    Will this work?


    Ok, so I have been lifting for about 2 years, and about 4 months hardcore and with a clean diet. I'm seeing good gains.. My question is, I work my chest, shoulders, and back on the same day. It's working good for me, but will I have better results if I split those up? I can only lift on 4 consecutive days, my work out looks like this;

    Monday-Bi's/Tri's/Legs/Abs

    Tuesday-Shoulders/Chest/Back

    Wednesday-Bi's/Tri's/Legs/Abs

    Thursday-Shoulders/Chest/Back

    Friday-Cardio

    Saturday-Off

    Sunday-Cardio

    I work out in the A.M. input would be appricated!

    You will be working your triceps and biceps 4x/wk. Very bad routine.

    Try this:
    Chest/Back
    Legs
    Cardio
    Arms/Delts

    Triceps are involved in chest and shoulders and biceps are involved in back.

    Rodja's routine looks good. Your overworking everything, especially bis and tris. They are secondary movers in in the days you are not working them specifically (i.e. when you perform a bench press you do not only use your pectorals, but your triceps as well). Also it would probably be a good idea to put rest days between your workouts. I would go:

    Mon: Chest/biceps
    Tue: Back
    Wed: Rest
    Thur: Legs
    Fri: Shoulders/tris
    Sat: Cardio
    Sun: Rest

    You could try more of a total body workout 3x a week, and I feel that back and legs only need one day a week.

    Not bad. I like bis and tris on the same day though, arms seem to grow better that way (more PUMP)

    Honestly so do I, but I'm just trying to get this dialed in so I dont have anything set in stone yet.
