Re: Struggling to make improvements


Hi there just really stick to the basics when trying to get some size and strength, I usually start with a very basic program, I come from a different era but I do try and keep with the times, programs looked at in isolation are always fraught with danger of both misinterpretation and people doing things that are not supervised, which unless you are trianing under someone’s watchful eye is a big problem, so to start you off I would look at probably just a lower body push and pull and an upper body push and pull, 3 days a week:

Workout 1

Front Squat


Military Press


Workout 2

Back Squat

Romanian Dead Lift

Incline Bench

One Arm DB Row

Workout 3

Single Leg Bulgarian Sprinters Squat

Good Morning

Bench Press

Bent Over Row

Week 1 – 4 x 6

Week 2 – 5 x 5

Week 3 – 6 x 4

Week 4 – download 3 x 8 at only 60% of the previous week max load and then start the progression again changing exercises if you wish

increasing weight each set or constant load after the first couple of weeks of working out your weights, just concentrate on technique, and I feel you will get bigger and stronger, eat well and recover well sleep is a must, good luck and go well, ashley
