I started with a day dedicated to each muscle group (back day, leg day, etc) but didn't really feel like i was getting stronger. Now i am doing a full body routine focusing on compound movements such as squats, deadlifts and pull ups. Down to about 180 and definitely added some muscle, but have plateaued out. What other conpound exercises should i be focusing on now to bust through the plateau? Also, i hate the intervals, but figured it would help get the fat off, is it reslly needed?
Are you doing squats, deadlifts, pulldowns, etc. three days a week ? What does your routine look like ?
