Today I made a few changes to my routine. My normal workout days are Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Back/Bi, Chest/Tri, Legs and then Shoulders is how its split on those days. Results weren't slowed down by the monotony of the previous routine but I was feeling bored. Feeling restless, I decided rather than sleeping in on a Sunday morning to get up and hit the weight room. The whole time on the treadmill I couldn't figure out if I wanted to stick with a routine where on each day the muscles I worked complimented each other. For whatever reason I remembered reading sometime ago about Sergio Oliva's routine. Opposing groups supersetted is how he made his gains. By the time I finished my first exercise for my back. I decided to go with that and see where it takes me. This is what I did.
Barbell Rows 6-6-10-10
Cable Rows 10-10-10
Pullups 6-6 (Lats were on fire at this point)
Incline Dumbbell Presses 6-6-6-8-10
Incline Flyes 12-12-12
Dumbbell Pullovers 12-12-12-12
High Cable Flyes 12-12-12
Dips 10-8 (This time chest was on fire)
Definitely more than whats necessary. But like I said earlier, I had ample energy and didn't want to waste it sitting around. Mixing it up this way really helped spice things up in the gym. I think the next time around I'll drop the Incline Flyes and Cable Rows. I've also decided instead of going strictly 4 days a week I would simply go 2 days on 1 day off and repeat it. 5 days a week with at least one workout being done twice a week. I'll make sure to blog what I do for the remaining 3 workouts.
