    Personally I don't think small body parts like arms need a full day of their own. Second, I feel you are doing way too much for your back. When I first started lifting I always thought most was better. I wanted to do every lift possible for a given body part. All I achieved was overtraining and stagnation.

    Something like this would be better (I feel) open to interpretation and comments/adjustments:

    Monday: Chest Tris

    Tues: Back Bis

    Wed. Legs/Delts


    Thurs: Arms; either less volume increased poundages, or less weight and higher reps. Just something different from mon and tues' workout.

    Hope that helps!

    Peace, Love and Chicken Grease!

    I like the split you have except that you are doing a bit much for back. I would go down to 2 for width and 2 for thickness and really bump up intensity for those sets. Since you are looking to increase the size of your arms, it is a good idea to give them their own day. And for delts hit lots of dumbell military and an exercise that I have found to stimulate much growth, cable lateral raises. Give everything plenty of rest and work hard and you will grow. Good luck.

    I know the feeling, back day is awesome, but honestly, since I have gone lower volume and higher intensity my back has grown alot. Plus this means you can go even heavier, which I've found always makes stuff more fun!

    No delts on leg day, no ANYTHING on leg day. You've already got the right idea.

    You seem to already know how to prioritize your weak spots, since you've done weak point training before.

    A day for arms by themselves is a good idea. 2-3 exercises for each muscle group. Take notes from Arnold and experiment with force reps, partials, negatives, etc. Maybe for every other arm workout, do them to complete and utter failure.

    For delts, you absolutely have to do lateral raises. LR's will give you boulder shoulders. Do them on shoulder day, and a set here or there during the week as you find the time.

    LR's are lateral raises! Stand up and hold a dumbbell in each hand, then raise your arms up until they are perpendicular to your body. Try to tilt your thumb down slightly so that it looks like you're pouring from a pitcher.

    Like dumbbell vs. cable vs. machine?

    I typically do them with dumbbell, but you can experiment to see what you like. Variety is a good thing.

    It depends; if you’re solely interested in hypotrophy then your workouts have to be designed accordingly.

    To build Muscle:

    Don’t **** around with every lift possible. You will find that is one of the worst ways to start lifting.

    For all lifts, use these training objectives and variables – The variables will change every day.

    Intensity: 80-100%
    Weight: 5RM
    Reps: 1-10
    Sets (volume): 5-15

    Keep your contraction speed slow or moderate; also very isokinetic (smooth). Get a Negative or two in on your LAST set. The Negative will help improve your lift weight slightly.

    As for the lifts, do standard core lifts: All Dumbbells, I don’t advocate bars because they subconsciously favor and build your strong side faster.

    Based on a Five day lifting schedule… Start each workout with 10 minutes on the elliptical, this will sever as a good warm-up. Additionally, before each lift… complete a warm-up lift and stretches pertaining to them as well – Stretching should be dynamic (or Static) and not ballistic, if a partner is present (recommended) then use PNF stretching techniques.

    Day One: Flat Bench, Incline Bench, Tries, Curls, Rows

    Day Two: Squat (With bar), Dead lift (With bar), Calves, lunges, leg press

    Day Three: Decline bench, Lat pull-down, Cords, Rev-curls

    Day Four: Flat Bench, Incline Bench, Tries, Curls, Rows

    Day Five: Squat (With bar), Dead lift (With bar), Calves, lunges, leg press

    Ending with a cool-down set of lifts and another 10 minutes on the elliptical would be best but not always necessary.

    Send me a private message if you want me to elaborate on anything.
