drop some of your excersizes. no more then 4 excersizes for each body part.
close grip bench press works Triceps better then anything and wide grip doesn't do shit. try Dumbbell Flys over the wide grip.

Ohh I heard Wide Grip is a good exercise for your Chest, but what would be the best exercise to get the tricep horse shoe?, but otherwise my workout routine is good? do you think I should up the sets to 4? that's what everybody says I should do.

well, i take pride in my arms so i have 4 excersizes for triceps & biceps and i work them together:
Dumbbell One Arm Tricep Extension 3 x 8 - 12
Barbell Close Grip Bench Press 4 x 8 - 12
Barbell Tricep Extension 2 x 8 - 12
Cable Pushdown 4 x 8 - 12
and about the sets; 2 - 3 sets is pretty good. depends on your current level and how much weight you use i guess. also, you need to take off alot of your excersizes. you have 2 many excersizes for each body part. working them too hard and you don't have enough OFF days to give them time to recover.

I only have 5 for each, you have 4 I don't think that would be a BIG change but...... what do you mean I won't have time to rest my biceps and chest will have the rest of the week off and same with the others they all work out to 7 days rest for each body part am I right?

Looking pretty good .Looks like you have done your homework peace

Thanks boss(cdog), Yeah I finally got my act together and, said enough with this sissy shit and start with a real workout. Do you think the sets are fine or should I put them up to 3?
05-09-2003, 09:02 PM #8
Keep them right as they are just make sure you go to total failure and you will be fine .Also make sure that the two are working sets and that you do a few warm up sets before the "working sets " Peace

lol. i had 4 excersizes for each body part on my work out and cdog posted about 13 times about how i was "overtraining" and shit - now you post 5 excersizes and shit and he says that you're doing good.
your muscles grow while resting - not while working them.... work 2 - 3 body parts and then take a day off for them to recover. keep your excersizes around 3 - 4 excersizes per body part. now, if you wanna take cdog's advice over mine, i'll be happy to give you Ronnie Coleman's email and you can ask him yourself. both him & Jay Cutler help me.

You're leg workout needs a lot of work...
What about calves and hams? You don't want to be "that guy" with a big upper body and these tiny calves in shorts.

haha pros dont use gear.....hahahahaha. im not saying all pros use gear, but whoever says that pros dont use gear, as a general statement, is unrealistic.

-a day off to recover.....are u trying to ruin this guy. unless he is on gear hes gonna get no results. and if he is on gear, he probly still wont resting a day.
-work a specific muscle group once a week. 3 exercises, with 8-12 high intensity sets altogether is good enough for the major muscle groups. for the minor groups you can do 6-8 high intensity sets. you really should allow muscles a week to recover. every experienced lifter and trainer will agree.
