So I plan on starting a upper/lower body split that looks like this.
Bent Over Row
Leg raises & Weighted Pull Downs
Reverse Crunches & Weighted Decline sit-ups
5x5 set/rep scheme except on squats which I’ll do a lot more of to try and perfect the lift. I think I’ll aim for around 50 reps a session.
I plan on pairing, alternating between sets, bench & rows, MP and Pull ups, and my arm exercises.
I’m pretty weak. I cant do a single Pull-up on my own. Would it be better for me to do Pull-ups using an assist machine or to do negatives?
Other then that does this look ok for a beginner? I just recently started training for strength and mass I’ve put on about 10 pounds in the span of about three months. I think about a little less then 5 of it is muscle so my gains havnt been that clean due to bad eating. I plan on cutting back for a month or two and then focusing on doing a clean bulk. With school being out I’ll be able to watch what I eat and plan my meals out with a lot more discipline then before.
I havnt really had a solid routine because I’ve been just trying out various things to find out what I really want to stick to.
I’ve also been practicing my lifts and I can squat and bench pretty well but I have room for improvement.
