It depends on what sort of gym it is - if its mainstream, then yeah, many will just go and try and claim your space, but if its a b-building gym, then most all in there will know the deal re. supersets, and should cut you slack as you will inevitably do for them when they use the technique.

See how you get on, but if its not viable, then we can work around it for the legs, upper body shouldnt be a prob, as you can usually secure 2 sets of 'bells at a time.

Update: Things have been going pretty well lately. I'm still increasing in weight on the majority of the exercises, little by little. I switched things around a bit; instead of flat bench, I'm doing weighted dips; instead of barbell rows, I'm doing single-armed dumbbell rows; and instead of front squats I'm doing back squats.

Haven't been on this forum in quite some time...seems pretty dead.

Still adding a little weight to the bar. Should I keep the routine 'til I'm no longer adding weight or change it up after almost 6 months?

Change is always good. That said, injury and boredom are the two biggest factors in routine changes for me.

Yeah I think now would be a great time to start something new. It's the start of the summer and it would make me 10x more enthusiastic about hitting the gym hard this summer.

Maybe throw in a set of Tabata protocol? I used to do routines on the heavy bag, and occasionally did them with weights, too. Or maybe some plyometric jumps and pushups? Toss a heavy bag or medicine ball? Your routine looks pretty good to me, just spitballin' here.

Yeah I'm just looking to mix it up, I'm open for all suggestions. I'm kind of tired of superset; at least before the big exercises.

I can do that, but what I would suggest is, after 3 years of consistent logging and discussion of your training with myself and others, that you have a go at devising your own workout, based on what you have learned not only about exercise, but also about what has worked for you over this time.

You have the knowledge and the experience, so now you need to find the confidence, and also the ability to put it all into practice.

Post what you come up with, and I will happily have a look at it for you smile
