critique my workout
here's my workout. I finally have it to how I like it and I just want to see if theres anything I missed. I just started my test/dbol cycle and I'm not sure if this will be enough. I change up the order of exerices from week to week. I'm assuming everyone knows that rest pause sets are basically 3 sets?
Flat Bench - 2 warm up sets, 1 rest pause set
Decline Bench - rest pause set
Incline Bench - rest pause set
Pec Dec Burnouts - 3 sets, 20 half reps
Lat Pull-downs - 2 warm up sets, 1 rest pause set
Wide Grip Pull-Ups - rest pause set
Dead Lifts - 2 warm up sets, 1 straight set
Hammer Strength Machine - 3 straight sets
Standing Calve Raises - 3 straight sets until failure, 30 sec intervals
Lying Leg Curls - 2 warm ups, 1 rest pause
Standing Leg Curls - 1 rest pause
Squats - 3 straight sets until failure
Thurs - off
Fri (arms) (I like to change it up from week to week)
(warm up 2 sets barbell curls)
Power Rack Curls - 3 straight sets 30-40 sec intervals
Alternating Dumbell Curls or Preacher Curls - 1 rest pause
Barbell Curls Superset (burning out bis)
Overhead Extensions - 2 warm ups, 1 rest pause
Close Grip Bench Press or Lying Barbell Pullovers - 1 rest pause
Tricep Kick Backs - 3 straight sets
Seated Military Press or Standing Front Press - 2 warm ups, 1 rest pause
Upright Rows - 1 warm up, 1 rest pause
Machine Shrugs - 1 rest pause
One Arm Lateral Raises w/Dumbell - 3 straight sets
Sun - off

its a pretty good routine, i personally dont like to do both bis and tris the same day.. also i would look more into those arm excersices theres alot you can switch up with and some that will burn better then jsut doing like alternating dumbell curls... jmo..

cool. what do you think I could use for arms? they're a big problem for me and I have a hard time making up a routine for them that works

i switch up on them, i will either feel like burning them out or lifting heavy for mass.. if i am burning out i start with dumbell curls for a warm up, then i go into doing 3 sets of 7-guns, i then do 3 sets of preacher curls with dumbells, then dumbell curls on a incline bench, after that i may fit something else in but i finish off with curling a bar(45lbs) by itself for 3 sets of 15 reps..it burns..
if im feeling like a bulk, i will start with doing regular curls with the ez bar.. 4 sets of a regular grip, first set usually do about 80lbs and try to get 10-12 reps.. then i will go up to 100lbs and shoot for 8-10 reps, 110lbs 6-8reps and then i will put on like 125 and do like 4... i also do right after that like 2 or 3 sets of close grip curls on like 80-90lbs... i like to do next single arm dumbells where id normally do preacher curls..lifting heavy as i can..another cool excersize is doing curls on an incline bench but with your chest on the bench and your arms hanging in front.. its cool.. alot of the stuff i switch up with and use come from excersizes i see in magazines and others at the gym that i think would be effective...
