    Need help woth routine


    Aright guys need some help here. Next week I start my new job working for a real estate company from 8-3 everyday then at night i have work at ups from 5-11.

    Heres what i do now...
    Mon-chest/tris/abs
    tues-back/bis
    wed-shoulders/abs
    thurs-legs
    friday-whatever i feel like doing really/varies

    Workouts usually last any where from an hour to hour and a half. I have a full gym at my house with DB's up to 60.

    Any ideas on how I could switch this up? I was thinking a MWF split and then I can do whatever on the weekends cuz I dont work then. My days are gonna be super long so I was gonna work out at night after ups. I'm pretty clueless as to how I can set this up to hit every muscle group on a regular basis.

    Any help is greatly appreciated guys.

    working at UPS can be a w/o in itself. but anyway. my split would be
    monday chest/abs
    tuesday bi's/calves/shoulder
    weds. off
    thursday tris/quads/hams
    friday back/abs/traps
    saturday and sunday maybe cardio unless your planning on doing cardio after your lifts. take notice that there are no two similar body parts being used on the same dayor back to back e.g. bi's and back or tris and chest. the reason for this is, if you do chest then try and do tris, they will already be pre-xhausted when you worked your chest. same thing when you do back then bi's

    I think if I were in your position, I would do two of my workouts on the weekends. It seems like during the week you will be pretty tired, so maybe try to squeeze in 2-3 of your workouts then, maybe something along the lines of keeping your current split but doing something like:

    Sat: Chest/Biceps
    Sun: Legs
    Tues: Shoulders/Triceps
    Thurs: Back

    Then maybe do some cardio or light other work on Wed.

    I agree. I don't think you will be able to do that much during the week. Have you talked to someone at UPS to find out how strenuous the job is? Everyone I know say there is a reason most don't work 8 hrs in the warehouse. Now if you are a supervisor or have a desk job, then that"s a different story.
