I have a trainer who gives me the routine, we switched up everything here two weeks ago. we are doing drop sets on just about everything.
monday is chest and back day, an idea of what we do is
3 sets of 16 on the back row( kind of like you are rowing a boat) drop set 180-16reps 145(not sure somewhere around there) -16reps, 125 -16 reps all back to back
then depending if a bench press is open we do either bench or a machine type thing that is a bench press but you can lift one side without lifting the other, and it uses the same weights as the bench press. if we do bench then no drop set if we use the machine we drop set both are 3 sets of 12
then we do lat pull down wide grip drop set 185 -14 reps 160-14-reps 120-14reps
then we do a machine type bench press that you push out in front of you when sitting in the upright postion, 3 set of 14 reps drop set, I don't know the wieght, mainly cause I am too tired to look each time.
then we do reverse pull down with the grip close same weight and set as the lat pull down.
then cable cross over 3 set of 16 100lb, 80lb, 40 lbs with the last one being slow both pulling and negative
we are going to bring back dead lifts next week or the week after that and that is always last.
