    Weights: Err on more, or on,less?

    Shop Now
    Hi PBers. So ive paired down my routine for weights to twice a week:

    Day 1: chest x 6 sets, full body x 4 (ex. squat), delts x 3, abwork.
    Day 2: lats x 7, traps x 1/2, biceps x 1/, abwork (ex. planks)

    Is this good enough assuming doing it hard and primal nutrition with occasional sprints?

    My goals are gym session of 40 mins max, no gut over belt, feel good, and ues firm biceps and pecs. Im male and 30.

    I used to live in gym, pre primal. I don't know if to add one or two more weight days, or to extend the sessions to 1hr+.

    Go ahead and extend the sessions, you are ONLY going to BENEFIT. I love primal as much as anyone else but some people are taking it as gospel

    I would up the intensity and lower the number of sets. Intensity(effort) trumps volume every time.

    Does your strength, size, body composition and/or muscle endurance improve with this workout regimen? If yes, then obviously you shouldn't make any changes.

    Progression is all that matters.
