I just hit the gym for the first time ever, this is the routine I'm using (I haven't done b and c yet) I felt pretty awkward but overall not bad.

Thoughts?

      beginners will make calf and forearm gains just from compounds. once youre an intermediate you need to isolate them.

      Yes, and also because I was jumping around weight trying to figure out was was too light and heavy.

      Where does it say 1 set? It's 3 of squat. Also what's wrong with Romanian deadlift?

    I’d recommend doing leg press and OHP first and second on your third day

    not the worst thing I've seen around here. remember to focus on your form so you can get it right from the start. fixing shit form down the line is way harder than learning it correctly as a novice. good luck and enjoy

    Terrible routine. It's too long for a beginner with too many different exercises. Typical resolutioner routine tbh

        Yup. That's the perfect answer for someone who has no idea what they're doing in the gym. If it works to get you inside the building sure. But this isn't a good routine. All I'm saying

            Literally just do Starting strength,Stronglifts, or Greyskull LP.

            Or if you can’t even be bothered googling, literally just do this for one month and then report back.

            Tuesday
            Squat 3x5
            Bench 3x5
            Pull-ups 3x half of your rep max
            Thursday
            Ohp 3x5
            Deadlift 3x5
            Chin-ups 3x half rep max
            Saturday
            Squat 3x5
            Bench 3x5
            Row 3x10

            If you completed all reps x sets, add weight the next session. You can start with 20/30/10/5 lb increments for squat/deadlift/bench/ohp. If you fail to complete a set, do smaller jumps I.e 15/10 lbs. If you fail two consecutive workouts in a row, move on to a more intermediate program.
            This is the part LP haters fuck up, they try to run SS for 6 months and get nowhere.

    Awesome that you're getting into lifting OP, but this seems a bit all over the joint.
    Where did you get this routine from?

    Lol you fell for the 3x10 shit IST dyels
    Told you.
    Drop every exercise except for bench squat deadlift ohp, add pull-ups and do any beginner program that’s 3x5 or 5x5. Do this until you stop adding weight every session and once you stall move on to a different program with slower progression.
    Congratulations I just saved you from become another dyel 130 lbs dyel spinning his wheels doing “cable crossovers”

      Ah anon are you saying it’s better to do 3 sets of 5 reps rather than 3 sets of 12 reps?
      Is this only for bench/squat/DL/OHP or is this apply for everything like machines as well?

      • 2 weeks ago

        not that anon, but yeah pretty much. lower reps means you can use higher weight. it depends on your goals, but as a beginner, building a base of strength will generally give you a better start.

        3x12 and stuff is fine for machines. It’s also fine for big lifts. HOWEVER, if you are a beginner, sticking with lower reps just gets you gains faster with less effort.
        It’s not like your program CANT work, it’s just that you can get more results with less effort.
        When I started lifting my 3x5 squat went from 30kg to 85kg in a month from SS and my 3x5 bench from 25kg to 65kg. This isn’t particularly impressive, but This was with 3 hours in the gym per week. No reason to spend hours in the gym doing pull-down and shit when minimal work will get you 90% of the results. I only ever had to start doing much more work when I got significantly stronger.

          Based post and checked.
          I’ve had back surgeries so DL/squats/OHP are out for me. I’m stuck with machines and dumbells.
          Today I did
          Chest press
          Shoulder press
          Pec abduction
          Lat pull down
          Seated low row
          Leg curl
          Leg extension
          Leg press
          With Cross-trainer warmup/down
          Is that a decent FBW for an injured noob?
          Been trying to get weights at where I can do 12,12,8 reps or similar and have been progressing weights upwards over last two months. But I might swap to sets of 6 reps at higher weights if that’s what you reckon?

            I'm not who you're replying to but in general low reps = more strength, high reps = more size. DO NOT do 6 or 7 rep sets though. 5x5 is good, 3x8+ is also good, you can still gain strength on 8+ reps.

    You're doing a lot of big, big lifts in one day, I would doubt you're able to do each exercise with optimal intensity. 3x fullbody is fine to begin, adding more days and splitting up your movements will help you be able to train each lift better. Exercise selection is pretty decent, you've got the big ones, don't be scared to swap out exercises for ones you prefer, do some experimenting.

    You also seem to be missing lift number 2 on your A routine, that or you forgot how to count.

      That would be a typo, I like most of the exercises here but I might change the cable Chest Crossovers with fly machine or dumbbell flys

        pec deck is pretty nice, I like those. DB flys are optimal though. Any thoughts of doing more than 3 days a week? Doesn't have to be a full 6 day PPL but you'll get more out of splitting up those big compounds.

          I want to keep it at 3 mainly because I also work 5 days a week and do boxing on the non gym afternoons. Also I feel like right now I need extra days of rest because my body isn't used to weights so everything hurts. Once I get used to it I could probably up it to 4 days with a big compound on each but atm I don't see the need.

    I don't see any grave mistakes like completely neglecting your upper back or doing ten different chest exercises. If you don't want to immediatly fuck around with programming, just focus on sticking to it consistently and getting the form right, it might not be perfectly efficient, but it won't fuck you up and as a beginner you'll make progress either way if you're conistent and eating enough.
