Changing Workout Routine
For the past few months, I have been hitting a plateau with some of my lifts. (mainly by bench press)
I do a 4 day split, my workout is 2 days on, 1 day off, etc. I have lowered my rep scheme to about 6 min 8 max reps to try and build some strength. I pyramid up on all of my sets, which I may stop doing that. I change up my routine every 6 weeks.
I track my calories that I eat everyday and actually upped my calories (mainly protein and carbs) the past 3 weeks hoping that would help. I have my diet down on an Excel spreadsheet so I know exactly what I eat everyday. My current split is like this:
I am thinking about going to a full body split for awhile to try and get past this and work every muscle group twice a week like below. (I would do 3 working sets of each excercise) I still need to tweak it, but this is a quick routine I put together.
Bent Over Rows
Day 2: Rest
Pulley Push Downs
Day 4: Rest
Day 5: Rest
Day 6: Repeat
Any thoughts/suggestions on this? THX!

Dude if you were to do that split routine.....you would have to be in the gym for 4 hours to get all of that done in one day. For one.. if I were to bench on day one, there is no way in hell I could incline 2 days later.
