    my split


    The mad scientist that is myself made this split. It's a bit unorthodox, but I think it will work pretty good.

    chest/hamstrings
    back/calves
    off
    delts(includes traps)/calves/abs
    quads/forarms
    arms/abs
    off


    All suggestions are appreciated.

    you end up working your tri's not once, not twice, but thrice a week.
    calves before quads? put them together.

    If you are really looking to change around ur workout, you might want to try a push/pull split, I'm using one now and love it.

    well here is basically what I do.
    Sometimes throw in an extra set or 2, sometimes take out some based on pump/energy/ or amount of time I have.

    Strength days are low reps, low volume, heavy weight.
    Hypertrophy days are moderate weight, mod-high reps, high volume.

    I do all 4 of these workouts every 7-8 days based on how i'm feeling also.

    I don't go to failure, so this way I can recover faster. It helps BIG time. If I went to failure I wouldn't be able to do do all 4 workouts every week.

    Thanks, I'll have to give that a try sometime.

    As for a 4 day split, how about this one?...

    monday- chest/bi's
    tuesday- legs/calves
    wednesday- off
    thursday- delts/tri's/abs
    friday- back(w/traps)/calves
    saturday- off
    sunday- off/ light abs work at home

    My only concern with this split is... When should I work the rear delt? Thursday or Friday.

    You are making things more complicated then they need to be IMO. Stick to basics, even arnold recommended that when trying to build mass/strength.
