Yeah everyone can lift way more in the smith machine than with free weights.

If you really don't have time for 5 workouts a week, why don't you do a beginner routine? A 3 day a week 5x5 type program? This is more geared for strength than size, but it's a good place to start. Or are you just going for size?

Fuck man, no idea what was up with my triceps today. Did the regular workout that pretty much kills me every time, but I could keep on going.. Did 5 more BW sets till failure at the end, and still hit 9 reps on my last set, and still wasn't feeling sore

so usually i would do my good morning, then lat pulldown, then seated row, then bicep curls.

but the other day, i did my good mornings, then bicep curls, then seated row, then lat pulldown

i increased the results of my bicep curls by 5 pounds and decreased my lat pulldown by 5.  i didn't know the order of how you lift affects your ability to lift that much.  so my question is should i switch it around every week, or should i do the same order everytime.

Switch it up every 4-6 weeks. Keep your body guessing. Switch your split up too.

All right. I've been doing the same routine for about 6 weeks now and I've seen some nice gains. Did 3x12 on pretty much everything, except the big compound lifts (Deadlift & Squat) where I did 5x5.

I feel it's time to switch things around, maybe even to experiment with another (lower..) rep range as I'm obviously not seeing much strength gains right now. Maybe add some new exercises/remove somd old ones aswell.. I could post my current workout scheme if wanted..

Hey guys, I've been using the following routine for about 6 weeks now, so it has become time to change things around... I've maintained 3x12 rep range on pretty much all exercises, with an addition. I aim for 12 reps with a certain weight, so if I'll get in 12-10-9 reps I'll use the same weight the next week and hopefully get 12-12-11 for example. Then I'll raise the weight next week.
I've seen some size gains with this routine, but not a lot of strength gains, so I'd like a better combination in my 'next' routine..


Monday: Chest/Biceps/Forearms

BB Bench Press: 3x12
Dumbbell Fly: 3x12
Dumbbell Incline BP: 3x12
Cable Cross Over: 3x12

Seated DB Curl: 3x12 (12 reps each arm - alternating)
Seated EZ-Preacher Curl: 3x12
Standing Biceps Cable Curl: 3x12 + 3x7 (low/high/complete)

Forearms; Behind the back wrist curls, standing curls, etc 3x12

Chin-Ups: 3xFailure


Wednesday: Shoulders/Legs

Cable Front Raise: 3x12
DB Lateral Raise: 3x12
Shoulder Press: 3x12
DB Arnold Press: 3x12

Shrugs: 3x12

Seated Calf Raise: 3x12
Squat: 5x5
Deadlift: 5x5


Friday: Back/Triceps

Machine Lat Pulldown (close-grip like): 3x12
Cable Seated Row: 3x12
Wide Grip Lat Pulldown: 3x12
Pull-Ups: 3xFailure

Bench Dip: 3x12
Skull Crushers/French Press: 3x12
Triceps Pushdown w/ V-Bar: 3x12
One Arm Cable Tricep Extension: 3x12
Dips: 3xFailure


Yes, I realize I don't hit my legs hard at all, but I can't with my knee.

track coaches have us doing the exact same thing in terms of sets and reps and moving up.

So I just got back from the gym with my buddy who likes to do things differently than I do.

He says we should do full body workouts and after each exercise do something completely uninvolved with the last muscle worked, i.e. Chest->Legs->Back->Arms->Abs->Chest->etc.

I said I like do go to the gym and do a BUNCH of workouts for a couple muscles then the next day do a few completely different muscles, etc. I.e. Arms->Chest->Chest/Arms->Arms->Mostly Chest w/ some arms->etc. (Then the next day do legs/back or whatever just nothing chest/arms)

I always thought that when you lift you burn the shit out of one or a couple muscle groups then leave them for a day or two to repair while you work other stuff. Full body workouts and full rest days for me were what you did if you couldn't go to the gym a lot didn't (or imo... what you did in high school when they couldn't make you workout every day and only had control over you and forced you into the weight room every other day)

Any input from the knowledgeable bf2s community?

They're just 2 different approaches. Some people prefer full body workouts, other people prefer muscle group splits. I've read several studies about which is "better" and there isn't really a more effective workout. If anything the results leaned slightly towards full body. It just kind of depends on how your body responds to it, so it's basically whichever you prefer.

Full body workouts should be done by anybody who's just starting out with workouts. Once you've plateaued with that (you usually do) then you go into concentrating on specific muscle groups each day.

Starting off by doing concentrated workouts will get you nowhere, as your body isn't used to the overall idea of a workout in the first place.
