Current Training Program 11/2011

My current program is geared towards building strength and mass.  We switch up
our exercises and workouts about every  3-5 weeks, with usually  5-7 days off in

By no means is this program or any of the programs meant to be an exact
blueprint of what to do to reach your goals.  The programs we develop and
usencome from a combination ofnfactors.  we are always looking for different
exercises or variations on exercises.  The equipment available in our gym also
determines what we can do.  Finally, we tailor every program to what works for
us and what meets our needs and goals.  

Use this and other programs as a starting point of ideas and exercises to build
your own program to meet your individual goals. 

Day 1
Back and triceps 

Dumbbell rows 2 x 8-10
Close grip pulldowns 2 x 8-10
Dumbbell overhead extensions 2 x 8-10
Weighted dips 1-2 x 8 x 12 

Day 2
Chest, shoulders and biceps 

Incline smith machine bench press 2 x 8-10
Decline dumbbell presses 2 x 8-10
Dumbbell side laterals 1-2 x 8-12
Preacher curls 2 x 8-10
Hammer curls 1-2 x 8-10 

Day 3

Squats 2 x 6-10 

The sets listed are the heavy, working sets only.  We do a series of warm up
sets before the all out working sets listed above.  

There is usually 1-2 rest days in between workouts and we hit each workout once
a week.

  1. Frank, since I am a novice…Elaborate 1-2 x 8-10, 2 x 8-10 and the likes. Hope my query doesnot irritate you.

    1. Absolutely Ginseng – and you are not irritating me at all. It’s great that you question things and want to know more! It’s how we learn! 1-2 would be teh number of sets for that exercise, while the 8-10 would be the number of reps for each set. Does that clear things up? Let me know!
