    Advice.

    I have been trying to bulk and wanted to know if this is too much for a week, and if im not giving my body enough time to rest/develop.

    Monday- Chest/Triceps/Forearms
    Tuesday- Back/Shoulders/Traps/Biceps
    Wednesday- Legs/Little Cardio
    Thursday- Chest/Triceps/Forearms
    Friday- Off
    Saturday- Back/Shoulders/Traps/Biceps
    Sunday- Legs/Little Cardio

    Should I change things up, and give myself 3 rest days and separate different muscles for a different day? or would this not be enough?

    Also... is it healthy to do Abs every other day?
    and is it good for my muscles if i nap an hour or two after working out

    I would break it up. It all depends on how much you are training each body part on those days. If you can fully recover in 2 days from training your chest and tris then go for it. I have found that more is alwasy not the answer, but eating better, training smarter, and getting rest will help you grow. I dont do legd and cardio in the same day. Imigh walk the tred for 5 mins to get lactic acid out of them but most of the time I can barley walk straight let alone do cardio on that day. Training your bi's and tri's twice a week might be an over kill in my opinion. You will be recruiting them during back, shoulders and chest days, so to train them exclusively 2 times per week might just hinder your gains.

    My best advice is find out what works for you! everybody is different and everybody responds different. I am sure there is some common ground amoungst us all but there are those who are special.

    i would say its to much imo..i would split it up so ur not trainin as many muscle and also u can focus on those muscle more. i do
    mon. chest/tri
    tues. off
    wed. legs
    thurs. shoulders/traps
    fri. off
    sat.back/ bi's forearms
    u can do abs eod thats fine. but i think doin major muscles 2 times a week is to much.

    Might be to much? Its hard to tell without knowing the volume (# of sets,reps) you are doing.
