    Sorry, I had to make a thread about this althought its been repetitive.

    The search function wouldnt accept the word "set" and the internet lifting is consisted Bodybuilding routines.

    I would like to know the recommended range of sets for repetition of 4, 5, 6 seperately.

    Not only that if you are so kind I would like a critique for my routine pretty simple.

    Monday
    Front Pulldown
    Wood chops
    Dips
    DB press.
    Shoulder press


    Wednesday
    Straight-leg Deadlift
    Seated Row
    Hanging Knee Raises
    DB Decline
    Medicine ball sit ups


    Friday
    Incline press
    Pull ups
    Military press
    Box Squats
    Close grip bench

    Here, I will make a template for a full body workout for everyone:
    Pressing Movement
    Squating movement
    Deadlift/posterior chain movement
    Upper Back movement
    Ab/core movement

    I personally prefer 2-3 sets and 1-5 reps on the big 3 and variants, 6-8 reps for everything else.

    awesome.

    How do you feel about Full body workouts?

    I used to do split workouts but working out the muscles only once a week didnt seem to workout well.

    full body workouts are great. this is the template i usually use:

    pull
    squat
    press
    row
    3-5 working sets each with 1-6 reps.

    if you participate in a sport where strength gains are made in and out of the gym, these routines are particularly effective.
