Need Opinions on this Workout
Chest and Back
Shoulders and Arms
Haven't decided on sets and reps yet, suggestions welcome. What do you guys think?

BTW, If it helps, I'm 24. 5'10, 175lbs. Looking to add a little bulk but main goal is definition. Any input is greatly appreciated.

The leg day is lacking. Personally I wouldn't do shoulders after leg day. Have you ever thought of doing it like this:
day 1 -chest/tri's/abs
day 2- legs-quads/hams/calves
day 3- off
day 4- back/bi's/forearms
day 5- delts/abs

I see that schedule as severe OVER-TRAINING.
No way in blue h*ll I could hit chest on Thurs. after thrashing it on Monday.
I'd still be sore Weds/Thurs. Even if the soreness was gone by that time, which it rarely is, that does NOT assure that recovery is complete.

What kind of sets/reps are you referring to? Lately I've been doing the basic 3 sets of 10 reps,not that workout but I still do chest on Monday and Thursday. I'd put myself in the intermediate range as far as size/experience lifting, I'm no where near your size, probably not even half as big. Any suggestions?
Thanks again for everyone's input, its greatly appreciated.

For those of you that do the "Each body part, once a week" style workout, How many exercises do you do per bodypart? I've tried that type of workout before and it just didn't seem like I was doing enough. Thats why I was looking at the workout I mentioned earlier in this thread. Any ideas?

Looks like a good routine, I'll have to try that next.

Overtraining , wont gain no bulk maybe get smaller.
One body part per day except bis and tris on same day.
6 to 9 sets and 4 to 6 reps 6th being positive failure .
3 DIFFERENT EXERCISES PER BODY PART
