    No,, I.m.o I donít think that you will loose to much size if you only train two times a week, this is still adequate time to train, you could do a split like this.

    1Chest shoulder triceps
    2 off
    3off
    4off
    5 back legs bicep

    Or you could try some thing more abbreviated..

    Monday/Friday

    Mon,
    Squat
    Stiff leg dead or covenantal deads
    Pullup or prone row.


    Friday
    Bench / incline
    Shoulder press

    donít be put of by the abbreviated split, it looks like its lacking in bicep and triceps work, but they will get good of stimulation during the workouts.

    Agreed.. thatís my point exactly With the abbreviated routine, the problem is that ppl think if the donít do all the accessory movements there not working outÖ

    When I played football, hittin' the gym was part of our practice at least 3 times per week.

    I guess times have changed?
