Ok so I pretty much have a routine where I combined strength and hypertrophy into one and would like you guys to take a look at it and let me know what ya think! Thanks!
(Push) Chest tric shoulder:
Flat Bench Press: 2 sets of 5, then 3 sets of 8-12
Incline press: 1 set of 5, then 2 sets of 8-12
Military shoulder press: 3 sets of 8-12
Upright rows: 2 sets of 8-12
Skullcrushers: 3 sets of 8-12
16 sets total
(Pull) Back and Bicep:
Pullups: 3 sets of 5
Barbell curls: 4 sets of 8-12
Lat Bent rows: 5 sets of 8-12
Hammer curls: 3 sets of 8-12
15 sets total
(Lower) Legs and abs:
Squat: 3 sets of 5
Deadlift: 3 sets of 5
Ab crunches: 3 sets of 8-15
Reverse crunches: 2 sets of 8-15
11 sets total. (I only want my squats and deadlifts to get strength, not muscle mass for now)
I never go to failure on any of my sets or reps. I go shy of 1-2 reps before failure.
I rest about 1-2 minutes between sets.
And I have no rest days. I do Push, pull, lower, repeat. Push, pull, lower etc. Never taking a rest day unless I feel I absolutely need it.
So please tell me what you guys think of this routine. Anything that needs to be added or taked away.
Am I doing enough sets for my muscles?
Should I go to failure on my last sets?
Is this getting me more strength than hypertrophy this way? Or more hypertrophy than strength?
Thanks guys I really appreciate anyone that takes the time to read this and help me out!
