Hey folks, im coming from a long brake from lifting and cannot wait to start again but i
What's wrong with that?
I don't see anything wrong with curls as assistance. Its flak's mustard analogy: curls are like mustard; they work good on a sandwich of other stuff, but if you eat a bowl full of mustard you're an idiot.
On Friday, I'd start with squats. Also, I personally don't see much of a point for incline DB bench when you could just do regular BB press or regular BB bench.
That stuff you're doing on thursday is going to limit what you can do for squats on friday. Nothing wrong with this, as long as you take it into account and dial back the intensity as needed. Although it might be better to move the sidebends and ab work to friday, and the upperbody stuff to thursday.
What sort of progression do you plan to use?
You're an idiot
OP, If you're going to have separate speed and conditioning day, I would switch to lifting 3 times a week.
Incline DB Bench
Add in ab work wherever it fits
Even the Prophet Rippetoe, peace be upon him, admits to using Curls in some of his programs. Unless you're doing 20 Sets For Da Gunz, bicep curls are not a deal-breaker.
Ya really, more for the strong elbows and avoiding injuries then for the huge ripped guns though.
Yea im going to start with some incline variety of the bench press since i will be doing alot of push ups over the time, the squat thing might be smart, i will try it out and see if i aint to drained after it, usually after my squat sessions i can barely stand.
Thanks for the comment, i will probly try it both ways and see wich ones i like the most, heavy ab work day before a heavy squat day isnt maby that to smart but i think since the olympic ones are so few rep and explosive that i wont be sore at all and will hopefully manage a squat session the day after, atleast for now untill i progress further and need more rest between.
In the progression i plan to add 5kg to the squat every week if i dont miss a rep and 2,5 to the other lifts, if that is to much i will probably lower it to 2,5kg and 1,25kg every week.
Ye i also thought about something like this, if the other ones puts to much stress one my i will probably switch to a routine like this one, thanks for your comment mate.
This. Lifting four times a week might be a bit much. Especially after a long lay-off.
Ye it might be, i recover quickly though and the long lay off was 12 hour shifts per day in a really hard manual labor job.
