Usually ill do sumthing like Chest + triceps and do 3 sets of 12 or 10 on chest, dumbell press, then do like pyramid set on bench pressing usually i only go up 3 weights, ill go on to flys then 3 sets of 10
Tricep ill go on the wire machine that tricep pull down exercise ill do 4 sets of 12 and ill do w,e after that like my abbs

i move on to my shoulders bicep and lats then the next day or wen eva i go again
but im finding that these curls im doing dont give me the results i want mainly my fault because my biggest problem is i dont stick to me exercises BUT i want to bulk up my body without loosing any speed or sharpness in my movement if that makes any sense?? i dont want big heavy hands i wont fast striking ones but with a decent amount of muscle mass (if im making sense)

im also looking for a new gym routine for wen i start training after christmas, im mainly lookin for overall body power mainly in my shoulders triceps for a more power swing on my punch (i work on my punch bag and have pads aswell for accuracy)

i hear cleans press is the best exercise for power? and pull ups are great but i wont sum power training that are good for muscle building aswell like focused curls (if u understand me)

anyone got a small list they will to post up? iv read that list above but are there any more good exercises??
and btw whats a dead lift??

thnks
Cleans are good for explosiveness, but you shouldn't go heavy til you get good form cause you can mess up the back. And what are deadlifts you ask? Only the greatest excercise ever created!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Just go look how to do them at BB.com or Eryx.com.

I LOVE Squats (they really build the ass) and as Sports Science showed by using Rampage Jackson as an example, alot of punching power comes from the ass. Also, having tree trunks for legs (tyson griffin) is damn good thing to have

Hell ya man. If you love squats you should also try OH Squats. They work your legs great as well as your core!




What a stud
