View Full Version : Heavy day on the FB split

I have been doing T's FB routine for a while now & I am finding that on the heavy days (5x6), I have NO energy & by the end of the routine I am getting sloppy, tired & just want to get out of the gym as fast as I can. I am wondering if I maybe need to change up my routine....maybe I am just getting bored with it? How can I change it up?
Also, if I keep it the way it is, I am wondering if I could eliminate the CDL's? which would shorten the heavy day & maybe I could get through it better.

Any suggestions?

There's too much volume on that day. Squats and DLs in the same session for 30 heavy reps each isn't the best of ideas.

Though I don't like the idea of 120 reps in a session in the first place.

I'd probably take something out as well.

Mind you, most people that have done that aren't even intermediate trainers and I doubt have the ability to generate the kind of intensity that someone like you or I could.

If I didn't completely remove an exercise, I'd decrease the volume on the deads and military press.

I find it amusing that you think there is too much volume on that day...since you are the one who made up that routine! ;)

Thanks for telling me something I wasn&#39;t aware of.

It must be one of the most amusing things I&#39;ve ever heard.

I&#39;ll patiently wait for you to create a routine for the rest of us. Thanks, much appreciated.

The squats and deads on the same day was a problem for me. I simply changed that by moving them to another day.

Actually, I told somebody that was too much volume on O2, without recognising that it was the sample program. I was thinking "well constructed, balanced...lots" :lol: I got in trouble for saying that :oops:

I don&#39;t have any trouble getting through the workout - panting and swearing (oops, I mean sweating), but I am wiped in the evening and I am still a little tired today. I attribute this to the fact that I am lifting heavier than before and using the bigger muscle groups.

I sweat like the devil with this FB routine. A lot more than when I was doing 2 body parts. Maybe cuz not used to change in sets and reps. Whatever seems to be working&#33;

Just found this routine after looking for it. That first day looks rough, I probably wouldnt be able to keep that up for too long.

Personally, I would the last two movements and call it a day. Id probably cut some volume on day 3 too, depending on how I felt.

My question would be: Are you eating enough to fuel the workout and your daily needs???

I&#39;m not eating as much as I probably should. I&#39;ve started upping my cals slightly this week, so I&#39;ll see if that helps. Thanks.
