Re: Sculpting & Shaping CF routines

The old time York weightlifters used to take a break from the Olympic lifts in August focus on "bodybuilding" for a month of two. This was the most popular routines.

Squat 10x10
Pullups 10x10
Bench press or Dips 10x10
Overhead press 10x10

2-3 days per week and use an appropriate load. The weight stayed the same for all sets. As an example the more advanced men worked up to 100+ lbs for the pullups.

Also have a looks for the "Complete keys to Progress" for sensible old time bodybuilding routines

Re: Sculpting & Shaping CF routines

You might want to do starting strength by Riptoe. For enjoyment and enlightment, check out our discussion thread, on "I just want to look good naked". There may be some joking around, but, there's valuable information in it. While cf doesn't have "sculping and shaping" routines, the body goes through tremendous transformation. Take the advice on good nutrition and rest, and read and consider Starting Strength. We have some discussion threads on encorporating that into our routines also.
CF builds body, mind, and spirit. The building and "sculpting" to which you refer will be healthier, safer, and longer lasting done in the CF way, than most body-building routines. In fact, one of our threads cites CF written about in a muscle-fitness magazine, May 2008 issue. Good luck!

10x10 is excessive.. especially when you can get results with like say 3x5.

Re: Sculpting & Shaping CF routines

You're really going to want to spend some quality time with the search engine and get a better idea of what CF is, otherwise you'll be at a pretty big disadvantage when posting. There's so much high quality information in the archives, you could be learning new stuff for days on end.

Re: Sculpting & Shaping CF routines

Jacob,

What are your stats? How much do you weigh and how tall are you and what is your goal. I know it has been several months since you first posted but don't give up.
