Tues chest and tricep
Wed rest or legs/back

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?

routine is one of the worst ones ive ever seen. you are a typical chest n arms warrior
10-21-2013, 03:15 PM
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

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

I think forums are there to help ppl who share the same interests, not to try to belittle people who are family new to the topic..

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.
Bigger and Better Is all I KNOW!!!

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.

Ok I spoke to a friend of mine who is into weight lifting ... He told me the same thing and that is to change that routine... He told me to do this
Mon..Biceps and triceps
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.

Also I just realized this is a home gym setup youre talking about. What equipment do you have?
10-21-2013, 08:14 PM
I have a total gym .. Free weights..i might have to take a pic in order for you to see...

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?
10-21-2013, 11:08 PM
240 in plates, that's w/o the barbell and up to up 50 in barbell ...
10-21-2013, 11:10 PM
I do I have machine but it's all built in thats I thought it will be easier if I post a pic...
10-21-2013, 11:11 PM
10-21-2013, 11:15 PM
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.

I have the 2nd edition. But any of them will do.
10-22-2013, 04:01 PM
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.
