    Mens physique workout routine


    Hey I am 20 years old 5'8 165 and 9% fat.. Next summer I would like to compete in mens physique. This would be my first competition so any competition advice would be awesome! I have always done standard 4 or 5 day splits but I have noticed that most of the physique competitors use a 6 day split... So my goal is to gain as much weight as possible before my final cut so here's my split rough draft..
    Monday- front of body(chest abs quads biceps)
    Tuesday-back of body(back shoulders triceps hamstrings calves)
    Wed-abs cardio
    Thursday-chest/back
    Friday- legs
    Saturday-arms calves shoulders
    I will be going pretty heavy on the compound exercises and then going for 12 reps on iso movements
    Any suggestions on this split or advice about the competitions and what the judges look for thanks guys!

    kind of a weird split... not that thats a bad thing...

    What do the exercises look like for Monday/tuesday?

    just seems like there would be a lot of overlap

    also, 6 days a week is a lot, i think maybe a little less volume....
