Looking for a routine

  1. Looking for a routine


    I cant seem to find or construct a workout routine that meets with my goals and schedule. So, Ill my post my goals etc on here and hopefully someone here can help me out.

    5'6
    158
    ~14% bf
    3+ years lifting

    Goals - Looking to gain some lbm and eventually cut to make it visible. I hate to be "that guy", but think Brad Pitt in Troy...thats my ideal physique.

    Im looking for a split bodypart routine, not full body or upper/lower. The only way my arms grow is if theyre worked 2 times per week...my other body parts do not need to be worked twice a week, but can be if necessary.

    Ok if thats not enough info just let me know. I appreciate any help and thanks in advance.

    Follow this and your arms will be hit twice, once directly and once indirectly. If you arent on cycle that is pleanty IMHO.

    Chest/abs
    Back/calves
    off
    off
    Delts/bi's/tri's
    Legs
    off

    1)Chest-
    Flat bench 3 sets
    Incline DB 2
    Iso-movement 2
    Abs
    Whatever works for you, personally I dont keep a record of ab work

    2)Back-
    Deads 3
    Pull ups or pull downs 3
    DB rows 2
    Calves-
    Seated Calf raise 3

    5)Delts-
    Military press DB 3
    Glass laterals 2
    Rear delt laterals
    Bi's-
    Straight bar curl
    Alt dumbell incline bench curl OR CG EZ bar curl
    Tri's-
    CG bench (I prefer decline)
    Overhead DB extensions

    6)Legs-
    Squats 3
    Leg press 3
    SLDL OR Hamstring curls 4
    Standing calf raises


    Again, if you are natural that is enough volume. Up the food intake, not volume of sets IMO.

  3. I do something like this:

    Day 1: Chest
    Incline x3
    Decline x3
    Flat x2
    Flys x2

    Day 2: Back
    Pull-Ups or Pull-Downs x3
    Rows x3 (seated cable, standing BB, whatever)
    Deadlifts x3 (straight legged)

    Day 3: Shoulders
    Shoulder Press x3
    Upright Rows x3
    Lateral Raises x3
    Rear Delt Raises x3

    Day 4: Legs & Abs
    Squats x3
    Abs x3
    Calf Raises x3

    Day 5: Arm Isolation
    Preacher BB Curls x3
    DB Curls x3
    Skull Crushers x3
    Tricep Ext x3
    Wrist Curls x3
    Reverse Curls x3

    Your triceps are getting worked hard on Days 1 & 5, biceps and forearms on Days 2 & 5.

    Many of the lifts can be done with either BB or DB... IMO it doesn't really matter and it's best to mix it up.
