Calf raises: 10-15 reps
Skull crushers: 8-10 reps
Tricep pushdowns: 8-10 reps

Wednesday:
Deadlifts 8-10reps
Lat pulldowns 8-10reps
bent-over or seated rows: 8-10reps

Friday:

I don't body build, but keep the squats. I'll let the rest of RS regulars chime in but Squats>db lunges.

i know, but thats why i wanna ad another exercise with the db lunges to replace squats.. the squat rack at fitness world isnt like the one i use to use at planet ice.. where there is a bar down below so incase you can lift the weight up, you can go down without injury.. and i like to do it myself, id perfer not asking people for spots unless its bench press or something

I am confused.

Do you mean the power rack? Or, the smith machine? There should be pins for the power rack regardless. If there are no pins, to bail out of a back squat, you just hop forward. But I understand that the fitness world crowd will probably think you are a freak.

Not sure what you mean by going down without injury. Not telling you to squat atg but below parallel is doable for body builders.

i think he just doesnt want to be the guy bailing out of a squat.


you could do leg presses that will work your legs almost as much as a squat, but you wont gain the core strength or little stabilizor strength from it.

It's not the steroids that makes the champion but it's hard training .. dedication, the diet and sacrifice and genetics that person has.. what makes the champion.

RS.net, where our google ads make absolutely no sense!

stick to one movement each workout.. keep it simple. Push (chest/shoulder/tri) pull(back/bi) and legs. no point in doing shoulders on leg day.
