I'm looking for any and all input on my current routine to make it better and more effective! Don't hold back, give it to me straight. I have taken a lot from the arnolds encylopedia for BB such as doing four sets per exercise, 12, 10, 8, and then 6 reps. My goal is to become more defined (which depends largely on diet and cardio, but also somewhat on training technique) and also gaining overall strenght and size. I will surely get some critisism for my lack of lowerbody workouts but my legs grow very easily and I'm not trying to win a national BB competition. Just trying to get the physique I find that looks the best! Here it goes:
Monday: Chest, Triceps and Abs. I focus on flat bench for chest, usually leaving out upper chest exercises.
Tuesday: biceps and back. I try and focus on back density, not width on this day. I've read ronnie coleman and Jay cutler sepperate their back days this way.
Wednesday: Chest, triceps and abs. I focus on my upper chest on this day with some flat bench.
Thursday: Back and shoulders, focusing on width of the back
Friday: Chest and biceps, focusing on inner chest and regular bench. I also do abs. My inner chest really seems to strugle growing, please any ideas/ help!?
Saturday:Leg day, involving both hams, quads and calves. I know, my ratio of upper body to lower body is pretty bad if I was planning on entering a comp. but I'm not. Also Shoulders
Sunday: day off. Sometimes I will take saturday off if I'm feeling just dead in the gym. Its taken awhile for me to learn the subtle signs in the gym that your overtraining and I'm just now figuring out my body.
open to any ideas/adjustments/tips/etc. Thanks in advance for the responses!
