man thats way too much stuff
stick to the cores for the 4 main groups
add in maybe 2-3 exersizes on top of it and call it a day
1 HEAVY low rep barbell Bench
2 exersizes of Dumbell press, flies..whatever
1 triceps exersize
1 ex or Tbar, Barbell rows, Weighted chins..HEAVY low reps
2 ex of some other back movement dumbell rows, reg chins..whatever
1 ex biceps
1 ex Powercleans, Barbell presses
2 ex dumbell presses, delt flies
1 ex front lat work
1 ex deadlift, goodmorning, or squat
2 ex zerchers, front squat, stif legg DL, pull throughts, legg press, etc
1 ex calve
Simple and easy. Go heavy though and intense, especially the first exersize. This is essential to growth. Stay away from the Flex and Muscle n Fitness mags

I found my problem I must overtrain then.

No...actually I am working more on PL'ing at the moment (WSBC)
But when in a BB mode so to speak, yes I pretty much do follow it always.
I never do the same exersizes each week, and never the same weights, so its always different. I can even change up the days around, but as far as the split on each day, its always the same as I have found they all just fit together perfectly (for me at least)
I get sick of people (in the gyms I visit) pumping out reps and reps of flys and curls but dont do shit for the cores. Then they dont ever grow and are stuck sub 200lb and cant understand why. CAll me a found believe in them I guess....lol
That..and overtraining...man I bet 1/2 the peeps there are. Another 1/4 are just dumbasses running there mouths..lol.
Go hard and balls to the wall and it will be plenty. I have made my best gains off a "less is better" when it comes to numbers of reps and exersizes.

I agree.. less is better.
Back - deadlifts, bentover rows, weighted chins
Chest - flat bench, incline dumbells, weighted dips
bi's - barbell curls, incline dumbell curls
tris - close grip benches, decline skull crushers
Quads - Squats, leg extensions
Hams - Stiff legged deadlifts
Calves - standing calve raises
Shoulders - Military barbell presses or dumbell presses and lateral raises or wide grip upright rows. Rear delts get hit a ton on back day so theres no need for more work.
Traps - they get hit on back day hard from the other lifts.
I love seeing skinny guys in the gym training for 4 hours on machines and cables and wondering why they won't grow while im in an out within an hour.
