my routine part II

Hi, guys

what do you make of my new routine

Bench press

14 Day rest

Deadlifts alternated with Squats (as they are both very stress full on the lower back when respectable weight is being used)

14 Day rest


14 Day rest


14 Day rest

this should take me to my full genetic potential with only the frequency left to alter.

Is anyone training using a similar routine and making progress

canŒt wait to hear your replies


Hi guys,

I have been thinking about my routine and IŒm thinking of making some changes, as I find it very hard to progress on my Pulldown workout, which is 14days after Deadlift workout, my back takes a hammering when I Deadlift, but I really what to keep Deadlifts in my routine. They are hard to incorporate in to a super consolidated routine, because they hit Legs hard as well as Back and they seem to overlap! no matter where put them. They are such a productive exercise I donŒt want to drop them from way workout, any suggestions, I would not mind hearing Hit4lifeŒs opinion on this one as he used super consolidation as his last stop to hitting his full genetic potential, but any suggestions welcome.

Cheers guys…..HIT.

This looks like ultra low volume. Could you be sure you′re heading in the right way?

If I do any more I get sick so I have no choice but to consolidate my routine.

I would alternate deadlifts with pulldowns. I made excellent progress while doing dips, pulldowns, and dips. I was never really receptive to deadlifts because of the very imminent dangers of injury. There is such a tremendous amount of stress placed on the lower back (lumbar region) that many individuals develop problems later on. I never had the experience of utilizing a hammer strength deadlift machine which is constructed with the handles parallel to the body, therefore you don′t have the weight out in front of you and the pain associated with the bar rubbing against your shins. When it comes down to it, I would advocate doing pulldowns over deadlifts, but you can alternate them if your making good progress.

I have to make a correction to my last post. I accidentally listed dips twice. I meant to write it is dips, pulldowns and squats.
