Ok, so I know this isn't probably the BEST place to ask but I figure some of you probably are into fitness. I lift weights 3x per week when I can. My goal is to get big pecs. They're alright right now, but I want to pump them up. I'm concerned about the effectiveness of my upper body workout though. This is currently what I do: 7 reps; 7 sets regular bench press 7 reps; 7 sets inclined bench press 7 reps; 7 sets decline bench press 7 reps; 7 sets flys (when i can find the energy) Between reps I pause, because obviously I can't lift 7 more reps right away. What's the length of time to wait before beginning again? Just whenever I feel ok enough to? How often do you personally add on more weight? Right now I add about 10 pounds (total) every 3 weeks. Is this about right? Also, lower body. I'm trying to round out my ass. I do lunches holding a 25lb weight. For the first 5 lunges on each leg, I can really feel it. I feel my glutes tightening, but then after that it's hard to feel the "burn" if you know what I mean. I also do squats but I fucking loathe squats so I prefer lunges. What are some other lower body exercises that are good for toning your ass? Thanks for reading, if you know anything for sure I'd love to hear what you think.
