    So you only sometimes hit legs and back?


    It's not a good routine.
    What are your stats? Weight, age, major lifts, height?

    How much volume are you hitting with these?

    For Chest I do bench press and flies incline and flat.... Three or more sets with 10 reps .. Last set I usually do 5-10 reps

    Flies is threes sets with ten reps with 40 lbs .. Just purchased 45 and 50 so I'll be going up

    Biceps I do, stand ups curls dumbbell. Preacher curls. And standup barbell curls
    3 sets each with 10 reps... On the preacher I do about 3-5 sets.... And I keep adding on weight

    Triceps I do bust heads 3sets with 10 reps...
    Kickbacks 3sets and 10 reps
    And pull downs with three sets and ten reps..

    These are the muscles group that I am focusing on now

    well you were told your routine sucks. then you decided to defend it by saying "its what youre focusing on right now."

    no back. no shoulders. no legs. you dont train anything but arms and chest. i dont care what excuse you make next, it sucks. go read a book or read through the training forum to get a general concept of what doesnt suck. no one is gonna take the time to spoon feed you a lesson that will take hours to explain

    and join a gym. you seem ill-equipped to train correctly. unless you have a badass power rack you forgot to mention

    You need to do more legs and lift some really heavy weight, also eat a lot... Do that for a month or 2 and you'll bulk up in no time. Here is a routine I'm doing at the moment but I haven't been able to stick with the 6 day split so I have "make up days" to try and catch up with the routine.

    Routine #1 – Size Weeks 1-4

    Monday: Back Squat
    Tuesday: Chin-Up
    Wednesday: Incline Barbell Press
    Thursday: Trap-Bar Deadlift
    Friday: Seated Cable Row or Bent-Over Barbell Row
    Saturday: Parallel-Bar Dip
    Sunday: Off

    Sets: 8-10
    Reps: 8-10
    Tempo: 3-0-1-0
    Rest Interval: 3 minutes

    Routine #2 – Strength weeks 5-8

    Monday: Front Squat
    Tuesday: Pull-Up
    Wednesday: Standing Military Press
    Thursday: Snatch Podium Deadlift
    Friday: One-Arm Dumbbell/Cable Row
    Saturday: Close-Grip Bench Press
    Sunday: Off

    Sets: 10-12

    More legs. A strong foundation holds up a strong house. Get your legs to respectable size and strength first, then work on your upper body. Nothing makes me laugh harder then seeing a guy with big arms and chest on the beach and then tiny little chicken legs.

    W/o training legs your true goals wont be achievable in an appropriate time frame. Training the lower body boosts EVERYTHING! There are studies and plenty of guys who have personal experience myself included after several knee surgeries to back it up. You train legs to see gains overall. I make it a staple to never and I mean never miss a leg day. Just read up whenever you get the time.

    Takes a little bit of research though before posting to not get the guys riled up lol. Try out different things and see what works best it doesn't take a year just a little consistency.

    Onionknight is not wrong those links are good.
    OP that routine is crap, let give you a pointer any routine that says back and legs on the same day or has the words "or rest" after either back or legs is not worth the time to read let alone try.

    Mon..Biceps and triceps
    Tues... Legs
    Weds...chest
    Thurs...Back
    Friday....Shoulders or legs
    Sat and Sunday rest......

    I've just need so so used to doing the same body part twice a week...as you guys can see this schedule does one muscle per week... Is that ok?

    No. Don't write your own program. Don't let your buddy write your program.

    Get on a proven program written by someone who has accomplished something. Do not try and change the program.

    Starting Strength by Mark Rippetoe is a simple and brutally effective program for beginners. But that's just one of A LOT of great programs out there. Research and pick one.

    I don't need a picture. You have dumbbells but only up to 40 lbs. do you have a barbell? How much weight? Any machines? A squat rack?

    That should be plenty of equipment to get you started on starting strength. Look up a template. Buy the book if you can, 7$ on amazon. It's a simple program all it really requires is a barbell. After a month or two youll probably need more weight though.

    To me, the muscle pairings you're doing are a bit off. Heres what I do....On Monday, Wednesdays and fridays I do arms, legs and shoulders. On Tuesdays and thursdays I do chest, back, and neck. I do abdominal exercises every day, monday through friday.

    So you basically do bicep and tricep work 5 days in a row, every week.

    First of all, forgive me if I call an exercise something different than its called today. Although I'm new here, I have been in the iron game for over 25 years and some of my terms might be kinda old....But anyway, for neck work I primarily do neck flexions and lateral flexions. Sometimes I use self resistance, sometimes I'll hold a plate in my hand, but primarily I use the head harness with plates on the bottom.
