    workout plan

    I have been using the following plan. i am trying to see if it is ok if increased what i did for chest and if u have any overall suggestionsay 1- Chest and biceps
    CHEST
    -Warm up- 1 set flat bench
    -Flat bench- 3 sets reps 8-6-4
    -Incline dumbbell press- 3 sets reps 8-6-4 or 10-8-6
    -Incline dumbbell flies- 2 sets reps varied (no less than 6)
    -Decline dumbbell flies- 2 sets reps same
    BICEPS
    -Warm up- 1-set straight barbell curls
    -Straight barbell curls- 3 sets reps 8-6-4 or 8-6-6 (heavy weight and cheating is allowed)
    -Standing dumbbell hammer curls- 3 sets reps 10-8-6 (minor cheating allowed)
    -Cable curls or preacher curls (based on preference)- 3 sets (no less than 8 reps)
    -Optional (once a month at most)- 1-2 sets or 21’s with ez-curl bar

    Day 2- Legs (quads, hamstring, glutes, calves)
    -Warm up- 2 sets light free weight squats (first with no weight)
    -Free weight squats- 4 sets reps 10-8-6-4
    -Leg press- 3 sets reps 10-8-6 or 8-6-4
    -Hamstring curls- 2 sets reps 10-8
    -Leg extensions- 2 sets reps 10-8
    -Lunges- 2-3 sets (use dumbbells heavy concentrate on good slow form keep back straight each set should be about 20 yards)

    Day 3- OFF

    Day 4- Back
    -Pull-ups- 4 sets reps 10-8-6-4 (slow up and down, use weight if possible)
    -Lat pull down- 2 sets reps 10-8 or 8-6
    -Iso lateral rows- 3 sets reps 10-8-6 (one arm at a time, chest should not leave the pad)
    -Cable rows- 3 sets reps 10-8-6 (get a good stretch and concentrate on using middle back)

    Day 5- Shoulders and triceps
    SHOULDERS
    -Warm up- 1 set of barbell military press
    -Barbell military press- 3 sets reps 10-8-6
    -Dumbbell shoulder press- 3 sets reps 10-8-6
    -Dumbbell front raises- 2 sets reps varied
    -Dumbbell lateral raises- 2-3 sets reps varied
    TRICEPS
    -Warm up- 1 set skull crushers
    -Skull crushers (I Prefer with small straight bar but can be done with ez-curl)- 3 sets reps 8-6-6 or 10-8-6
    -Cable push downs ( I like either v-grip)- 3 sets reps 10-8-6 or 10-8-8
    -Reverse cable push downs (palms up with the ez-curl attachment)- 3 sets reps 10-8-6
    -OPTIONAL- Rope pull downs 2 sets

    Day 6- OFF

    You can do abs every other day if you want ( I do). This workout is based on high intensity. All out on every set. Rest between sets should be medium. Workouts should be no more than 50 minutes in length (excluding abs). Get nuts….

    B-A-M-F is my roomy, this is a preliminary workout plan that his buddy made for us, we have been training for about 2 years, this was a suggested workout, we just started it this week.

    i agree with you about the warmups, we do more, but this is just what the guy wrote. we do calves too, but the guy didn't put it in their either.

    So more sets? that is what i thought also when i saw it. we did the chest and bis yesterday and i didn't really feel my chest that much.

    More suggestions would be appreciated.

    and if anyone else wants to post their workout routine on here for us to look at, that would be great. i am gonna go research some now. I LOVE THAT SEARCH BUTTON!

    I know I'm a girl but -

    I would suggest adding either cable flies, dips, or pec dec to chest day. Also, you may want to add T-bar rows or bent over rows to back day.

    Calves and traps are missing.... and no rear delts.

    I personally do tri's and chest on the same day. Then I work traps and shoulders together.

    BigKev's routine should help give you ideas about different exercises to intergrate into your routine.

    imo, your lower chest gets plenty of work from flat bench press. no need to prioritize lower chest. if anything needs to be emphasized, its upper pec developement. so, i dont recommend decline presses at all.

    Adjust a seat in the gym i fogorthow many degress i jsut compare it to the machines in my gym so i dont know you cna measure it up but i guess maybe 45 degrees either do yor dumbbells on them or roll it under the smith machine and use the barbell. Hope that helps incline are very important and shuld not be excluded from a workout. But do a heck on how the seat should be angled.

    alright, i jst started kev's workout today, and did chest....my god, it kicked my ass. i usually use 70's on incline for 3 sets of 12, after i was done with the flat bench i went to incline and grabbed the 70's, and i could barely even get 6 for the first set...by the end i was using 55's and my arms were shaking so bad...i've never been that fatigued just after flat bench

    Yep, I did chest, the next day I was so sore and went through back, the next day I did shoulders and my chest was still a little sore and then my back was sore the next two days of workouts.

    I love it, if it is sore then I know I tore it down and its gonna grow.

    I am finding though that it takes two complete days to get over being sore in a specific body part. Hopefully that will come down to one day after a few cycles through the workout.

    How long have you been training?
    He is doing 12 sets of chest and 9 sets on biceps...you dont think there is enough sets there? Everyone else seems to say no more than 6 sets on bi's and 6 on tri's and like 9-12 on chest..i personally do 12 on chest 12 on bi's and 6-9 on tri's
