Question Yearly Results

I was just wondering what kind of results should a person, on average, gain in a year? To make things easy and comparable, stick to some of the more popular exercises:

1)Dumbell Shoulder Shrugs
2)Military Press or Dumbell Press
3)Wide Grip Pulldown
4)Barbell or Dumbell Bench Press
5)Barbell Curl
6)Deadlifts
7)Squats
8)Triceps - I'm not going to mention a specific exercise because I don't know which are the most popular.

If you are going to post, thanks for the information, and please state whether it is barbell or dumbell because that could lead to confusion.

Re: Yearly Results

Gain how? Strength? Mass? Are you conditioned already, just starting out? The exercises you use aren't quite as important as getting the full ROM and using good form (and DIET) and using a good weight/rep combination to achieve your goal. For bodybuilding, some of the nuances of muscle detail warrant use of specefic moves, but for general needs, use what you like and change up the routine often - so long as you hit each muscle group you should see gains. It's pretty simple.

Re: Yearly Results

Let's say a person who is already conditioned who is lifting for both strength & mass, while meeting dietary requirements and lifting properly. This question was more intended to induce people to share their own personal yearly results.

Re: Yearly Results

I used:

Bench
Dips
Military Press
Upright rows
chins
wide grip chins
bent over rows
Squats
Deadlift

Put on about 20lbs a year of lean muscle for about 2 years (170-210). (in dimensions it was 2.5-3in on my arm per year) every 2-3 months I'd do alternate versions of each exercise (barbell to dumbell and back for most) to keep my body stimulated. As for strength gains, I found that for every 5 lbs of muscle I packed on, about 25lbs on my bench came with it.

any questions? ask

talk to ya later
