Hope I'm not asking too much here. But if you care to review my new workout scheme, here it is:

5 sets of 5, increasing weight from first set to last. When I can do the full 5 sets I bump up the starting weight. After 3 weeks of 5x5, I'd do one week of 2x10 with similar increases. When the one month cycle is complete, switch to Workout 'B' and repeat the same set and rep scheme. Take a week off and start Workout 'A' again.

WORKOUT “A”

MONDAY
DB Squat

DB Flat Press
DB Flys

Pull-Ups
V-Bar Cable Row

DB Calf Raise
Cable Crunch

WEDNESDAY
Cable Deadlift
Cable Shrugs

BB Military Press
Lateral Raise

BB Curl
Concentration Curls

FRIDAY
DB Squat

DB Flat Press
DB Flys

Chin-Ups
BB Row

Cable Calf Raise
Weighted Crunches

WORKOUT “B”

MONDAY
DB Split Squat

DB Incline Press
DB Decline Press

V-Bar Pull-Ups
Lying DB Row

DB Calf Raise
Bicycle Crunches

WEDNESDAY
BB Deadlift
BB Shrugs

Arnold Press
DB Raise

DB Curl
Cable Curl

FRIDAY
DB Split Squat

DB Incline Press
DB Decline Press

Wide Grip Chin-Ups
T-Bar Cable Row

Cable Calf Raise
Decline Crunches


Thanks for your input.

Note: No heavy squats for now, as I am easing back into leg work after minor knee surgery.
