    Is this a good workout for me?


    The new workout i am trieing out was givin to me by my dad.

    Day1: Chest/Shoulders/Triceps
    Day2: Legs/Back/Biceps
    Day3: Rest day with small workout including abs and forearms and cardio
    Day4: Rest day with some cardio
    Repeat cycle

    So i am working out each muscle twice a week and i know some people like working out each muscle once a week but i feel the need to work them out more. I work each muscle group about 30 minutes to the point of really wearing them down which totals the workout to be about one hour and thirty minutes long. I like working out Chest shoulders and triceps in the same day because they are all being worked together in one day and not indirectly on another day to ensure they get enough rest. I have been lifting since i was like 8 and i think this might be a great workout for me and was wondering if you guys would recommened something else or tweak it a little bit.

    Thumbs up OK


    That looks pretty good, but what I have found works well is:

    1: Chest,Shoulder,tri (compound movements like bench, OH Press...)
    2: Back,Bi,Forearm (Compound)
    3: Legs (Compound)
    4: Chest,Shoulder,Tri (Isolation movements like skullcrushers, Flies)
    5: Back,Bi,Forearm (Isolation)
    6: Legs (Isolation)
    7: REST

    You can throw cardio in wherever, but you probably wont want to do it on leg days. So I usually do Abs on leg days.

    And you gotta mix it up, do different exercises each week, switch between compound and isolation, do some powerlifting like 5x5, this will help prevent plateaus and keep your muscles growing.
