    I'm curious as to what expertise you have in this field to be giving such adamant advice.

    Jimmbow, you're fine with what you have outlined. Try new things and see how you react. It is individualized, but keep in mind the frequency/intensity/volume balance. If you raise frequency ( like Doggcrap training) then you lower volume and keep intensity high. Much like if you raise volume, you lower intensity or frequency to balance it out. Listen to your body, it will give you signs of overtraining. Might I suggest you pair Biceps with Triceps on their own day. I used to have a standard 5 day split like this, before I got more varied with my workouts.

    Monday=Chest
    Tuesday=Back
    Wednesday=Shoulders/Traps
    Thursday=Legs
    Friday=Biceps/Triceps
    Sat/Sun=Off

    Always try what works for you before listening to someone you don't really know well enough to verify their knowledge. That goes for my advice as well.
    i was just relaying the majority of the advice given to me. this is just my opinion and what has worked for me, so i pass this on, but take it with a grain of salt. also, as i corrected, i thought he was talking about training 7 days/week(everyday) not 5. i wasnt trying to be "so finite", but i saw everyday and assumed he meant 7 days/week before i continued reading. sorry for any bad advice that i gave, i was just trying to be helpful with what information that i no from experience and from asking the same kind of questions myself.

    Have you guys every tried Mentzer's HIT routine? I can't say enough about how effective and efficient it is.

    lazers9, I hear you, no fualt for you trying to be helpful.

    sameer, I am not huge in my mind. But thank you for the compliment.

    Again, different things work for different people. I mean, look at the guys in prison. Ridiculous frequency, and volume, but some are just monsters and diced up. Some people respond to strange stimuli.

    I pull his book out every couple months and read through again,Mentzer was awesome,he reminds me of myself(w/o the porn star mustache,lol!)But seriously,All I can say is Pre-Exhaust,Pre-Exhaust,PRE_EXHAUST!!!!Mentzer was the man back in his day.I believe he was genetically gifted also,but his routine and total outlook on his routines/scientific applied knowledge is as good as it gets,also in one of his books he breaks it down into a hundred something pages,where as Arnolds"Bible" gets you lost in all the bs before you can actually benefit from reading 1000 pages,lol.:bb3:

    Good call Ubi,thats basically what I use as my bread and butter routine.Follow that and you can't go wrong,Notice how Tris/bis are far away from chest day....this is VERY important for proper training of both chest and arms..Also make sure to Pre-EXHAUST!!!
