    Thinking of changing my routine


    For about the last year, I have done a 5 day split:
    chest/tri
    back/bi
    legs
    shoulders
    arms
    rest
    rest

    I have been reading lots of people say they grow best hitting a muscle twice a week, what do you think about:
    Chest/tri
    Back(shoulders)/bi
    legs
    rest
    chest/tri
    back(shoulders)/bi
    legs
    rest

    ????

    I'm ready to try something else as well. I usually do
    chest/bi
    legs
    abs
    tri/shoulder
    back
    off
    abs


    Was debating on doing the same thing you have outlined except putting shoulders on leg day and also having a rest day between back and leg day so hitting each muscle group every 5 days.

    I say try and out and see what works. We can all give you tons of advice but sometimes you gotta see if the routine works for you. My routines would not be given a white light by probably anyone on this board.

    Upper-bench
    Lower-squat
    Off
    Upper-oh press
    Lower-deadlift
    Off
    Off
    I also do 5/3/1

    Once I hit some platues ill prob try layne nortons PHAT routine, which is a ME and DE routine
    Upper Power-ME
    Lower Power-ME
    Off
    Back/Delts Hyper-DE
    Lower Hyper-DE
    Chest/Arms Hyper-DE
    Off

    There are endless options
