    got this routine off the post above, just chose a few and read them over and this one seems like a good one, any advice??

    Day 1
    Sets: 6
    Reps: 3
    Load: 6RM (rep max)
    Rest: 50 seconds between sets
    Exercises: Dips, Front Squats, Chin-ups, Leg Curls and Seated Calf Raises*


    Day 2
    Off: Perform 10 minutes of medium-intensity aerobics, if desired. Rope jumping and jogging are excellent choices.

    Day 3
    Sets: 5
    Reps: 5
    Load: 8RM
    Rest: 60 seconds between sets
    Exercises: Flat Bench Presses, Deadlifts, Bent-Over Rows, Skull Crushers, Donkey Calf Raises and Barbell Curls

    Day 4 Same as Day 2

    Day 5
    Sets: 4
    Reps: 6
    Load: 9RM
    Rest: 70 seconds between each set
    Exercises: Incline Dumbbell Bench Presses, Back Squats, Upright Rows, Close-Grip Bench Presses, Standing Calf Raises and Preacher Curls



    Day 6 and 7
    Off (Perform aerobics on one of the two days if desired.)
    * These exercises are excellent choices, but feel free to substitute with a similar movement.




    just a question, what is 6RM, 8RM, 9RM?? :o

    My av is so small you can't see it!
    RM - rep max. The maximum amount of wieght you can do per certain amount of reps. Maybe use a 5 x 5 instead of the 6 x 3? Ive never heard of 6 x 3 before.

    RM = rep max

    i.e. 6RM would be the most weight you could complete 6 repetitions of

    how bad is it that i just do back squats instead of front squats, is there a major change in the muscle groups used??
