    Check Out my split routine


    Hey guys so I've been sticking to a split routine for a while and was wondering if you think I should change it.
    For example some people tell me that I shouldn't workout chest with tri's on the same day and back and bi's on the same day as well.
    This is what I've been doing so please tell me if I should make any changes and why.
    Appreciate it.
    Monday: Legs & Calves
    Tuesday:Back & Biceps
    Wednesday: Rest (Light Cardio at night)
    Thursday: Chest & Triceps
    Friday: Shoulders & Abs
    Saturday: Cardio
    Sunday: Rest
    Thanks!

    The only thing you should change is the day you're doing your shoulders right after the day you did you're chest.when you're working your chest you're actually putting your shoulders into a lot of work as well so you're basically training your shoulders especially if you include lots of pressing movements.I recommend spacing them at least a day or its better if two days in between.it would be better if you can do this.and it's fine to pair chest and triceps and back and biceps.
    Monday:legs & calves
    Tuesday:chest & triceps
    Wed:light cardio
    Thursday:back and biceps
    Friday:shoulders and abs

    because they say that I'm over training my tri's when I do those two.
    And I'm over trainiing my bi's as well

    doing what your doing is fine except for doing shoulders after chest day

    you should try doing an dedicated arm day for tri and bi on their own and see if you like that better

    Yeah I've been thinking about doing arms (bi's and tri's together )
    Does that mean that I would do back and chest together? Because they are both major muscle groups

    I think your fine with what you were doing as long as you were seeing results. Doing chest and triceps or back and biceps paired up wont result in overtraining.

    Two links on overtraining I shared earlier in a GVT thread. Figured you may find them interesting.

    http://www.biolayne.com/uncategorize...-overtraining/

    Edit: I would also have to agree with the shoulders after chest topic already touched upon.

    The first article sounds really interesting.
    Have you tried it?

    depends. do you need that many sets, load, intensity for those parts? are all those sets progressing you to your goals? are you recovering and becoming better?

    if so, then you are not overtraining, or least the type of overtraining that most people think of. and by that i mean overtraining is not what most people think. it is usually too much work for what they need or underrecovering and nothing anywhere near overtraining.

    I usually do 4 exercises for each body part and aim at 4 sets with 8-12 reps. I usually carry the most that I can. I'm trying to train for size
    But I have seen progress. When Is started I could only bench press 45 dumbbells but now I can do 70 pound dumbbells for at least 10 reps.
    I see that I have gained strength but I wish I gained more size

    Patience and food. Even if you don't gain a single pound on the scale over the next year, the muscle will continue to mature and will have a different look.

    Muscles does not constitute a routine. Reps, sets, volume, cadence, overload, etc. constitutes a routine.
