    Training Split


    hey I've basically been doing the same workout routine for the past year. Two body parts a day and they are done twice a week. but I only do 4 to 5 exercises per body. Is this enough or should i switch to one body part a day with more exercises? thanks

    monday/ thursday
    chest
    back

    tuesday/ friday
    shoulders
    bis
    tris

    wednesday/ saturday
    legs
    abs

    Way too much training. It is a bad idea to train arms and delts after chest and back and it is even worse t do it twice a week.

    The same thing for a year?

    It may be time to change things up. Have you ever tried full-body workouts? What about upper/lower or push/pull splits?

    I don't think there is anything more fun and exciting (read manly) than a full-body workout.

    squats
    dips
    pullups
    GHRs
    calf-raises
    incline press
    bent row

    OOOOOHHHH! I can feel the manliness already!

    Isn't it bad to train delts before chest though?

    Than your shoulders are sore to push the weight?

    I usually do chest monday, and shoulders friday..thats bad??
