I'm pretty new to the whole weightlifting thing, I think the first time I actually did a workout was last November. I used to be really sloppy with a workout plan and wasn't really paying attention to steadily increasing weight until this summer began. The plan I use currently is attached. This was made mostly by a friend of mine with a few edits based on some personal preferences.
So basically, each month the weight you used for your 3x8 on the FLAT BARBELL BENCH PRESS the previous month should be the weight you use for your 3x10 and etc. For me there's a 10lb difference for between my 3x10,8,5 and 3. I was just wondering if a 10lb increase each month is enough? Should I be pushing for more?
WARNING: Extremely weak lifts ahead.
I am on the 4th week of my 2nd month on this thing, and I began by doing around 105lbs for 3x3 before the summer and was able to do 125 for 3x3 this monday.
Any suggestions on the plan as a whole would be greatly appreciated.
PS. The cardio in the final weeks too much? I lost quit a bit of fat in the first 2 months (2 inches of my waist), but I'm thinking about lowering the cardio.
