    Am I on the right track?


    I decided to get a serious lifting schedule started at the beginning of the summer. Previously I was working out sporadically and seemed to let things fall apart (either because of school or too much partying ). I really wasn't hitting my legs because I was an idiot and had never really done any deadlift work.

    Here is what I've been doing

    1. Chest/Tris
    Incline DB Press
    Flat DB Press
    DB Flys (alternate flat and incline weekly)
    Skullcrushers
    Dips

    2. Back/Bis
    Deadlift
    BB Row
    Lat Pulls
    Seated Row
    Preacher Curls

    Rest/Cardio

    3. Shoulders/Traps
    Overhead DB Press
    Lateral Raises
    Front Raises
    Upright Row
    Shrugs

    4. Legs
    Squat
    Leg Press
    Leg Extension
    Leg Curls
    Calf Raises
    Abs

    So far I've seen some pretty decent gains
    1RM For incline is up to 100s from 80s
    Deadlift is 355 up from 135ish
    Squats are 245 up from 195

    Any critiquing or advice would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    This. That's a pretty basic and centralized split. It all depends on your goals.

    Looks pretty good, i suggest doing all rep ranges too. I literally start around 20 and go as low as 4, PR's every workout doesn't lie
    I hope everybody thinks i'm crazy, because you cannot be a sane person and go through the type of pain i am willing to put myself through to be where i want to be, Once I completely win the war between my mind and body, my reign will begin. ~Me

    This split is almost identical to mine. I've been doing it for about 12 weeks now and might decide to change it up shortly to "keep my muscles guessing". Was wondering what your current goals are and if you are taking any supplements?

    Also, I utilize anything and everything. Rest/Pause, partial reps, holds ANYTHING i can do to make the set that much more intense. Plus it helps make that heavier weight the next workout feel "not as heavy"
