Hey guys, after doing some reading I'm wondering if I should create a brand new routine. I haven't been working out very long, but I obviously want to use the most productive routine as possible.
Currently I do something like this (it's loose, it changes sometimes):
Fridays: Arms (or whatever isn't sore)
Weekend: nothing or just abs
Pretty lousy routine, it seems like. I'm kind of a noob, so everything I've read here (in the stickies) is new to me.
I plan to start doing legs more, and doing some more basic lifts (deadlifts, squats, cleans, etc.). I feel like I might be working out too many days. I'm eating alot more, and focusing more on recovery, but I'm still worried about overtraining. I always try to maintain a super high level of intensity (negatives, sometimes working to failure, etc.), but might that cause overtraining too?
There are so many articles i've read that were probably so misleading, I don't know what to believe.
Also, dumb question...how useful are and how often should I use 5x5 sets?
thanks for the help and tips!
