@eknight thanks I have read that now, very informative for young people👍🏻. What would you change if you were me ? Do you think that keeping the same reps and sets are a good idea? Thanks for taking the time to help me out.

After re-reading eknights routine for dummies thread, I've re-done my routine and it matches the criteria that he suggests. I would really like to know your opinions on this routine and I know you all know what your talking about.

This is just my upper part, I'm still making my lower part atm:

Bench press. 3. 4-6
Deadlift. 3. 4-6
OH press. 3. 4-6
Inc press. 2. 6-8
Lat PD. 2. 6-8
Lat raise. 2 6-8.
Tricep ex. 3. 6-8
Bb curl. 3. 6-8
The compound lifts focus on functional strength in the 4-6 rep range. Chest, Back and shoulders have 10 sets per week and bicep, tricep have 6 sets per week. Each muscle will be trained x2 a week for optimal growth.

Thanks for any help

@Jreay4 No, not good at all.

2 sets of Lat Pulldowns for back? That's it? Where are the Rows? And where are legs?

Go back to the Routine Design for Dummies thread and re-read point #4. Then use the Day 1 and Day 2 templates to create a routine. It's sitting there plain as day. Just plug in the exercises.

@Jreay4 How can you have read that thread twice, and still put deadlifts on upperbody day?

@Jreay4

If you play for your country's soccer team you should talk to the training coach.

I think you're bullshitting us about that unless you play for a low level team for a low level country.

If you are for real I would recommend telling us your goals first and where you are in your season or off season. Training properly for specific sports like soccer should always take into consideration the individual's goals and timing as it relates to the on or off season.
