I am a student and have a very busy schedule, but I will be able to devote 1 hour 6 days a week. I have weight trained some time ago. Right now I want to get stronger in general and also look good. I ditched my trainer's routine as it consumed lots of time and made a simple template for myself.
Below is the template:
- Day 1/4: Bench, Incline Bench, Flat Dumbell press, db shoulder press, crunches(optional)
- Day 2/5: Squat, Leg curl, Wide grip weighted pull ups, T bar row, deadlift, leg raise(optional)
- Day 3/6: Weighted dips, Tricep push down, Weighted chins, Barbell curl, abs or oblique(optional)
Each exercise I would perform 3-5 sets.
Is it a fine routine or do I need some substitute? I can not add anything extra as time available would not allow more. Edit: 1. Deadlift added to day 2/5 2. Machine shoulder press has been changed to db shoulder press 3. Rep range: Usually 15-20 reps for two warm up sets of Bench, Squat. Free Pull ups(12+), chins(12+), and Dips(30+ reps) before weighted version. Followed by three work sets of around 10-12 reps. For deadlift three work sets of 6-8 reps in increasing order of weight
