Heres the new workout im starting
Hey, me and my training buddy are going to be starting a new workout for the remained of the summer and for me, throughout the fall untill track sason starts. Im a sprinter/long jumper and im wondering if this is an alright workout. I usually vary the exercises each week. We are working out M,T,Th,F. We chose to do the workout on the days mentioned so that our legs have the weekends to be sore (my buddy works construction and trying to do shit after a nice kickass leg day would suck)
Im going for a nice workou tto get me strong for the upcoming year and to get me ready to do sprints. I will be doing sprints on a football field occasionally, and we do abs 2 times a week. Any critique will be greatly appreciated. thanks.

I used to train like this but I find it more beneficial to have an arm day. My bis arent tired after back and my tris arent tired after chest

I see two problems.
1. On Back/Bi day, work your back first. If you work your bi's first then they are weakened and you don't have as much strength to work the back.
2. Do the benchpress and dumbbell press b4 cable crossovers.
Two rules I like to follow is larger muscles, then smaller (hence back then bis)and multijoint exercises b4 isolation exercises (hance BP b4 cable crossovers). Of course you can change it up a little here and there but as rule that's what I do.
