    Help With Routine Order


    I've been out of the gym for a while, I'm looking to start again.

    I can't remember which body parts to work in /on which order/day.

    I would like 5-6 day/week routine.


    If someone could tell a good order Mon-Fri or Mon-Sat laying what body parts should go on what day, that would be great. I can also make the gym on Sunday if it makes for a better routine.

    Thanks.

    I think suncloud, Omen, Thomas n some of the others have posted a lot on this ones.

    but it depends on your outcome really,
    - fat loss?
    - muscle gain?
    - strength and power gain?
    - foundation?
    - endurance and fitness?
    etc.etc.

    it depends on what your most "lagging" body part is. if you want to bring up a certain body part, train it at the beginning of the week. the most common split looks something like :

    M - chest/tri's
    T - back/bi's
    W - abs/cardio
    Th - legs
    F - shoulders

    personally, its not quite enough volume for me, but whatever works

    BoyfromAus brings up a good point though. you might want to do heavy foundation work (deadlifts, clean and press, bench, squats) to develop a platform you can put more muscle on, before you move on to a traditional split.

    I also need help, i've been searching through this forum but its hard when you're completely clueless like me >.<. I'm 6ft 271lbs, and I'm trying to really cut down. Gained all this weight after tearing my meniscus in the military. I heard that its easier to build muscle if youre fat rather than skinny? So far I have the cardio down, mon-saturday 1hour of elliptical and 30 mins of swimming ( morning cardio ) but somehow I want to incorporate weight training into it. I'm not looking to be big but to have strength/cut. Any input would be greatly appreciate. Thanks in advance.
