Definition & Frankie-type routine
I'm into my 4th week of the 3x8 routine. Right now I'm doing the following:
Incline Barbell Press
Dumbbell Shoulder Press
Seated Calf Raises(3x12)
Originally I had planned to go into the 5x5 routine, but I think I'm going to hold off on that for another two 12-week cycles since I need to work on my cardio a bit more before attempting the 5x5.
After I finish the 3x8 cycle, I want to go into a program that will yield more definition. I realize that my diet will have to be adjusted, but I'm unsure as to how many exercises per day, and how many days per week.
I still want to be able to do Squats, Deadlifts, SL Deadlifts, etc, since I welcome more practice without going heavy on those particular exercises.
My long term plans are after completing this 12-week cycle of 3x8, I'll start a 12-week cycle of higher rep sets with less weight. Then I'll go back to another 12-week cycle of Frankie's 3x8 routine. After that, I'll start into the 5x5 routine.
Any help is appreciated!
