  1. This is my first quest here, as the current quest is nearly finished, this 6-week challenge shall be the one that starts on November 10th. I shall provide an update on how close I am on the first day. MAIN QUEST: Increase my strength so that I am able to lift more than my own bodyweight. Goal 1: Squat with a barbell 110% my own bodyweight (5 sets of 10). Goal 2: Bench press 110% my own bodyweight (5 sets of 10). Goal 3: Bent over row a barbell 110% my own bodyweight (5 sets of 10). Life side quest: As this quest ends on the same day as my semester, my life side quest is to achieve at least 50% on all of my essays due this semester. The bodyweight referred to in each of the goals is that of me at the end of the challenge, not me at the start. Thanks for reading, -SB
  2. I figured since I'm new to the community and have only been lifting weights for about 3-4 months now that I'd share my current routine with you all. The individual workouts were designed by a Personal Trainer based on my goals and what I was able to do around a month ago. Day 1, Push: Bench press (5 sets of 10) Pec fly Push up Cable press Tricep pull down Reverse fly (4 sets of 10 as a superset) Day 2, Legs: Barbell squat (5 sets of 10) Dumbbell lunge Dumbbell step up Barbell glute bridge Leg press (4 sets of 10 as a superset) Day 3, Pull: Bent over row (5 sets of 10) Chin up (assisted if necessary) Pull up (assisted if necessary) Deadlift Bicep curl Push up row (unsure of actual name, you hold dumbbells in the push up position and pull them back) (4 sets of 10 as superset) Day 4, rest After day 4 I repeat the cycle unless I'm feeling particularly sore, in which case I take a second rest day before repeating. It doesn't fit a weekly schedule, instead I just repeat the cycle regardless of day. The exercises in the super sets aren't done in a particular order, I tend to mix it up and it varies depending on what equipment is most available. Any criticisms or advice would be gladly appreciated. Thanks for reading, -SB
