Workout critique.

Post by Proper Knob » Sat Feb 21, 2009 3:00 am

Whilst i've been away i've been thinking of a new workout to get into when i return to the UK. Just wanted to run it by you guys to see if there's anything glaringly missing or which could be added.

I would say my overall aim is stregnth, i'm not training for anything particular other than for general health and for the sheer enjoyment of it. I'm thinking of a lower, push/pull split merely because i have the time and inclination to get to the gym four nights a week at the moment. After doing a full body workout 3x a week it'll be interesting to see the progress i make from a different structure.

Mon - BB Squats (lightish), Deadlifts, Pallof Press
Tues - BB/DB Bench press, Pullups, Face Pulls
Wed - Off
Thurs - BB Squats (Heavy), Bulgarian Squats, Stability Ball Leg Curls
Fri - Shoulder Press, Bent Over Rows/One arm Rows, One Arm Cable Lateral Raise
Sat & Sun - Off.

The idea is to keep the first two exercises low reps with 3-5 sets and the final exercise high reps.

Any criticism, constructive or abusive is welcome.
