    Check my split for me?


    Mon - Chest/Tri's
    Tues - Back/Bi
    Wed - Legs
    Thurs - Chest/Tri
    Fri - Back/Bi
    Sat - Legs
    Sun - Rest

    Obligatory facts. I am 170 lbs, 18 and love working out 6 days a week, just not sure if my current one is allowing enough rest.

    75-80% of 1RM @6 to 8 reps for 3 sets. Generally last 50 min to an hour.

    3 sets of how many exercises tho?

    i wouldn't be afraid to venture into the 10-12 rep range some times, and the 15-20 rep range for squats/leg press

    try it for a while, track your lifts. If you see that strength is down on the second time each week then vary up how you do it. you can go with the heavy 6-8 range one workout, and a 12 range the second with lighter weights, and/or make sure you vary what particular exercises you do each time. like if the heavy day for chest you do flat bench, incline bench and decline bench, then on the second day do flys, cable crossovers and something else (can't think of anything offhand)
