    Question Should you finish the sets in one exercise before moving onto the next?

    I searched for the answer to this but couldn't find one.

    Basically what I wanna know here is should I do all my sets of bench press before moving onto a different movement (say tricep kickbacks) ???
    I'll tell you my chest & tricep day and you can see what I mean..
    I do 8-10 reps on each, here we go:
    Dumbbell chest flies, straight into dumbbell benchpress, over to skull crushers then tricep kickbacks, then I rest for 90 seconds and do it again until I've done 5 sets of each.
    I also have a leg day and a back, shoulder & biceps day.
    Hope that makes sense...
    I've been doing the same kind of training for the whole time I've been lifting. I am building muscle doing this but I think it may also be from the beginner effect since I've only been lifting for 6 months. I just don't want to continue doing this if it's going to delay my gains. Please help me out here & thanks!!! :-)

    bump id like to know too I do all mine consecutive, before i move on to the next exercise, example all sets of my bench press then move on to incline complete all sets then move to tricep movements etc,
    Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.

    Personal preference and how your routine is set up. There are many ways to organize your workout.

    From the "Weider Methods of Training":

    WEIDER PRINCIPLES TO HELP YOU ARRANGE YOUR WORKOUT

    1. Set System Training Principle (Performing one set per bodypart was the old way; the Set System calls for multiple sets for each exercise in order to apply maximum adaptive stress)

    2. Superset Training Principle (alternating opposing muscle group exercises with little rest between sets)

    3. Compound Sets Training Principle (alternating two exercises for one bodypart with little rest between sets)

    4. Tri-Sets Training Principle (Doing 3 exercises for one muscle group with little rest between sets)

    5. Giant Sets Training Principle (Doing 4-6 exercises for one muscle group with little rest between sets)

    6. Staggered Sets Principle (injecting 10 sets of boring forearm, abdominal or calf work in between sets for (say) chest or legs)

    7. Rest-Pause Principle (using 85-90 percent of your max, do 2-3 reps and put the weight down. Then do 2-3 more, rest, 2-3 more and rest for a total of 3-4 rest-pauses. The short rest-pauses allow enough time for ATP to be resynthesized and permit further reps with the heavy weight);

    8. Muscle Priority Principle (Work your weaker body parts first in any given workout; alternatively, work the larger muscle groups first, while you?re fresh and energy levels still high)

    9. Pre-Exhaustion Principle (example: superset flies, a chest isolation exercise, with bench presses, a compound exercise involving triceps and chest, in order to maximize chest development by pre-exhausting the triceps)

    10. Pyramiding Training Principle (start a bodypart session with higher rep/low weight and gradually add weight (and commensurably reduce the reps), ending with a weight you can do for 5 reps or so)

    11. Descending Sets Principle (lighter weights from set to set as fatigue sets in --0 called "stripping")

    12. Staggered Sets Training Principle (stagger smaller, slow-developing body parts in between sets for larger muscle groups)

    13. Instinctive Training Principle (Eventually, all bodybuilders instinctively attain the ability to construct diets, routines, cycles, intensity levels, reps and sets that work best for them)

    I super set my workouts. Ill do a set of incline, dips, decline bench, and go back through it again till im done. Then I do a burnout of flat BB bench. Every workout I switch which workouts I super set and use a diff. burnout

    With the exception of arms (for which I superset), I complete all of my sets in blocks before moving onto a new movement.
    Bodybuilding is 60% training and 50% diet. Yes that adds up to 110%, because that's what you should be giving it. Change the inside, and the physique will follow.
