    thuesday push

    flat bench
    military
    close grip bench
    incline DB press
    seated DB press
    skull crushers


    do them all on 5*5. i think im doing to much on my push day....im thinking of removing the db seated press


    thursday pull


    deadlift 5*3
    bent over bb row
    good mornings
    lat pulldown(behind the neck)
    one handed DB row
    barbell shrug



    all on 5*5 exept the deadlifts. here im thinking of removing the lat pulldowns as i already do pullups 2 times a week on the day that i dont life. so it may be too much.




    leg day -saturday




    squat 5*3
    front squat
    SLDL
    calf work (do supersets of standing calfraise machine and seated calf raises)
    leg extensions
    leg curls


    again on a 5*5


    already removed teh leg curls from my regime, and im also thinking about removing the leg extensions and replacing them with somethign else. was thinking bout box sqiuats but my gym doesnt have boxed or someting else to sit on......and tehy dont like the benches to be moves into the power rack or bringing your own equipment.
    i thought about doing the leg press isntead but i stopped doing it for a while coz it always gave me kneew problems afterwards

    you may want to reduce your volume. 5 x5 for 6 movements is a lot!!! do lunges/ 1 leg lunges instead of extensions/leg curls - they rock

    yeah but the thing i do is increase the weight with each set.....so the first set is nowhere so difficult as the last set....the first 4 sets are always weights that i can do for full 5 reps.the last set is wiht a weight that i struggle for 5 reps
