Is This A Good Workout?

To not beat about the bush, no its not.
You dont need to train youre legs 3 times in one week.
Why not try a regular 4-5 day split.
My old split was
mon: back rear delts traps forarms
Tues: chest front/side delts abs
Fri: Arms and calves.
Hope this helps.

its all about how your body responds, AND this is the split mine responds to best:
I do 1 light warm-up set then 3 heavy work sets about 6-8 reps each exercise. Usually 3 exercises/day. I also throw in ABS on tue, thur, and sat.

legs 3 times per week? Unless your on boatloads of gear I dont see how your growing with that little recovery

I personnally separate my workout on 8 days
Day 1: Chest
Day 2: Back
Day 3: Off
Day 4: Legs / Calves
Day 5: Off
Day 6: Shoulders / Traps
Day 7: Biceps / Triceps / Forearms
Day 8: Off
I do abs every other day before going to sleep. I don't bother to do it at the gym, I feel like I'm loosing energy I could use to recover.
I have plenty of time to recover and my lifts are always going up.

im curious as to why you guys work the whole arm on the same day, instead of doing maybe chest/triceps on the same day?

Personnally, I think that doing something like chest/tricep preexhausts my muscle and doesn't give'em the full workout they need. But that's one of my not so based on actual facts belief... so don't follow my advice :P

i've done Legs and various other bodyparts 3 times a week in a cyclic fashion...without hampering recovery...and while being 100% Natural.It depends on the individual..and your goal(s)
