Creating a Routine

How do you guys decide on your routine? Do you make a week routine and just commit to it forever, or do you change it up after a bit? I've been working out for a bit, but I want to nail down a good week routine. Please help a poor skinnyfat change his ways.

      Here you go you degenerates, now help me

      You'll first drop the porn use, and rebuild your relationship with your mother and father figure

      I did that already, but I figured titties would help get traction for the thread

        Very nice
        As for a routine, stick to something simple and aim to use most of your energy to do compound exercises, push ups, pull ups, other bodyweights, etc.

    I started out with a strictly beginner routine and then I adapted it when it stopped working (i.e., I stopped being able to add weight on my lifts according to the original routine's schedule).

    I basically just looked around for alternate schemes of progression and I found some. I started out with the phrak's Greyskull variant which is very simple and "balanced" in the sense of basically doing the same overall volume of upper body lifts and a 2:1 ratio of "squat" to "deadlift". I put those in quotes because I actually use dumbbells for everything, so I reverse lunge instead of squat and I do unilateral deadlifts. Anyway, once I got frustrated at my upper body lifts plateauing I switched the simple "add x pounds" scheme to a reverse pyramid scheme. This way I was either trying to increase reps or weight and the reverse pyramid set up meant I was working with a few different amounts of weight/reps each workout, which kept things interesting and really allowed me to make progress again for a while.

    When that stopped working (i.e. kept plateauing again) I just looked for other routines that were meant for people in my situation. Had been lifting for long enough to burn out on beginner/novice routines but was far from an expert. 5/3/1 BBB seemed fun and I liked the way it kept switching things up. I've been doing a variation of it with some added accessories for a while now.

    I don't know how long you've been at it yet, but I would recommend just doing what you're doing until you start to actually have trouble making progress (i.e. increasing weight or reps over time). You make relatively huge adaptations early on usually so ride that as far as you can. Then start looking for recommended routines that fit your situation.

    supersets, ideally 3 lifts with the same weights or machine
    lift 1 x reps
    lift 2 x reps
    lift 2 x reps
    repeat x sets
    move to next machine

    must suck paying monthly for a gym where you can't do this properly, it's the only way to actually train hypertrophy and you'll get banned from gyms for it unless you're totally alone. some asshole will always find a reason why he needs to interrupt your sets to use one of your dumbbells or whatever.

      and Push pull legs cardio/rest with no regard for day of week obviously, that's implied if you want to make real progress.

    Follow a real routine an expert made and have given results to lots of people, is pretty stupid to try to make your own if you have little to no experience

        /plg/ and plebbit have beginner routines in their intro resources. Which one largely doesn't matter, all that matters is you stick with it.
        The classic is SS/SL. Do that or don't, what you do for your first 3-6 months isn't very important.

    I try to hit every area of the body with at least 6 sets a week.

    This is what I'm running, I'm experimenting with minimalism:
    Warm up every day with 1 set of 10-20 hack squats and 1 set of 10-20 pullovers.

    Mon: floor press 3×5-10 superset with calf raises 3×10-30
    Tues: t rows 3×10-20 superset with ez bar tricep extensions
    Wed: press 3×10 superset with reverse curls 10-20

    Go to strengthlog . com, they have several plans you can adopt.

    Mon: CHEST/TRICEPS
    Tue: LEGS

    Thu: BACK/BICEPS
    Fri: SHOULDERS

    I do 3-4 exercises for each day, and 5x10's of each one. If I still have energy after I finish a routine, I choose one exercise and do it until complete failure.

    I've only been doing this for 3 months but I already have noticeable results. I think doing it to failure each time causes more muscle damage and thus more gains.

    Two apps i’ve downloaded are Habit and Todoist. Habit let’s you create and track habits. One of my daily morning habits is to create a todo list of things I want to accomplish that day, which is where todoist comes in.

    This is probably a good place to ask this. What are your thoughts on "built like a badass" program? Have any of you tried it and what was your experience?
