DB Incline Bench 3x8-12
Cable Crossovers 3x8-12
Low Cable Flys 3x8-12

Rates ?
+ I need some exercices to replace Low cable flys since I truelly hate this exercice and really can't fix my form.
So you basically do Texas Method but add in accessories? What are your percentages of 1RM for day C?
Why areyou doing chest so much more than shoulders
Bench 5x5
Skullcrushers 3x10
OHP 3x10
Incline dumbell bench 3x10
Dumbell fly 3x10
Tricep pulldown 3×10
Pec fly (machine) 3×10

Dumbell row 3-10
Bench dumbell curl 3x10
Lat pulldown 3x10
Bicep pulldown 3x10
Row machine 3x10
Hammer curls 3x10

Squat 5x5
Calf raises 3x15
Leg press 3x10
Leg extension 3x10
Leg raises 3x15
Weighted situps 3x10
Oblique machine thing 3x10
For C I just to go as hard as I can.
I just try to progress on A and C. B is like a "rest" if I can put it like that.

Because I want my chest to grow since I'm making progress in stregth but it seems that I make no gainz in my chest. So i'm getting bigger and bigger but my chest remains the same.
But I was thinking of adding some shoulders exercices but I don't know when and wich one. Propbably sitted OHP on A and/or C
Too much without breaks. Pretty high intensity with the same muscles being worked like 3/4 times per day. You're probably getting a nice pump on the daaayleee I'm quite sure you'd see an increase in actual gains with PxPxLx or at least PPLxPPLx.

Zero lower back exercises. Why no DL variations?
I just hate rest days, I feel like I'm wasting my time if I rest. PPL is supposed to have much fewer rest days, but if you think more would be better I'll try it out. And there's no where to deadlift at my school's gym, should I replace them with a different lower back exercise?

Looks pretty excelent.
You could try Db incline bench for the upper pecs since you dont like the low flys
If rest days feel like a waste, you're not lifting heavy enough weights. I was on a very similar routine recently (less accessory lifts but still PPL) and I was killing myself by going PPLxPPLx. How long have you been on this routine, are you noticing lift numbers gains? Are you benching and squatting in a smith machine or something? Just pick up the barbell and put it on the ground for deadlifts, you don't need a platform or a lot of space. It's a pretty crucial lift but you could do back extensions or something if you really had to hit the lower back with no other option.

You know your muscles only grow during rest, right?
My bench has definitely been lagging compared to my squat, I'll try more rest days and see if that helps. Plus, you're right, if I really want to deadlift I can probably find a space.
maybe get rid of the db ohp and replace bench with barbell ohp or incline on wendesday
woops forgot to post my routine
I will. Thanks.

I really want to keep the bench for reasons I stated before.
But why would I get rid of a shoulder exercice when I'm no training them that much ? But Im' definitely going to add barbell ohp
sorry, didnt read the other comments

Doing 3x fullbody, been 3 months, first one just trying around, adapting to new schedule in the morning and reading info etc, not very intense, second one had fucking christmas between so gym was closed some days

come from nearly 3 years of karate kyokushin and doing other martial arts all my life so there is a base though I was in the shit last months because bad eating, sleeping poorly, depression, etc

I'm already seeing some gains since now I count calories, eat clean bulk and not skip a single day (not like I did ever, I have strong willpower)

I'm a 5,7manlet at 143lbs
Fullbody it's FxFxFxx in the mornings while karate KKKKKxx 1h at night

In order of execution:
Incline dumbbell bench press 2x8
Chin-ups 2x6, started at 2x3 and will add weight at 2x10
Squats 2x8
Bench press 2x8
Lat pull down 2x8 (looking to change it for Pull-ups when able to do 2x5
Dumbbell row 2x10
Dumbbell overhead press 2x8
Bicep dumbbell curls 2x10
Lateral raises 2x10
Triceps pull down cable 2x10
Leg raises 3x10
Shrugs 2x10

It takes me 5 min of warming on bicycle and 50min~ routine
I keep adding more weight (usually 5kg) on exercises once I feel I can do 2x10 easy

Am I gonna make it bros?
for now at least I'm having fun, like the routine a lot, feel very energized on karate classes and starting to see some muscle on my filthy skinnyfat/ottermode chest and arms
too many exercises
good for you. I would only stay on this routine for a little bit then move onto something maybe a bit more specific for karate
Don't give advice again, please.
If you have the time and energy for all this, good for you but it looks like there are too much exercices.
no bench masterrace
sets x reps?

also goal body would be something like pic related
my body form is kinda similar though he probably is taller

yeah it all started to help me in karate and distract myself but eventually started to like it more and more and now I'm kinda obsessed and reading shit about lifting and lurking my beloved /fit/ everyday

I have the energy and rest 1 or 2min~ in everything, years of martial arts (cardio) and proper diet and music helps

gonna sleep, will read and answer tomorrow at breakfast before gym
thanks in advance brehs
do push presses, farmers walks, lunges, chinups for karate
Well there nothing else to say. But remember that to put mass, you need to lift heavy. And since you have a lot of exercice + the fact that you train martial art makes me doubt that you're really going hard at the gym.
Personnaly I used to box a lot and I know that if I had to go back to boxing with my current routine, I would have to neglect some workouts.
+ Remember you have tto eat big( and clean) to get big.
should mention is Goes ABxABCx
What are the weight progression formulas for your program?

I'm looking at intermediate routines and hardly any say when/how much weight should be added.
look at 531

You know brah, just thinking of your specific situation and I'm thinking that you may want to sub out barbell bench press for dumb bell bench press. You won't be able to go as heavy but you'll develop more tension in your muscles, which is helpful for your sport.

I'd even suggest starting a progression for pistol squats instead of barbell squats.

I'd suggest ditching the shrugs for snatch-grip dead-lifts. More compression of the spine, more core work, etc - you can go pretty light on them and still get something out of them compared to shrugs or your standard DL.

I'd also suggest throwing power-cleans in there. That will help you sharpen your explosiveness.
I'm doing a 4 week routine for Bench and Deadlifts, and a DUP type program for Squats. AxBxCDx
Bench Press 5x5 75%(Week1) 4x3 80% 3x6 75% (2) 4x3 85% 3x8 75% (3) 3x2 80% 3x5 75%

Absolute beginner doing PPLPPLR because of the t-rexes that I saw in SS threads

Deadlifts 1x5+/Barbell rows 4x5, 1x5+ (alternate, so if you did deadlifts on Monday, you would do rows on Thursday, and so on)
3x8-12 Pulldowns OR Pullups OR chinups
3x8-12 seated cable rows OR chest supported rows
5x15-20 face pulls
4x8-12 hammer curls
4x8-12 dumbbell curls

4x5, 1x5+ bench press/4x5, 1x5+ overhead press (alternate in the same fashion as the rows and deadlifts)
3x8-12 overhead press/3x8-12 bench press (do the opposite movement: if you bench pressed first, overhead press here)
3x8-12 incline dumbbell press
3x8-12 triceps pushdowns SS 3x15-20 lateral raises
3x8-12 overhead triceps extensions SS 3x15-20 lateral raises

2x5, 1x5+ squat
3x8-12 Romanian Deadlift
3x8-12 leg press
3x8-12 leg curls
5x8-12 calf raises

I'm also doing 30 minutes of cardio on both leg days and the first pull day each week

I feel a less is more approach has done me well so far.
INB4: y no legs?
Well, I have very bad lower back problems, so unilateral leg movements that use less weight but challenge the muscle more suit me better.

I really stress stretching the bodypart that has been worked at the end of the workout. Stretching heavy with weights expands your Fascia, which allows more muscle to grow. Part of the secrets of why gymnst are no ripped.
A - Chest/Tris
Incline DB
Decline bench
Cable crossovers
Tri Pulldowns

B - Back/Bis
Cabled row
Lat pulldown
Bent over rows
Reverse fly machine
Preacher curls
DB curls

C - Shoulders
OHP dumbells
Front raises
Lateral raises
Random ab exercises

D - Legs
Squat/Leg press
Quad extensions
Glute curls
Calf extensions
Abs if time


I throw in abs randomly some days. I also throw in random "full body" days were I do some weird cross fit type circuit training. Also some 2-3 hr sessions of cardio from playing basketball twice a week.

I don't see anyone posting the back/bi chest/tri routine. Am I outdated?

Should i go to SS or look for a more "balanced" routine like PPL?

Your goal body is on roids.

My shoulders have started to round inwards, so I've added some extra back work to straighten myself out. (N-no h-hetero.)

Main lifts go anywhere from 3x5, 5x5 or mountains (load up to max or new pr: deload slightly, reload, then deload) depending on how I feel and how busy the gym is. Other than Fridays and the possible Sunday, my workout is around an hour.

⤏ are exercises I probably won't do, but if I'm not tired/want to kill time.

It's shit.










TM follows pretty much the same progression scheme from SS, just weekly instead of daily. 2kg for lowerbody, 1-2kg for upperbody on intensity days.
On volume days it doesn't matter much, but generally follows that same progression. You can lower it if you feel like you need to, though.

Here's the dump for people who want an actual good routine:

Routines for intermediate lifters:

>>35778179 5 day TM split
>>35777983 4 day TM for cutting
>>35777978 4 day ULxULxx TM
>>35777967 3 day standard TM
>>35777961 4 day PPL TM split
>>35778010 4 consecutive days split

Routines for novices:
>>35778052 SS + power accessories for sports
>>35778080 4 day Upper-lower Novice Routine
>>35778096 SS + accessories
>>35778117 SS + accessories
>>35777991 SS for women

Remember not to fall for the PPLPPLx meme. It's a routine where the only people who make good gains are roiders, and even then they all end up weak faggots.

And remember, you only grow and get stronger during rest.
when dyels justify their pitiful gains by setting the natty threshold unreasonably low
>i am your natty god

Get out and go back to /fraud/.

ITT a bunch of dyels with less than one year lifting adding a lot of unuseful assistence.

Every fucking thread.
For the intermediate TM splits, what's the progression of increasing weight look like?


2kg for lowerbody, 1-2kg for upperbody.

You increase both intensity and volume work, but you can be slower on volume work since it doesn't matter much.


No one believe in you, roidfag. Just leave.
On the same note, if you're gonna correct people, you should post body pics and lifts. Otherwise you're just a neckbeard shouting down other novice lifters anonymously.
Thinking if getting off SS and moving to pic related.

Skinnyfag trying to bulk up. 6'5 190lbs

Get >>>/out/ roidfag
On the juice?
Forgot pic
per week I'm assuming?

For >>35777967 when it talks about missing reps, do you still increase while changing the number of reps?
Currently doing 31 ama by some dude from leangains. It's not your textbook 5x5 or SS, but it works. Reverse pyramid training improved my strength considerably. Has all the major lifts plus some assistance work. Rate mates.

Yes and yes.
i utilize weekly periodization on PPLxPPLx routine and i progress 8-10lbs on most of lifts monthly
currently 195lbs at 185/295/385/435 all x3

general outline goes like this
>2 weeks of high volume:
4x8-10 on 2 compound lifts (for push day: flat bench followed by incline DB bench), 3 isolations all done in 3-4x12 (chest, triceps and side delt isos)

followed by
>2 weeks of high intensity/low volume:
5x3/3x5 on 2 compound lifts (for push day: bench with spoto-press or OHP with CGBP), 2 isolations 2-3x8 (triceps and side delts)

followed by
>4-7 days of lighter recovery work and then start all over again

there are many ways to skin a cat and mine works best for me
mark rippetoe and his "no hi-volume allowed/my 3x5/5x5 is the best for everyone" powerlifting dickriding fat "experts" didn't invent lifting

broaden your horizons and accept that push-pull-legs is one of the best routines (when structured well)

I OHP 120kg and my squat is almost double yours.
I train 4 days per week.

Stay small, memeboy
let me guess, you also bench 500 and regularly pull 850+ for reps at 4%bf

Not really, no.
I was thinking of using PHAT, but instead of brosplit it would be with push-pull. So it would be like this:
Monday-Upper power
Tuesday-Lower power
Thursday-Push hypertrophy
Friday-Pull hypertrophy
With correct volume, is this viable?
I'm trying to focus more on explosive movements to supplement my martial arts

I'm doing upper/lower split ULxULU
-bench press 4 x 5
- OHP 3 x 5
- Pendlay Rows 3 x 5
- Pull - ups 3 x f
some hypertrophy fluff
- Incline flys 3 x 8 - 12
- hammer curls 3 x 8 - 12
- lateral raises 3 x 8 - 12

- Highbar squat (lower weight focus on exploding up to prevent form failure) 4 x 6
- deadlifts (warm ups are explosive on the way up) 1 x 3
- Power cleans 3 x 3
- box jumps 3 x 5

should I add should I remove or should I replace some stuff?

the primary focus is to be more explosive on sparring since our tournament fights just last from 1 - 2 minutes per round.

What do you think of this routine? It's built around DB and a pullup bar and SS principles. It's supposed to be fully body and I do it 3 times a week on average.

Work Out with Dumbbells & Pull Up Bar

Military Presses 5x5
Sumo Squats 5x5
French Presses 5x5
One-Armed Rows 5x5
Pushups 10x5
Chinups 8x5 (negative ones for now)
Shrugs 15x5

Thank you for any advice. I intend to do SS with a BB once my knees can take it (flexibility issues, I think) and money.

Pic-unrelated, it's my waifu.

lean bulk u wasteman
No one?

Once I'm done with the squats, I stretch between sets from other exercises. I also don't do the squats in a series, I do them between other sets because my knees still ache if I try too hard.

This work out takes me over 1:30 hour to complete if I'm slow, and around an hour if I'm a little faster. Rest between sets is what takes the most time. I need 2 minutes or more depending on the exercise. It varies, but if I take only 45 seconds, I don't complete the set very often.
Completely new to lifting and looking for a routine, what does the 5x5 and the percentages on workouts mean?

>dat pic

I kekked.

I can't comment on your routine because I'm not experienced enough, but I do wonder why, if you have access to a BB, you don't do simply SS?
>Completely new to lifting and looking for a routine, what does the 5x5 and the percentages on workouts mean?

Fuck percentage. 5x5 means you repeat the movement 5 times per set and there are 5 sets.

3x5 means you do 3 sets of 5 reps.


It's 5x10 pushups
5x8 chinups
5x15 shrugs

Mixed my shit.

I did Strong Lifts for a few months. I got bored and plateaued. My gym only has two squat racks and one bench, so I found with SL if they were taken, my whole time at the gym was wasted. My symmetry is also really off (legs weak) that I needed accessory work, like Romanian Deadlifts and hip thrusts, to help correct that. I've actually found that doing accessory work has greatly improved all my main lifts.
Doing ss right now (with chin ups)
How should I replace power cleans? the forms too technical for me to do safely.

I only have a squat rack, barbell, dumbells(only up to 30 though), bench with leg shit, and a pullup bar. Im cutting so the volume isnt as high as it could be, any suggestions?
Not sure if this goes here, but whatever.

I'm doing CoolCicada's PPL and on the chest day I wanted to switch Incline bench to Decline bench. Good idea, bad idea?
Just do rows, fuck what rippetoe says about them

Doing pic related, started 3 weeks ago AxBxCxx. Haven't lifted or really done any fitness shit since early high school.

Not fat, just skinny fat, borderline skeleton.

Started everything at bar only weight, now i'm at:

Bench Press: 90 lbs
OHP: 75 lb (my weakest, anything I can do to improve?)
Rows: 75 lb (also my weakest, my back is weak as fuck it seems)
Deadlift: 100 lb
Squat: 120 lb
Chin Ups: Bodyweight until I figure out a way to add weights in a non-awkward manner

Am I fucking up somewhere? Is that progression too slow from the bar? I didn't know how strong I was and didn't want to blow anything out, so I just started at the bar and progressed as the program stated. I jumped quite a bit at some since I could do 20+ reps on the third "to failure" set on some very early on, and now I'm at a point in some of the weight where I'm actually pushing myself to even squeeze out the 5 on the third set.
