Cardio is done every other day as well as an Ab workout. Cardio is done at different time of day than workout. It is not done right after i work out.
I am currently taking Creatine Mono (10g's a day), Jacked - 3 scoops before workout as well as Protein Shakes 3 times a day along w/ fish oil. Diet will get to where it needs to be.
Let me have it boys/gals

Overall not bad other than saying 0 about your diet than "Protein Shakes 3x a day" which is bad. The only thing i'd change beyond that is moving shrugs to be the last shoulder exercise

Sorry about the diet, i thought that i would post that up in the diet section of the forum. Didnt know if this was the right place. Right now, eating 6 meals a day 8/11/1/3/6/9 (3 main meals are 70-80g's of protein. Other 3 snacks are around 20g's) Complex carbs worked into each meal for a total or around 2600-2800 calories, 270-300g of protein, and 260 for carbs.
Interesting you suggest moving shrugs to last. I always thought the heavier push/pull exercises should be done first.
On a side note, I live in Tampa and Tallahassee (long story). Where do you workout in Tampa? I just to go to LA on countyline and BBD

Thats where I work out too, I live across the street in Live Oak Preserve. Well, on compound "main" exercises the heaviest should be done first, but shrugs aren't very compound, they are pretty isolated and are more of a back movement. Military press (or in your case db) would be considered a main and more compound press. Supersetting that with upright rows would work well, I've always liked push + pull supersets.

Have you ever tried switching workout 1 with 2, or workout 3 with 4? I feel like you'd feel better having a 3 days separation between your arms, shoulders, and chest splits, as well as a 3 day separation between your back and legs. It should allow you to bench more (or at the very least bench more comfortably) and squat and deadlift heavier (your upper back is not too worn for the squat, and your hams aren't too fried for the deadlift).
With that said, I'm also an advocate of doing heavier deadlifts vs. deadlifting for reps. But this is just from my experience, as my body adapts well to heavy stress from the deadlift. So you may not experience my results as you don't have my body, my nutrition, etc. But keep in mind my first point if you havent' already tried it.

Toro, you're saying do it in this order...2, 1, 4, 3? It makes sense now that i look at it. I'll try it.
As far as the deads go, i am coming off a bad hip injury so still feeling a little timid on squats, deads, leg press, ect. I do LOVE the idea of going heavy on deads as well as squats but i'll have to work up to it as this nagging hip comes back to life. I feel like i'm acting like an old man but just want to be safe than sorry.
Great tips though!

I actually meant either do 2,1,3,4 or 1,2,4,3.
