    How does this look?


    Alrighty so I'm getting back into working out.

    I wake up at 5 am and eat a bowl of cereal then go to work, have lunch at 11 and go back to work at 12. during lunch I have fruit, a sandwich and a protien shake. at 4 I get off of work and head to the gym. eat a sandwich of tuna fish before working out.

    My workout routine is this, all is three sets of ten
    Monday:
    chest/abs

    bench, incline, decline, pec fly, cross cable

    Tuesday:
    Arms/legs

    cable curls and arm extensions, preacher curl, concentraded curl, machine arm extension.

    wensday:
    back/shoulders

    seated row, not sure what else its called, but 3 other workouts, and for shoulders its. shoulder shrugs, shoulder press, delts, back extension.

    Thursday arms again and legs

    Friday chest and abs again.

    Then after workout I have another sandwich of tuna fish and a protien shake, going to start intaking some creatine this week. go home shower by this time its late and I go to sleep at 9, getting 8 hours of sleep.

    Does this all seem pretty sound or no?
    am I doing to much or to little?

    Thanks for taking the time to read.

    i'm not too keen on this. i took some advice from hman, and got my routine to have a split more like:
    M - chest/tri's/front and mid delts
    T - back/biceps/rear delts
    W - legs/abs
    Th - chest/tri's/front and mid delts
    F - back/biceps/rear delts

    the way you're doing it, all your secondary muscles won't get time to recover since you're hitting them two days in a row. on monday and tuesday, your tri's will be used, then tuesday wednesday and thursday your biceps will take a hit. i doubt you'll get a good workout on wednesday or thursday if your biceps are toast. just my 2 cents though.

    for shoulders, i've found that military press and wide grip upright rows are the best for putting size on them. additionally, make sure you're doing deads or some variation once a week.

    ultimately, the choice is yours, and i wish you luck.
