    Not too shabby for a "generic" workout. Plenty of work and it looks like you attacked the pull muscles from every angle.

    Looks like those split squats are making the rounds right now lol. Everybody is using them! Hows life going since the move? Have you found the hour drive to and from the gym a relaxing time?
    You would be surprised just how much time I have to waste.

    I love split squats! No spinal loading but they still hit the quads an glutes pretty hard imo. Life is great since the move! Very peaceful area in the woods on a lake. I actually found that if I train around noon it only takes me 35 mins to get there. Some days work allows this, some days not lol. But yes when I lift at night the hour drive there isn’t bad cause I drink some tea for caffeine on the way. The drive back is nice as it lets my appetite come back up. I typically don’t eat until an hour after training anyways

    Monday 11/23

    Hit a shoulder focused upper body workout today. Really going to try and bring up the shoulders and calves this winter.

    Incline barbell press
    5 x 6 @ 185lbs

    Wide grip pull ups
    5 x 10 BW

    Side raises
    4 x 10 @25lb dumbbells

    Seated Dumbell OHP
    4 x 6 @ 65lb Dumbells

    Barbell shrugs
    3 x 6 @ 275lbs

    AB circuit
    3 rounds:
    15 crunches
    15 leg raises
    15 bicycle crunches

    That’s it. Simple. Lats and chest are way ahead of traps/shoulders. Time to fix that.

    I am slightly jealous of the way you threw a 85x13 incline DB press into that push workout lol. Thats into the fairly heavy range for a 13 rep set then two days later you followed it with a 185x6 for 5 sets on the BB version of that lift lol. Thats just brutal looking for some reason.

    Good luck on equalizing the delts to the lats and chest. It is a hard thing to catch up that muscle group when the bigger muscle groups around it are going to want to take over most of the pushing and pulling you do
    You would be surprised just how much time I have to waste.

    Haha man I can be semi strong (for a 165lb Manlet) when I want to. Ramping up weights like that lets me use heavier weight, but I honestly prefer more volume like the bb incline the other day. 5 straight sets just feels better to me. Also helps keep my ego in check lol. Yeah so I’m thinking I’m just going to cut back on chest and lay work and hit more shoulders and traps for a while. My workouts are going to look very imbalanced for a while!

    Don't worry about what your workouts look like.
    If you plan to compete in the future it is best to bring your lagging body parts up now.
    In MP you want your pecs, delts, lats and arms to flow well with each other.









    Your chest kinda overshadows your delts, Pecs!
    She approached with her hand extended,. I slowly stepped back. "No" she said. "I just want to shake your hand. You're amazingly gorgeous." As she walked by me she copped a biceps feel.

    How steep is your incline?

    The incline press, wg pullups, and laterals are a lot of work by themselves. Throwing them DB presses in after all that is even more impressive. I like the different way you approach these workouts. You put incline bench where most people would, first in the workout, but you save the presses for last as far as delt work. Most people would have that second, then the iso work.

    How does that hit different for you?
    You would be surprised just how much time I have to waste.

    My incline in slightly less than 45 degrees. Not 30 but somewhere in the middle. Maybe 40 degrees? Lol

    Yeah I play around with exercise sequence a lot. If I train chest and shoulders the same day, I start with a bench press variation. That obviously hits the front delts pretty hard. So I give them a rest by hitting side delts, then rear delts, then a front delt exercise. Seated Db press or front raises. Gives them a little break, plus I’d rstjer put more focus on rear/side delts than front.

    I also will probably go back to a bro split for the millionth time because I can use more weight if I train shoulders on a separate day. I’m just trying to set my schedule up so I can lift 5x per week again. I think I figured it out finally haha

    I see. That is a good incline to start with if chest is the focus. I asked because I knew delts was on your agenda for yesterday so I figured you would have had a steep incline to put the load on the front delts. I was not aware you did chest as well.

    That makes sense that you give the front delts a break while doing the two iso's between presses. For some reason I always associate DB presses as more "full shoulder" than BB presses. If you are thinking of them as a front delt focused exercise it does make sense to put them there lol.

    Get that 5th day bro!!! lol I am going for 4-5 days a week consistency as well. How you going to split it up?

    ...
    I like the incline angle. I think it should nrvr nr 45 deg. unless one wants o hit the front delts.

    Regarding delt training. Might I suggest you start with rear delts.. the forgotten/ignored delt...

    Yeah im here for the answer. Sometimes i hit the chest or squats twice a week when i want that 5th day.

    Nice work in here. doing pull ups second then hitting all that work after is solid. If i did pull ups early on it would still be the last thing i do

    Totally agree about incline angle.

    I started with Rear Delts for years. Honestly I think they are ahead of side delts and on par with front delts. Not common, but others have noticed too.

    I’ll most likely split it up
    Chest
    Back
    Off
    Legs
    Shoulders
    Arms
    Off
    Repeat.

    5 exercises each day, 4 sets, 7-12 reps.
    Pretty generic but honestly my physique hasn’t changed much since I stopped training that way. I trained like that for about 3 years before coming on this site.

    Since then I’ve just been messing around lol

    I did 5/3/1 for a while when I first started lifting.

    That makes my calves burn just thinking about it lol. The shoulder work I could see you easily getting on with. You already got a history of high frequency with delt work. Calves would probably respond well since they are a dense, tough muscle anyway.

    Looking forward to see how both shoulders and claves respond to that much work.

    Saturday 11/28/2020 Chest/calves

    I’m going to start giving more details on my training from now on. I honestly didn’t expect anyone to be commenting on this thread but myself lol

    Broomstick shoulder dislocates
    1x20

    30 degree incline Db press
    65s x 10
    75s x 10
    85s x 15 reps (top set)
    45s x 30 reps (drop set)

    Medium grip flat barbell bench press
    135 x 10
    155 x 10
    185 x 9 (top set)

    Decline barbell press
    185 x 10
    225 x 8 (top set)
    135 x 16 (drop set)

    Standing Db bilateral calf raises
    45s x 10
    65s x 10
    75s x 10 (top set)
    45s x 20 (drop set)

    Seated single leg calf raises
    45 x 10
    65 x 10 (top set)
    35 x 20 (drop sets)

    Standing single leg calf raises
    25 x 12
    45 x 12 (top set)
    25 x 24 (drop set)

    Broomstick shoulder dislocates
    1x30 reps

    Ok, so... I start every workout (no matter what) with 20 shoulder dislocates. I also end every workout with 30 dislocates. I have been doing this for a year. My shoulder mobility has improved immensely, and I no longer get any impingement symptoms.

    Now the workout...I call this style of training “top sets and drop sets” lol. No idea about the science behind it, but it works. I ramp up to a top set (usually between 6-12 reps), then I cut the weight in half immediately and do double the reps of the previous set. If you hit 300 for 10 on your top set, immediately drop the weight to 150 and bang out 20 reps. Use the rest/pause technique if necessary. Just get all the reps.

    Incline Db press felt great. Didn’t really expect to hit the 85s for 15, but I’ll take it!
    Flat bench was meh, trying out a different grip. Decline was ok. 225 x 8 isn’t a PR, but it’s decent. Calves...no one cares about calves lol

    Sunday 11/29 Back day

    My favorite back movements right here. Simple workout. In and out in 35 minutes.

    Broomstick dislocates
    1 x 20

    Wide grip pull ups
    BW x 25
    BW x 10
    BW x 10
    BW x 5

    Single arm Db rows
    45 x 10
    65 x 10
    85 x 10
    105 x 10 (top set)

    Neutral grip pulldowns
    210 x 10
    240 x 10 (top set)
    120 x 20 (drop set)

    Wide grip cable rows
    180 x 10
    210 x 10 (top set)
    105 x 20 (drop set)

    Broomstick dislocates
    1 x 30 reps

    Always start back workouts with body weight pull ups. I like to get a pump going before the heavier work. Db rows went great. Never used straps for them until today. Huge chest code! Lol
    Neutral grip pulldowns are my favorite pulldown variation. I try to arch my upper back and pull to the top of my chest.
    Wide grip cable rows really hit my upper back hard. I focus on pausing for a second in the fully contracted position.

    Finally got my schedule together. Work/school schedule makes it difficult. I’m lifting 5 days in a row Saturday-Wednesday with Thursday and Friday off.

    Chest/calves
    Back
    Legs
    Arms/abs
    Shoulders/traps

    Thats a lot of chesticle work lol 85x15 followed by 45x30 sounds like what a guy I knew used to call "destroy and flood". Basically, like your set-up, he would go heavy as possible for a set or two while still keeping himself in the 8-12 range.

    Then he would would go ridiculous high reps like 30-40 for the next few sets, lowering the weight as needed to meet those high reps. Said the blood pump was stupid lol. I see what you mean about the numbers on flat bench suffering a little, but I am not sure you really "lose" anything there. You just put those gains and energy into a slightly different variation of the same movement. If anything your incline work will improve your strength in that movement a lot more efficiently because you have less leverage on the incline press than the flat press.


    Why the odd break down on the pullups? first 25 on the first set, which is awesome BTW. But then you hit 10, 10, 5.... there a method to that madness?
    Solid work on the back day and the 105x10 is a strong DB row, because I know you were keeping that controlled and going for max TUT
    You would be surprised just how much time I have to waste.
