    WOW that's a lot of volume! You'd be better off doing lower volume and just hitting your lifts harder. You can even work the same muscle twice a week this way. For example, I work my chest and shoulders every Monday and Thursday, but I only do about 8 total sets per muscle group (sometimes 10 for chest if you want to count some pullovers). That adds up to about 16-20 total sets for chest and shoulders per week, which is more than I'd want to try in one workout. Doing about 8 total sets for any larger muscle group (I do a little more for back and legs on one of their respective days, like 10-12 sets) in one day is something I'm capable of, and I can recover enough by the next workout that I've been seeing some progress about every week since I've been doing it this way. Here's my split; if you want more specifics or something, just PM me.

    Monday - Chest/Shoulders/Triceps
    Tuesday - Back/Biceps/Legs
    Wednesday - Off
    Thursday - Shoulders/Chest/Triceps
    Friday - Legs/Back/Biceps

    The first muscle groups get hit the hardest. For example, on Mondays I usually hit chest harder than my shoulders, and vise versa on Thursdays. For example, my chest workout on Monday might be bench presses, incline DB presses and finish with some pullovers (so that's two compound lifts and pullovers, which mainly hit my serattus and rib cage, but it stretches the pecs so I like to finish with it). On Thursdays, after shoulders my chest workout may just be some incline DB presses and some incline DB flyes, and I may superset those. On Mondays, I may do a compound shoulder lift, such as upright rows or a press, and an isolation exercise, such as side lateral raises. On Thursdays, I'll do two compound lifts and finish with some side and rear delt isolation work. I follow the same ideas with back and legs. Arm work is saved for after the larger muscle groups and they've been coming along nicely. I'll do maybe 4 sets of arms on their respective days, so at the end of a week I'll have done about 8 sets for biceps and triceps. I do abs about 3-4 times a week on average, but I'll do them whenever I feel like they're fresh and ready to go. I alternate between crunches and reverse crunches for abs, and do vacuums between each set, and occasionally some side bends. Pullovers really help my side detail, especially the serattus. Doing stomach vacuums helps bring out the lines, I think. For reps, I'll do 15-30 reps, depending on the exercise, and I'll do slow, deliberate reps where I hold the contraction for a moment. Not choppy movements.

    It's a good program for building the physique and increasing overall strength. I see subtle changes in my physique on a somewhat regular basis, and I'm getting stronger on my lifts, so I can't complain!

    The trick is finding what works for you. And remember that most of the time, less is more.


    I mainly stick to compound exercises, but I throw in some isolation work too because I think that's very important if you're into physique building

    well, I have to hand it to you, you've got the new award for worst workout routine i've seen. I can only imagine what sort of weight some of those are done with, and how much time each day you are wasting in the gym. I keep trying to count how many sets you are doing, and I mentally wander off after 20 and never get it on any of those body parts. Theres no way you need 20+ sets of an average of 12 reps a set for any body part

    Yeah, what this guy said!!

    You must be doing an aerobic workout. That's the only reason I can see for so much useless movements.

    To OP, are you serious? or just mental? Even the most juiced up retard wouldn't consider that and if by some chance you can make it through one day of that you will be using a weight that is negligible and therefore worthless. You carry on regardless though and buy your latest FLEX on the way home from that workout.

    So to give the "what you should do" part, take any of those bodyparts, and do no more than 3 or 4 of those exercises per workout, with as heavy a weight as you can manage, and do one of the set groups (whatever exercise you do second) as whatever weight you can manage to reach failure at 6-8 reps for all 3 sets. you'll see a lot better results, and be in the gym half the time

    Some of you don't have to dog this guy just because he came up with a crazy routine. Crazy routines are a dime a dozen around these forums. We're here to educate, not rip him a new one. I'm just saying, you can educate without sounding demeaning. We all started somewhere with a certain amount of knowledge. Some of us know this stuff, but most people don't or are still learning. Hell, everyone should always be learning, but some people are obviously at a higher place than others.

    Peace

    I agree fully. I should have withheld my comment. However, it does look just like his previous post: anabolicminds.com/forum/steroids/137333-what-do-you.html#post2163208

    And if you check his history he asks the same questions 5-6 times on multiple threads.

    You want to keep your workouts to around an hour long. No offense that would take me days.

    Like the guys mentioned take around four of your fav's then mix it upo evey couple of weeks. Good luck!

    Alright alright relax people. I was sent the routine by this dude and I did try it for a week and it is extremely pointless to have all that crap in a routine. I don't mind the negative reactions because it was to be expected. So it's all good. I can post my normal routine if anyone has doubts? lol I don't want to be "that guy" if ya know what I mean.
