hey guys,

im more or less new to lifting i have been going for a few weeks now an i just wanted to know what ur work outs are?

I usually do:

Back and bi

chest and tri

and legs

but i have noticed when i am doing chest and tri benching and such it also works my tris alot when im working my chest out so when i go to work on my tri's they are already tired so i dont lift as much on both. I was just wondering what your combinations were and if that was ok.

I do a push/pull/squat type routine, and I suggest you do the same. I think it's smarter to train in respect to "movements" rather than specific muscles. Train movements, then train specific muscles for accessory and unilateral work.

Personally, I lift weights for looks mainly and I do plyos etc for functional strength which is useful in mma

You should lose that routine. You should choose a big pull such as pull-ups, a push such as a bench press, some sort of squat - I do pistols. and if you want, a shoulder exercise or an Olympic style lift that works the shoulders.

do these 4 exercises 3-5 times a week for low reps high weight. and add in a neck\forearm exercise each workout.

this is if your looking for maximal strength gains.

If you want to only look strong continue with that sort of split.
