Last Workout Before Xmas
Well tonight was my last training session before Xmas, next time i'm able to get my sorry ass in the gym is the 28th, as both mine are shut over the festive period. Im slightly concerned i may go insane and do something silly like, go for a run
Anyway because of this and one of the articles i read on hear last night, i decided to do a full body work out rather than split. Here's what i did:
Bench 5x5 100kg
Military Press 5x5 45kg (too easy)
Weighted Chins (various) 5x5
Superset Skull Crushers/Tricep Pressdowns 10x3 30kg/32.5kg
Tripleset (?) Cable Bicep Curls Close Grip/Wide Grip and Hammers All sets of 10x2 50Kg/50kg/15KG
Felt remarkably good afterward, just wondered what everyones thoughts on this are, if its gonna work well i may base my new routien on it next year.

Ok, I was confused because I thought you were thinking about basing a full body routine around this workout.
If I were going to comment on this routine in isolation, then I would say to concentrate on compound movements in favor of direct arm work. I'm not saying you can't do some, but I would cut back. In general, for full-body routines, it is better to concentrate on multi-joint movements to stimulate more muscle overall.
Add a rowing movement for back thickness. Preferably barbell rows. This will hit your bi's again anyway.
Then reavaluate how much arm work you wanna do.
Other than that I don't know what else to say since I don't know what your plans would be if you were going to do full body all at once.
Did you look at the DFT 5x5 sticky in the training forum? Lots of good examples in there.

Forget that. Today was my last workout until next Tuesday.
I’m taking the four days off and I’m happy about it to.
I’ll probably go hiking on my off time and enjoy the outdoors

Sometimes, the only way to take time off to recover from the gym is if it's forced! Don't worry, you'll come back stronger. We always do!
