    What're you even trying to accomplish with this?

      gains i think? not too sure anymore though

      It doesn't sound that stupid if you tweak it....
      Use PPL with high volume (and low weights) for hypertrophy.
      Use UpLow for strength (like 5x5). Of course, get rid of lat raises, hack-squats and dragon flags.

      id like some extra shoulder definition which i dont think i could get purely from ohp, hack squat removal is valid, but why would i not do ab exercises?

        If you want more muscle don't do a powerlifting or powerbuilding routine, do a bodybuilding routine. Get clear on exactly what you out of this and plan your routine around that.

        Because I only train them close to summer when cutting. Of course be free to add them if you like. I suggested UpLow only for strength.

    Seems pretty solid, would integrate some core-focused exercises. Planks, crunches, something like that.

      said, i might just scrap the flags from work days and just do abs on rest days. dragon flags, planks and crunches for 3 sets each seems good

        If I were you I'd lowered the weight and up the volume, then progressively adding the weight but maintain 5 sets x 10 reps

      seriously? also

      Squats and hack squats in the same session. Very moronic.

      pointed out that me doing squats and hack squats in the same session is moronic, so why pick a routine that does the same thing rather than just dropping it from mine

      Push
      >BP
      good start
      >OHP
      that is moronic, your front delts are already trashed after BP
      >lateral raises
      that's good if you throw OHP away
      >Incline dumbell press
      if you do that after BP and OHP then you're basically entering junk volume zone now
      >tricep pushdowns
      good
      >dips
      why the frick would you do dips after trashing your triceps? extremly moronic

      i'm not even reading further, it's probably as bad as your Push day, my advice is to switch up into FBW 3-4x a week

      give me a 3 day full body split that isnt just 2 compounds + an accessory and ill do it

      The trick is to do partial ohps because unlike the bench press with the chest, the lockout doesn't do anything for your delts. They just disengage after your upper arms breach parallel.
      Everything else you said is moronic except for that he's moronic. Full body 4x per week? Are you just stopping as soon as the set gets hard so you'll be able to do it again in 24-48 hours? That's twice as stupid as him thinking he should hit his lifts twice a week.

        3 is perfect, 4 is optional if you regenerate good enough
        > Are you just stopping as soon as the set gets hard so you'll be able to do it again in 24-48 hours?
        it seems like you're implying i would do THE EXACT same workout as 2 days before

        no, i always go all out on 1st exercise, for example on day #1 i start with BP where i literally fight for my life to not get crushed on every single last rep of the series, then i follow up with pull ups that i do near muscle failure on first 3 sets and then do the last one untill i can't do it anymore, after that it's i would do some light chest accesory like chest flies on machine (cables are always taken) after that i would do some accesory for back, then hit rear delts and finish off with triceps

        well, from that description it's rather just upper instead of full body, but if i'd replace pull ups with deadlift then it basically is full body

        then after 48h pass i hit gym again and go all out on different exercises while keeping others light and moderate

        TDLR; my gains scyrocketed after i stopped doing moronic PPL 6x a week for roiders

        >that is moronic, your front delts are already trashed after BP
        my solution is to do one day with bench press+lateral raises and one day with ohp+pec flys

        >my solution is to do one day with bench press+lateral raises and one day with ohp+pec flys
        yes, that would work and not be moronic

          So you are doing everything light enough to do it again in 48 hours but you're hitting every muscle heavy once a week too. What's the point? It's when you hit it heavy that you induce hypertrophy.

            main point of that approach is to not have weak spots, how are you supposed to get strong Incline BP if you always start your push day with flat bench?

            • 2 months ago
              Anonymous

              That was a rhetorical question. The main (only) point of full body every time is that you mistakenly believe that a light day does anything all because of studies on muscle protein synthesis, not realizing that you can mps every single day just to repair your muscle but it doesn't mean it ever has to hypertrophy.
              As for rotating variants, you can do that without having meaningless light days. Just do flat bench every week until it's up to speed followed by incline flies or something for your upper chest to not lag, then switch to incline bench followed by flat flies for a while.

                I mean, there is. But it doesn't matter all that much. Do it like that if you like it and if it's working for you. Extra excercise that isn't hypertrophic might just help you in some other way.

    >Deadlift and squat on consecutive days.

    That's the main problem here. If you expect to get any meaningful overload on either of them and properly recover, cut that shit out. In face, since odds are you don't plan on competitively deadlifting, just stop doing deadlifts entirely. Your squat variations an leg isolations will take care of your erectors and posterior chain. Pick up your calf raises from the floor and you'll never totally be lacking the motor pattern of lifting from the floor, and you'll have it without all the unnecessary fatigue and recovery demands of trying to overload a deadlift and a squat multiple times in the same week.

      Just deadlift like Dorian Yates did. Hold the tension the whole time. Never let it touch the floor. Then you don't have to load it near as heavy and you'll get the back gains without frying your system.
