    Workout Tips

    Hey everyone i have been on this board and haven’t received much response so i would greatly appreciate it on this post. I am having trouble going up in weight and i think i hit a plateau in my benching and overall workout. Here is what my current workout is. Any suggestions to change it or modify it in any way to make me stronger i would love. Here is my current workout schedule for Monday’s (upper body and arms)

    Mondays(Upper Body and Arms)
    Bench 4 sets: first set-132(10 reps)
    second set-152(10 reps)
    third set-162(8 reps)
    Fourth set-172(6 reps)

    Incline Bench 4 sets (free weights)
    first set-45's (10 reps)
    second set-50's(10 reps)
    third set-55's(10 reps)
    fourth set-60's(8 reps)

    Decline Bench 4 sets (usually use a normal flat bar with a decline bench, but sometimes use the machine)
    first set-132 (10 reps)
    second set-152(10 reps)
    third set-162(8 reps)
    fourth set-167(6 reps)

    Flys(free weights on Monday use machine on Thursday's)
    first set-20(10 reps)
    second set-25(10 reps)
    third set-30(10 reps)
    fourth set-30(10 reps)

    Flat bar presses(Tricep Pressdown)
    first set-100(10 reps)
    second set-120(10 reps)
    third set-140 (10 reps)
    fourth set-160(10 reps)

    Lying Tricep Extension
    first set-75(10 reps)
    second set-80(10 reps)
    third set-85(10 reps)
    fourth set-90(10 reps)

    Bicep Curls(Use variations of bars, free weights, and machines) I am using free weights for my example here.
    first set-20's (10 reps)
    second set-25's(10 reps)
    thirs set-30's (10 reps)
    fourth set-30's (10 reps)

    Hammer Curls
    first set-25's(10 reps)
    second set-25's(10 reps)
    third set-30's(10 reps)
    fourth set-35's(10 reps)

    Runner Curls(dont know the real name kind of like a running motion but with free weights.)
    first set-20's(10 reps)
    second set-25's(10 reps)
    third set-30's(10 reps)
    foruth set-35's(8 reps)

    That is it for my Monday workout, i will post my entire week later but i am mainly concenered with my upper body routine as i haven’t been able to gain much ground in the strength part of it for about 2 months. I should note that i do 4 sets of pushups(15) when benching. 4 sets of wide arm pushups with incline bench. 4 sets of decline pushups with decline bench.

    Any modification or any suggestions at all would be greatly appreciated and i thank all of you who looked at my post looking foward to some comments.

    Do you train back or legs?
    I love it when a plan comes together.

    36 sets in one workout. Wow I think that is a record. Way way way too much volume. Very bad workout.

    Tuesday workouts

    Hello everyone im back with some good news I read into some of the stuff you guys recommended and looked at P-Phunk’s exercise explanations. I would like to reconstruct my workout so I would like some help. I already posted what I do on Mondays here is what I do on Tuesdays. Take note that this is a back and shoulder workout.

    Dumbbell Shoulder Presses
    set one-40's(10 reps)
    set two-45's(10 reps)
    set three-45's(10 reps)
    set four-50's(6-8 reps)

    Wide Grip Shoulder Presses(machine)
    set one-120(10 reps)
    set two-130(10 reps)
    set three-140(10 reps)
    set four-150(10 reps)

    Dumbbell Lat Raises
    set one-10's(10 reps)
    set two-15's(10 reps)
    set three-15's(10 reps)
    set four-20's(8 reps)

    Dumbbell Front Raises
    set one-10's(10 reps)
    set two-15's(10 reps)
    set three-15's(10 reps)
    set four-20's(10 reps)

    Upright Rows or Shrugs(I will use upright rows as a example)
    set one-45(10 reps)
    set two-65(10 reps)
    set three-75(10 reps)
    set four-85(10 reps)

    BACK

    Behind the neck pull downs and Lat pull downs
    set one-120(10 reps)
    set two-130(10 reps)
    set three-140(10 reps)
    set four-150(10 reps)

    Seated Cable Rows
    set one-80(10 reps)
    set two-100(10 reps)
    set three-110(10 reps)
    set four-120(6-8 reps)

    Hypers and or Hyper Extensions w/e you want to call it
    set one-no weight(15 reps)
    set two-no weight(15 reps)
    set three-25(15 reps)
    set four-25(15 reps)

    That is my shoulder and back routine. After giving you guys this information for my Monday and Tuesday routine I would like some ideas on how to change it. Give note that this is a Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday workout Schedule with Upper body and arms on Monday’s and Thursday’s. While shoulders and back is set aside for Tuesday’s and Friday’s.

    I want to give a push and pull routine a try any workout set up would be helpful. I am looking to train on Monday’s(upper), Tuesday’s(,lower), Thursdays(upper), and Friday’s(lower).

    I want to workout smarter and not longer. I want to achieve overall strength and still get the stuff I need to get toned. If there is any combination for this please let me know. I am somewhat unfamiliar with a push, pull, and legs workout so any information on that would be appreciated also. Thanks a lot and look foward to responses.
