am i over training?
Ive just started back to the gym after a long time here is my routine, 4 set of 4-10 reps each, wo on my lunch.
monday/thursday- Chest & front shoulders: Dips, Flys, Decline PU, shoulder press
Tuesday/Friday- Back & Rear shoulders: Chins, inverted rows, Upright rows, shrugs, d bell laterals
wed/sat- Legs- Dead lifts, squats, lunges.
I would like to add tris to the chest day, but in the evening and bi's on back day in the evening. I would appreciate any criticism you may have.

So you hit all of those twice a week already?
If that's the case, forget ADDING in bi's and tri's on some of those days, and totally drop one of the bodyparts in favor of bi's and tri's on a certain day.

on a 2nd look I don't think I would separate rear shoulders and front shoulders on different days either.
And I personally wouldn't do deads and squats on the same day, theres no way you have enough gas in the tank to do both effectively.

the logic behind separating front and rear shoulders is that they get quite a bit of work in the Chest/ back work out. I didnt wnat to give them their own workout on top of that. Maybe I should removethem from the chest and back workouts and do them on my leg day?

military press, upright rows, shrugs, and dumbell laterals. right now im focused on building mass over definition.would you say thats a good choice of exercises for shoulder day?

if you are hitting each body part 2x per week youare probably over training. Cut back to 1x per wek sna d up your training intensity.
