Is this a good starting routine? Started going to the gym 2 weeks ago this is last week of circuit training, have to start doing weight routines next week and wanna know if this is good.
My own tidbit is after a few months you may have issues progressing on bench press and OHP if you're always doing them on the same day.
Shouldn't be a problem at the start, but something to keep in the back of your mind in case you hit a brick wall down the road.
Depends on where you are. If your lifts are at intermediate level, Texas method, madcow, all that shit is pretty go to.
But most likely before you get to this point you'll plateau with different lifts at different times. Since you're still in the starting phase, you can get around this with a combination of deloading and switching up lifts.
Like the example earlier, you might stall on bench press and OHP doing them the same day.
First remedy is to deload and start progression again.
When this stops working, you can switch the order of when you do the exercises. Your first A day you do heavy bench press and lighter OHP. Your second A day you start with heavy OHP and do lighter bench press.
When this stops working, try doing OHP and bench press on different days.
This kind of situation can develop for a single lift, or any mix of compounds that focus on the same group. You can get out of these little sticks by making small adjustments to your routine. You don't have to do a huge overall and change everything.
If you're a beginner, you've got at least a good 6 months at least of newbie gains to get through before you need to start looking at more advanced routines.
