Weights

Going to be doing my routine once a week on a wednesday so what do you think of my weight routine?

Squats- 3x5
Deadlifts- 3x5
Military press- 3x5
Close-grip bench press- 3x5
Bent-over rows- 3x5

Seems like a waste of a training day if you're looking to perform resistance training sessions that are conducive to physical conditioning for army basic training in 2 months time (going by your previous posts).

Depends whether you're after strength or muscular endurance.

Might benefit from upping the number of sets per exercise to 5 and the number of reps to between 8 and 10.

Only if he wants to become a bodybuilder, which I doubt. 3X5 Will build strength and power. 5X10 Will cause him to bulk up.

How things have changed - I just turned up with a couple of bottles of Port hidden in my suitcase and 400 Silk Cut to get me through the first five weeks.

As has already been said, it depends on your goals whether this is a good routine or not.

Tell us what you are aiming to do, and you will/ should get some sensible/ helpful answers :)

Reps are fine, but do normal Bench Press instead of Close Grip. And do Pull-ups instead of Bent Over Rows.

And as 'Wolf said, do the routine twice a week, not once. :wink:
