About Daily Workout Routines

My trainer trains us (yes, we train in a group of 3-4) everyday with different workout routines everyday, every week! According to my trainer, that is the way to truly make good gains by shocking your muscles and no allowing it to adapt to any of the workouts.  Before you start, few tips and rules I would like to mention:

  1. I would strongly recommend you to have a workout partner to spot you (3 will be the best number) if you are going to follow these routines.
  2. Yes, you are allowed to modify the routines to your preferences,say if you are on your first or second week of gym. Or else you can go only heavier, but never go lighter. You can only increase reps, not decrease them.  If you cheat, you are only cheating yourself!
  3. I am not a very strong person. I only can only bench 100lbs and I cannot do pull ups without support. So if you can do better than me at those, you have got no excuses for not being able to do the workouts in my workout routines. If I can do it, why can’t you?

Moving on to the format of my Daily Workout Routines (DWR) post:

Circuit: We do circuit training. Each circuit consist of few exercises which is to be done in a sequential order. For example, if a circuit consist of three exercises namely pull ups, chin ups and dumbbell rows, three  sets for each exercises. This means you will have to do the first set of pull ups, to chin ups and then to dumbbell rows and move on to the second set of pulls ups, chin ups  and so on till the three sets are completed.

Reps: Numbers represent repetitions. Commas separate repetitions for each set. For example, 20, 30, 40. It means first set 20 reps, second set 30 reps and third set 40 reps.

Weights: Amount of load you will have to lift.
