Is this routine suitable? Critique will be greatly appreciated
My stats are as follows:
Generally healthy but can definitley be in better shape.
I have recently lost some weight via a low GI diet and exercise, however, I have reassessed my goals and attitude i would now like to start building muscle and tone my body. I have been following the universal building full body program. I am currently in my last week of the following routine (4 week routine):
Exercise 1: BARBELL CURL -8 reps and proceed immediately to the next
Exercise 2: TRICEPS PRESS - 10 reps, catch your breath, and perform another flushset of 12 reps of each exercise.
Exercise 3: CHEST DIPS - 10 REPS then proceed immediately to next exercise.
Exercise 4: STRAIGHT ARM PULLOVER –Two sets of 12 reps the another flush set of exercise 3
Exercise 5: WIDE-GRIP CHIN-UP to the FRONT
Exercise 6: SQUAT- Two sets of 12 reps
Exercise 7: PRESS – Two sets of 8 reps
Exercise 8: Sit ups- Two sets of as many reps as i can perform
After the four weeks i go back to a progressive workout routine for another 4 weeks.
I do these full body workouts on mon-wed-fri with the other days being a rest day. I am also looking at putting in some mountain biking on the weekend.
Thanks for taking the time to read this.
