    Best Compund Exercises? Routine?

    I want to do compound type stuff to maximize workouts. I know Bench, Squats, are musts, but what about other compound movements?

    I was thinking an EOD split like this...

    Bench
    Squats
    Bent Barbell Row

    SLDL
    Barbell Military
    Lunges

    I'm sure I'm missing something or screwed up somewhere. I just don't want to end up overworking a muscle group.

    Any Suggestions?

    IMO Star/Madcows 5x5 is the best.

    Re: Best Compund Exercises? Routine?

    Squats are definitely musts. When they get stale add in some Front squats if you'd like. Squats are much more of a compound exercise than lunges, you should do squats every workout and add 5 pounds or so to the bar each time until you can't, then add variety like front squats.

    I'm personally a Squat, push, pull every workout kind of guy. For the pushes, you could have bench, presses (or militaries), push presses... for the pulls you could have cleans, deadlifts, Glenn pendlay rows! (just like a row but you drop the weight to the floor every rep), pullups...

    With your split, I hate Body builder splits with a passion lol. Here's a good link to start a SERIOUS workout template: http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=998224

    IMO that's where it should all start. If you've never done anything like that before DO IT and milk the gains of progress workout to workout. Don't think you're experienced enough because you've been training for 4 years and have a max bench of 225 or something lol (not to take offensively, just proving a point about some people i see in the gym that workout everytime i'm there and they are stuck at the same weight for years) Hope this is helpful info!

    Re: Best Compund Exercises? Routine?

    I wanted to add one more thing, with the Starr template, it's absolutely great. Although he only has it for the intermediates and advanced athletes. The intermediates bump weight up every week and the advanced atheletes bump it up every 8 or so weeks simply because they can't make faster gains. Workout to workout progress is the way to go until it doesn't work anymore. Make sure it doesn't work anymore lol then go to the intermediates template of weekly progress.
