    Leg Curls - 5 Sets / 5 Reps

    Bis/Tris (Tuesday)
    E-Z Bar Curls - 5 Sets / 5 Reps (1 Warm up of 15)
    DB Curls - 5 Sets / 5 Reps
    Close Grip Bench - 5 Sets / 5 Reps
    Seated Dips - 5 Sets / 5 Reps

    Shoulders (Wednesday)

    Front Lats - 5 Sets / 5 Reps
    BB Shrugs - 5 Sets / 5 Reps
    Rear Delt Flys - 5 Sets / 5 Reps

    Abs/Off (Thursday)

    Back/Bis (Friday)
    DB Rows - 5 Sets / 5 Reps (1 Warm up of 15)
    Cable Rows - 5 Sets / 5 Reps
    Narrow Grip Pulldowns - 5 Sets / 5 Reps
    Wide Grip Pulldowns - 5 Sets / 5 Reps
    BB Curls - 5 Sets / 5 Reps (1 Warm up of 15)
    DB Curls - 5 Sets / 5 Reps
    Preacher Curls 5 Sets / 12-15 Reps

    Chest/Tris (Saturday)
    Incline DB Bench - 5 Sets / 5 Reps (1 Warm up of 15)
    Flat BB Bench - 5 Sets / 5 Reps
    Incline DB Flys - 5 Sets / 5 Reps
    Pec Deck - 5 Sets / 5 Reps
    Close Grip Bench - 5 Sets / 5 Reps
    Seated Dips - 5 Sets / 5 Reps
    Pushdowns - 5 Sets / 5 Reps

    Abs/Off (Sunday)


    *I like to hit arms twice a week, that is why Tuesday is just a small arm workout with abs.

    If you have any suggestions, let me know.

    Probably too much, I did 5x5(max out on the 5th) for a few months and could only do a few different exercise's. Probably need another day off as well

    If you can do all that for more than 2 weeks you really need to up the weights for bench and squats. And you really need to add in deadlifts.

    I give a f**K!!
