    First off, I want to thank Big Mikey for helping me get this training thing started, he he hasn't made it easy :p

    Chest, Shoulders, Triceps:

    pushups: 2 sets to failure
    Flat bench press: 3 sets of 8-10 reps
    Incline bench press: 3 sets of 8-10 reps
    Pushups: 2 sets to failure

    Seated dumbbell military press: 3 sets of 8-10 reps
    Lateral raises: 3 sets of 6-9 reps

    Bench dips: 3 sets to failure
    Behind the head dumbell extensions: 2 sets of 8-10 reps

    It doesn't look like fun! I'm taking about minute and a half between exercises, 'cause you know... I'm a big wimp.

    Anyway, when Big Mikey does post on this thread, can you please thank him for me?

    Oh, and I named it "Out Muscled" because a guy I was rolling with and we were fighting for a guillotine/guard pass. And he said "You can't out muscle me, use technique".

    What's your objective with this routine?

    Put on muscle/weight without sacrificing too much speed/power.

    AndrewTheAndroid A hero for fun.

    As long as you are lifting explosively then you won't have to worry about that. In fact it will help make you faster and more powerful.

    Yeah, Mikey also put in the body weights for that reason also.
     
  9. With a 30 Kg bar, you don't need to worry too much about muscle bulk and weight.... push on, you'll see your speed increase as well! :)


    Osu!

    Done the excersizes. I was struggling quite about, finding it a bit harder to type.

    I'm not sweating at all though? Is that normal? I sweat when I'm at class. :/
     
  11. Don't worry, you'll sweat working the larger muscle groups... :D


    Osu!

    How much previous lifting experience do you have?
     
  13. Pretty In Pink

    Pretty In Pink Moved on MAP 2017 Gold Award

    Not a lot, never been too serious about it until now.

    Good hydration, rest/sleep, decent diet, follow Mikey's training plan = success.

    Sounds so simple.

    It does. Haggis and tatties is healthy... Right?

    Have you considered doing Starting Strength or Stronglifts 5x5?

    These are focused more strength than hypertrophy, but as a beginner you should see some big gains in both strength and size from them. They're very popular programs and a lot of people have had success with them. (Though I would avoid any of the versions of Starting Strength that include power-cleans, unless you have access to a good coach for that lift. Getting some coaching on your squat is a good investment as well.)

    How good for you is it if I cycle about 8 miles a day?

    It's 4 miles to class 4 miles back, but it's pretty much flat the whole way, only slight inclines and declines. :/
