    HELP with workout program please


    In need of some help designing a new program for myself.I workout from home but got enough weight and machines to do most things, however limited with leg exercises.I'm just wondering if it's beter to do a split program working muscles once or twice in one week.i'm currently doing:
    Monday and Thursday:Chest/shoulders/triceps
    Tuesday and Friday:Biceps/forearms/back
    Wednesday:Legs and Cardio
    3 sets of everything.

    program doesn't seem to be working i've tried a few others but none seem to work.Can anyone help.

    Thanks

    I did that same program for awhile and then hit a major plateau. So instead of working chest&tri's and bi's&back on same days, I switched to something like:
    Mon-chest
    Tue-back
    Wed-shoulders&legs
    Thurs-tri's
    Fri-bi's
    Sat-off
    Sun-off
    With this routine when you work bi's or tri's the muscles are not fatigued from back and chest exercises. Anyway that's how I switched things up and it helped me.

    First of all, what are your goals? Cutting? Bulking?

    Here is my current split that I'm diggin'.

    Mon - Chest
    Tues - Back
    Wed - Legs
    Thurs - Shoulders
    Fri - Arms
    Sat - Off (Or cardio if I feel fat)
    Sun - Off

    I also do cardio 2 to 3x a week in the mornings. Currently, I'm cutting.

    I like this split for the simple fact that each day I'm focusing on one muscle group so I can really blast it without worrying about fatiguing other muscles.

    I suggest the HST method if you are finding that splits aren't doing it for you.

    3 full body workouts per weak
    Use compound movements

    Read up on it...back in the day I found splits didn't work for me but have found good results from HST
