I recently started a basic upper body/lower body routine based on compound movements to get a strong, solid base (i’m currently 165 at 5’ 10). Looks like this
Day A (lower body)
Back squat 5x5
Ab wheel roll out AMRAPx5
rope jumping (great calf builders according to Chad Waterbury) 10 mins
Day B (upper body)
Bench press 5x5
Pull ups 5x5
military press (standing) 5x5
Seated cable row 5x5
Every workout is done twice every week for a total of 4 sessions. I`m also doing 2 sessions of interval running (on off days)
I wanted to know what you guys (newbs and especially vets) think about it (exercise selection wise and so on) for a guy trying to build a strong foundation along with some size. Also, Is the volume per exercise, body part, session… OK, considering each workout is performed twice per week? Too low?
Id be very grateful for any advise, comments or critiques.
