Jay Cutler's Beginner Routine

Day 1 Working Sets
(sets x reps)
Barbell Bench Press 3 x 8-10
Incline Barbell Bench Press* 3 x 8-10
Flat Bench Dumbbell Flyes 3 x 8-10
Close-Grip Bench Presses 3 x 8-10
Lying Cambered Bar Extensions 3 x 8-10
Straight Bar Cable Pushdowns 3 x 8-10

* Every other workout, alternate Incline Barbell Bench Presses with Incline Dumbbell Presses.

Day 2* Working Sets
(sets x reps)
Pulldowns or Wide-Grip Pull-Ups 3 x 8-10
Low Cable Rows 3 x 8-10
Dumbbell Rows or Bent-Over Barbell Rows 3 x 8-10
Standing Barbell Curls 3 x 8-10
Alternating Dumbbell Curls** 3 x 8-10

* Since Low Cable Rows, Dubbell Rows and Bent-Over Barbell Rows work a lot of the biceps, you don't need a lot of additional biceps work. In fact, doing too many sets for biceps after a good back workout could case your biceps to become overworked, which will prevent them from growing.

** Dumbbell Curls can be done either standing or seated. Alternate from week to week between the two.
