Thank you Ryan & Matt. I finally understand now and I think the push /pull program will be more consistent than the program I was having. Sometimes with my program, I always get very tired after doing 4 exercise (especially after squats or deadlifts) and would do lighter weights for the remaining. W...

Hi Matt,

I like the idea of the of option C because I think it works the same muscle 3 times a week in 2 ways (push / pull). To me the program applies to hypertrophy values. Correct me if I am wrong.

Thanks for all of your experience advice.

TimD, I am into strength so I will probably increase the weight and lower the reps but just how much reps is enough? Should I lift to failure?

Cheers

Thansk for reply.

I will try to do chest in my next workout.

I do chest press because I do not have the equiments. I have dumbell though.

Is dumbell bench press better than lever chest press?

Cheers everyone
