Hey, I was hoping you guys could glance over my routine real quick. I know there's another thread on the front page with a routine review, but I can't read German haha. I'm 6', 195, primarily looking to lose fat right now and am going to be lifting mostly to mantain and get a good basis in the main lifts I've neglected for as long as I can remember (squats, deadlifts, etc, you know, the most important ones). And yes, I've read all of the stickies many times, and I also remembering looking at Carnal's site a couple of times, but I couldn't find it when I made this routine last week (if anyone can give me a link if it's still up, that'd be great). Anyways, it's a basic 3-day split. Pull Deadlifts 5x5 Barbell Rows 3x8 Upright Rows 3x8 Shrugs 3x8 Lat Pulldowns 3x8 Curls Wrist Curls Push Bench 5x5 Incline Dumbbell 3x8 Skull Crushers 3x8 Shoulder Press 3x8 Close Grip Bench 3x8 Squat Squat 5x5 Front Squat 3x8 Leg Press 3x8 Still Leg Deadlift 3x8 Calf Raises 3x8 Couples notes and questions. I know curls, wrist curls, and calf raises are not looked upon too highly here, but I figured I can throw them in at the end of my lifting if I have time, and not really worry about them too much. I put stiff leg deadlits on my squat day, but I've seen them on both deadlift and squat days, so I wasn't really sure. I'm thinking of taking out leg press and instead doing lunges, because I'm not even sure if my college weight room has a leg press (course, I've never seen anyone do anything other than bench and curls in there, so who knows). Additionally, what is the big difference between squats and front squats? As far as the main lifts, do the weights stay the same throughout the 5x5, or do they increase as you go (kind of a pyramid scheme)? For instance, if were to do 135 for squats, would I do 135 for all 5 sets of 5 reps, or change it as I go? Anyways, thanks a lot of any help, great board you have going here too.
