I like Dogcrapp type of training and/or POF training, they are both low volume, do a search on these type of training to see what they are all about...i think volume training creates to much stress and is counterproductive...XXLSOURCE CHECKS ONLY FOR USERS WITH OVER 100 POSTS.

I would just suggest if you are starting a 5 day a week training schedule you hit one body part per day. 45 minutes and you are out of the gym.
wed. off/ abs
Fri. off /abs
This happens to be my schedule.
Train in the 8 to 12 rep range. Making 10 reps your standard. Don't waste your time hitting a body part3 days a week. You will never train hard enough to make any gains.
Good luck and welcome back,
