ok so i just finished my first day of 15's PLEASE DON'T LAUGH AT MY poundage as they are miniscule (but hey according to you guys i haven't had my newbie gains yet and we all have to start somewhere). the routine: 20 total reps clustered (aiming for target reps on first set in any given microcycle) 1A) Dips: 15RM = Body Weight (I can only do 12 unassisted reps at my body weight) 10RM = 23lbs 5RM = 50lbs 1B) Chin Ups: 15RM = Body Weight (I can only do 10 unassisted reps at my body weight) 10RM = 10lbs 5RM = 20lbs 2A) Lying Leg Raises: 15RM = 10lbs 10RM = 11lbs 5RM = 13lbs 2B) 1 Arm Tricep Extension : 15RM = 26lbs (DB) 10RM = 30lbs 5RM = 36lbs 3A) Cross Body Hammer Curl: 15RM = 26lbs (each DB) 10RM = 30lbs 5Rm = 36lbs 3B) Delt Lateral Raises: 15RM = 26lbs (each DB) 10RM = 30lbs 5Rm = 36lbs 4A) Split-Leg Squats: 15RM = 26 (each DB) 10RM = 30lbs 5Rm = 36lbs I performed the exercises in a superset where i rested between each exercise and each set 30-60 seconds. For example i did 1A) then i rested 45sec and did 1B) rest 45 sec and do 1A) etc til i got my 20 total reps. should i not superset these exercises?? 1st Workout Results: 1A) Dips: 15xBW (assisted), 15xBW (assisted) - the second set i just kept going cause i forgot i was only supposed to do 5 more 1B) Chin Ups: 15xBW (assisted), 5xBW(assisted) 2A) Lying Leg Raises: 12x0lbs, 8x0lbs (i couldn't hit 15 reps the first set) 2B) 1 Arm Tri Extension: 15x13lbs, 5x13lbs 3A) Cross Body Hammer Curl: 15x13lbs, 5x13lbs 3B) Delt Lateral Raises: 10x13lbs, 8x13lbs, 2x13lbs (i could not hit 15 reps the first set) 4A) Split-Leg Squat: 8x13lbs, 8x13lbs, 4x13lbs (i could not hit 15 reps the first set) So what do you guys think? i don't feel like i do after my usual workout. i feel like i did half a workout. But i'm sure the 3x frequency will make up for it. AS LONG AS I raise the weight over time and keep the frequency up regardless of my rep scheme i should be good, right? That's the one golden rule i keep reading about. Anything i should change? I'm super stoked about the new bulk cycle though. today could be the first day of me gaining 10lbs of lean body mass. that's my goal. i'm not praying for 50lbs my first bulk. a good 10lbs - 15lbs of LBM would be great. Any input to help me get there would be greatly appreciated!!! thanks guys and have a successful day!
