ITT we create a beginners workout routine.
>5xf pull ups
>bench both days, but ohp one day
pic related is my preference..
trapchan says its not enough squatting, but i say fuck that. most people don't need many squats to build lots of mass and strength.
plus, you should be able to hip thrust slightly more than you can squat, so it still induces test and shit... plus glutes > thighs and hip thrusts still train legs.
>pick one from the beginner section
wrote this for a friend who was going to start lifting but never did:
3x5 ohp/bench (alternate) 3x8 side lateral raise
3x5 chin/row (alternate) 3x8 reverse wrist curl
3x5 hip thrusts
3x5 ohp/bench (alternate) 3x8 barbell shrug
3x5 chin/row (alternate) 3x8 calf raise
5x3 power clean
>Doing starting strength but supplementing each day with some extra upper body workouts to avoid trexxxing.
You mean exactly like the book tells you to do from week 4 you fucking retard?
...then don't write bodyweight if it's not bodyweight.
linear progression is literally the most crucial element to a novice program.
...and you still didn't justify the push ups..
when i was DYEL and type 2 obese, i managed to do 3 chin ups or one pull up
i can't imagine anyone being weaker and fatter than how i was as anything but an extreme fringe demographic.
chin-ups are much better for progression, but the forearm strength that pull-ups develop are crucial for chin-up strength.
you really should be doing both. or hammer chins for the best of both world.. or just a forearm accessory in addition to chins.
