    what's wrong with it?

    edit: I used to follow this routine a few years ago.. saw some pretty nice gains, but plateaued after about a year and a half

    edit #2: I usually did 3 sets of everything, though

    i just noticed your deadlift goal seems out of proportion with your squat/bench :mamoru2:

    personally too much volume for chest, but what are your goals? strength, hypertrophy?

    long-term goal: look like Ryan Reynolds (I'm Asian.. being big doesn't look good on my frame)

    short-term goal: gain muscle and strength, whereafter I'll start cutting down

    bench is with dumbbells, for reps

    I used to deadlift like 335 for reps (5x5), and my back has always been my strongest muscle

    my chest can handle that much volume... I'm more worried about back, shoulders, and arms (my shoulders and arms are my weak point)

    Try increasing the weight and lowering the reps. I personally stick to 5-6 reps per set, especially during bulking.

    you should try doing a Max-OT style workout, its kind of like yours where it targets a muscle group once a week, but with lower reps and heavier weight.

    sorry, dumbbells. Same with military press

    I can't do barbells on bench or military. Bad rotator cuff for bench, and no spotter + precarious bar positioning on the military press station

    :ugh:
    You are not bruce lee, doing 100 sets a day is not practiacal or a great idea, scale it back to twice a week at most. Abs like bruce lees are made in the kitchen, not by doing crunches.

    :ugh2: somehow, I doubt he got rock-hard abs by eating well.

    I know I'm not bruce lee, but you guys aren't Dave Tate, so why follow other people's routine?
