All body routine 3 days????
I just wanted some opinions on my gym routine. I don't have a 3 day split i just have one all body routine.
EZ Isolated Curls
Tricep Pull Down
*some days throw a few more or subsitute a few exercises
At the moment i'm trying to recomp, hopefully lose some of the fat and get a little bigger and toned. I know everyone uses a split like back/tri chest legs/bi's or something but ive been just doing this mon wed and fri. I love the workout as my whole body feels wrecked after it. I think i am getting good results too. Just wanted to see what you guys thought about a gym routine like this one.

i've done full body, but the way i do it is one compound exercise per body part. adding in flyes and two curls at the expense of deadlifts and squats seems counterproductive.

yeah some days i leave bi's out and do squats and deadlifts

personally, i would do one exercise per body part something like
pick one of each :
legs - squats, hack squats, leg press, front squats
back - deadlifts, sumo deadlifts, suitcase deadlifts (deads with dumbells)
upper back (and biceps) - chins, reverse grip chins, pull ups, wide grip pull ups, bent over rows
chest - bench, incline bench, chest dips (head down, body forward, legs back)
triceps - close grip bench, dips (head up, body straight, legs straight), skullcrushers (while laying on a bench)
delts - military press, upright rows, clean and press, push press
your biceps should get a pretty decent workout from the pullups or chins. though you could add biceps if you really felt the need.

Im doing full body workouts right now, 3 days a week, day 1 and 3 are the same, on day 2 i try to use a different exercise for each muscle group.
I focus on doing alot of compound lifts, and try to choose the exercises that are rumored to build the most mass.

Consider making all the various Olympic lifts your basis and add onto/tailor from there.
