understand--I am simply looking to get stronger and bigger, but isn't that most of what I'd be doing anyway if I was looking to compete?
My bad, I forgot to give some of the details of the routine, I meant ME Upper as both the day and the first exercise.
I was planning to:
switch around between: Bench, Bench with Cambered Bar, Incline Bench, Floor Press
Work up to a 1RM then drop down to do 3 to 5 sets of 5.
You seem to suggest against the 1RM, any particular reason?
Same here, I was planning to:
Switch between: Box Squat, Deadlift, Front Squat, Sumo Deadlift, Zercher Squat
work up to 1RM and drop down to do 3 to 5 sets of 3
Should I try good morning too? I'm honestly wary about doing a max on it because I fear what failure could mean for my back.
On that note any comments on the upper back work? It's always been a weak point for me, too.
Friday is another Upper Body day. I start with Isometrics on the bench then throw in some shoulder and back work.
I have windshield wipers for that one day and I'm thinking for the other day: standing cable crunches 5x10, ab wheel 4x15 and weighted crunches 3x15
Would that be enough variation?
