Help me with a routine.

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I'm looking to lose weight and get strong but not 100% sure on a routine that would work for me.

 

I'm 118kg, 5'10 and 23yrs old. I would like to get down to 85kg.

 

I've been reading around and see that doing squats, military press, bench press, deadlift and powercleans are the main exercises that people are using.

 

Is that all there is to it or should I be adding in any other exercises or cardio?

 

What should my sets and reps be?

 

Is 3 days a week enough with a day between for recovery?

 

Any help with this would be appreciated, thanks.

I came here and asked the same thing. I ditched my 3 day split routine and adopted a full body compound lifting routine.

 

squats

3 x 10

Bench Press

3 x 8

Military Press

3 x 8

Deadlifts

3 x 5

Bent over rows

3 x 8

dips

3 x max

pullups

3 x max.

 

 

Also starting strength was recommended to me. I heard strong lifts 5x5 is also an OK beginner routine.

 

I am in the same boat as you (losing weight while trying to get stronger). I eat roughly around 2000-2500 cal daily and keep my protein at about 120-150 grams per day. I only lift 3 x a week on non-consecutive days, and occasionally throw in a cardio session on my non lifting days.

 

My lifts are going up and my weight is going down.

 

hope this helps.
