Workout routine and recuperation
by jon larsen
Is my routine allowing me to recuperate enough?
Hi, my name is jon, I am 52 years old, always been a closet bodybuilder. At this point I only train chest and arms maybe a little shoulders.
Day #1 chest and alittle delts
Day #2 rest
Day #3 arms 2triceps 8 sets, 2bicep excersises about 8 sets
Days 4 and 5 I rest
Then I start the cycle over.
O for chest I do 2 maybe 3 movements 10 sets and delts 6 light sets.
Am I allowing enough rest time between bodyparts to recup at this age or stage in my life?
Somtimes I dont get a good arm pump on arm day and sometimes my arms look tired and small. Can you help? Answer:
Yeah you're definitely getting enough rest days. You could probably intensify it even more, and still be okay.
Throw in some back exercises, and leg exercises to give you a well rounded physique... just a personal suggestion.
About getting a bump: When you fuel your body with good amounts of protein and carbohydrates 1 hour before your workouts, you get better pumps. The reason for this, is that the muscles have more energy to work with.From: Workout routine and recuperation Back To: Home Page
