depends what results you want really. to me it looks rubbish as you'll end up with a toned top torso but puny legs. at least put the leg exercises first - they will help the rest of you grow. having them towards the end of your routine doesn't make any sense - you won't be able to give them the dedi...

Hi Marko - interesting plan.

i agree. you probably have found the same thing with your calf muscles also. some people have muscles that cover their whole lower leg, others have a golf ball which is found just below the knee. it's genetics i'm afraid - and no amount of weight training is going to change that with any pleasing de...

try press-ups or bech press superset with cable cross-over flye. this won't make you massive as you wont be able to lift anywhere near the weight you need to grow by supersetting. but it will give you a good pump.

I've been training 4/5 times per week for about 7 years and consider myself intermediate/advanced for most exercises. i'm constantly changing my routines in...
