I posted this late in another thread but I didn’t get any input so I thought it would be better to make a new thread just in case.
Right now I do two total body per week, typically something like…
bent over row
I usually go heavy on the leg movement in one of the weeks workouts, then heavy on the upper body movements in the other weeks workout
I’ll do that twice a week, for 3 or 4 weeks and then after a 3 week load and 1 week deload change the exercises and repeat ie
But for off season, if I add a 3rd full body session (because the volume and intensity of my cardio and wrestling will be way down) how should I cycle the exercises?
should I continue as I have been doing, keeping the same 3 excercises for 4-5 week waves then completely change or should I do something more like this…
Bench Heavy 1-5
Shrug reps 8+
Deadlift reps 5
Rows heavy 3-5
Romanian deadlift 5-8
incline bench reps 8+
Squat heavy 1-5
chins reps 8+
dips reps 8+
then after 4-5 week wave change up the exercises again and change the focus of which exercises I go heavier on, or is that too much variation?
My main question is, should I keep the 4 exercises the same for all 3 workouts in the week for a few weeks (old plan) or should I change up the exercises throughout the week (new plan)?
