do you fail at the rep range you listed or do you just kinda stop?  I'm wondering what you're mindset is in coming up with this routine.

Do you understand his sets/rep scheme? No matter how much I read it, it looks like 1 set of five reps with this and that, etc. I don't get it.  Huh

 i only count working sets,each exercise has 3-5 warm-up sets.
this training cycle i have been focusing on deadlifts and the 3 pressing exercises,while just maintaining a set level on the others.
i have two more weeks of hard training,before backing off for 2-3 weeks before starting again.
i have not decided what to focus on yet.

top sets on the 3 pressing exercises are taken to failure,deadlifts i aim for 5-8 reps.

i also warm-up each work-out with 3x10 of chin-ups.

go to a 4 or 5 day split with higher volume. 12-20 sets per bodypart.

I agree; step up the frequency, hit each muscle twice weekly AND ensure that the intensity is kickass otherwise don't be surprised if nothing much happens. Wink 5-8 sets per muscle based on muscle size, each set intense AFTER/not including warmups.

That's also assuming there's protein taken in between meals.

may21st,

dips  1x12-bodyweight+20lbs
seated tricep extension  1x11-70lbs

regarding the advice i have recieved,i cannot train each bodypart twice a week as i do not recover very well,my legs are very sore and it hurts to walk properly(may22nd) and they will be sore until friday so how can i train them twice a week?and this is the same for all bodyparts.

go once a week per muscle group (direct training), with high volume. 4-5 day split.

Why do you have it split like that? Just curious. Doing the total body thing? Good numbers man! Keep it up!

I don't know....I don't think he's really doing a bad thing limiting his sets at this point, might want to spice it up a little with some different movements but it's my opinion that 90% of the guys I see training in the gym are doing things that they shouldn't be doing just to do them.  Why is a dude that weighs 115lbs and is 6 feet tall doing concentration curls with the 25lbers?  I dont' get it.

I say keep going like he is for a little while longer than re-assess the situation.

june 1st.

deadlifts  1x7-305lbs
high incline barbell press  1x10-150lbs
barbell rows  1x9-175lbs
dumbell hammer curls  1x7-50lbs

felt good,strong.improved on everything so am pleased with the way things are going.

i believe that most people would be bigger and stronger if they stopped wasting there time on exercises that will not get them anywere.
how many times have you seen guys training arms doing set after set and they cannot bench 200lbs,they will never get big arms that way.u have to get stronger on the basics
u won't see a guy u cannot bench 200lbs with a muscular 20inch arm,you will see  that on a guy who uses a lot more.
i keep my sets low to aid my recovery,i overtrain very easily.
so that is why i am focusing on the basics,also i am limited by what i can do as i train at home.
