That program won't do it.

Look at Cressey's book - Maximum Strength.

You spreading your unfounded rumours again?
Even if its true, so what?
Many of the professional sumo champions got their starts from being errand boys of then sumo champions.

That means you are training legs and your major upper body part every 3 days.
Obviously if you are really training hard, you will get fatigue real soon.
If you are not training hard (and why the hell not?), you can do that routine but your gain would be minimal.

Your upper body workout should use incline bench, bent over rows, military shoulder presses, universal bar shrugs, close grip bench and barbell curls.
But if you want to do it properly, you would be exhausted before you even do your shrugs.

You should train all out all the time. It is no excuse to do your routine 3 X 12 sets especially if you got 1 or 2 years training under your belt. You should use advance techniques all the time like supersets, forced sets etc.

In short, your split is wrong. You should workout your bodyparts in 3 workouts and work out each bodypart once a week or 6 days.

BTW at your height, you should be 200 to 220 pounds easy peasy.

You are an idiot as well. You are one of those morons who miss substance over form.

You got that right! I dont know why you want to do machine flyes. If you wanna do flyes, do dumb flyes which stretches and strengthen your breasts than cable crossovers.

Doing one thousand arm exercises like triceps extension, preacher machine etc etc are of less use. Just do close grip bench and barbell curls like what I have advised you and go all out and your arms will be so full of blood, that will do.

When you do full body splits, then you can do more than those 2 arms exercises but those should always be your main core competencies to bulk up the arms.

Yes. Since you posted a mostly worthless program you have to read a whole book. With small type. Or are you looking for someone to sprinkle magic dust on you? lefty P.S. Are you actually asking what the basis of a program called Maximum Strength is?

It's one thing for a young rikishi to serve up chankonabe to the higher ranked sumotori in his stable and another to oil up and make yourself available.

Unfounded rumours! There is no reason for you to assume IFBB pros to be engaged in homosexual activities.
Many are happily married or divorced to be with another. Woman of course!
