    Monday
    Squats-5x5(Do four progressively heavier sets of 5 with the 5th set being your 5RM.)
    Deadlifts-5x5(Do the same)
    Bench Press-5x5(Do the same)
    i have no incline so i will do front raises or shoulder presses here
    Wednesday
    Light Squats or Lunges-4x8 each leg
    Good Mornings-3x8-12 i will get hwer to do GM's in the future, not in the begining, and i may substitute pullthroughs for them
    Shoulder Press-5x5 or Dips-4xmax until you get 12 each time. then add weight.
    i will have her do face pulls and pulldopwns until i get some bands so she can do assisted pullups

    Friday
    Squats-warmup to a 3 reps with 5 more lbs than you used on Monday. On the following monday use this weight for your 5th set.
    Bent Over Row-5x5
    Incline Bench-5x5 here again, i will look for somethign different
    Tricep Extensions-2x12-20

    other than this, i dunno about the dieting, i am bulking, and i dont eat clean at all, and she cooks most of my food for me. I would just have her eat less, but then she would be hungry, and that would lead her to cheating too much. so i will just try to keep her at 12xbw callories, and have her write down everythign she eats, and just monitor her progress and make adjustments as we go i guess.
    anyone have any other suggestions or ideas, i am open.

    I don't really think that's a mom routine, unless your mom is an aspiring powerlifter :sad2:

    You're one of those people who think girls should stick to cybex machines and "tone" aren't you?

    Not at all :ugh: but it's a hard routine, designed for building a strength base, and I can't see it being the best option for his mom who probably hasn't lifted weights before. Also, it sounds like she's cutting, and it's not exactly ideal for that either...

    Has your mom ever lifted before? I ask because (obviously) this is a very demanding program, and is not necessarily best for people who aren't "addicted" to working out yet. In other words, if it's too hard initially, she will be very inclined to quit.

    So what would you recommend for cutting? High volume isolation work?

    No... low volume compound shit :ugh: but that routine is draining, Monday takes an hour and half easily and that's not really what you want on a cal deficit...

    Any more assumptions? :ugh:

    His mom could spend a couple weeks learning exercises/form then move onto a simple upper/lower body split or something...

    How in the hell does Monday take an hour and a half? It's 15 sets of 5 reps each.

    Because working up to 5RM's on the big 3 requires long rest periods to be done properly? How about you try reading the logs of people who've actually done it, or try the routine yourself before commenting.

    Sorry I only work up to 3RM's or 1RM's almost every day so I wouldn't know anything about that.

    Look at my post, then look at yours. Try to figure out which one is relevent to the thread and which one isn't.


    Oh, and go buy a toothbrush, you fucking yellow-toothed bag of shit.

    You have the arguing and logic skills of a 12 year old. You still havn't made a single point and when confronted with your faulty statements you run off like a bitch.

    Good fucking riddance.

    Did I quote your first post, or make any mention of it whatsoever? Exactly. I pointed out that a female is having great sucess on this routine, and she is in no way an aspiring powerlifter. Your comment of "is her dick bigger than yours" served no purpose.
