I’m starting my off-season lifting this week and I have been doing a lot of research from Cressey’s website and what has been said by kyleb, LankyLefty, and others on this site. I’m content with most of the program as it follows much of Wolforth’s teachings, but I’m starting to think that our lifting portion could be more efficient.
The workout consists of Monday,Thursday as LB lifts with Tuesday, Friday as UB lifts. Would a Monday, Wednesday,Friday schedule with both UB and LB lifts mixed in be better?
Also, the workouts consist of 2-4 circuits where you go through for example, DB chest press, DB single arm rows, bicep curls, triceps pushdowns, lat pulldowns, should punch press with no rest between exercises but 2 min between circuits. Should there be more rest in there?
Finally, are exercises such as biceps curls, triceps pushdowns, lat pulldowns good exercises for athletes? Would pushups, chin ups, face pulls, inverted rows be a good replacement?
Thanks for the help!
