    monday- shoulders/biceps

    tuesday-legs

    wednesday-chest triceps

    thursday-back

    friday- forearms/lats


    if yall guys let me know what ya think, change it or keep it, let me know! and like i said, this is just the base. ive been working out 3 days a week, and and just disgusted. i cant stand not going in less than 5 days anymore!

    What exercises are you doing Thursday and Friday? Most people consider lats to be part of the back.

    It's alright I guess, Depends alot on intensity and reps/set. I have tried many diff routines and this is what works best for ME when I switch to 5 days.

    Mon: Legs, traps
    Tues: Chest, calves
    Wed: Back, abs, forearms.
    Thurs: Shoulders or Legs(every alt. week)
    Fri: Arms, calves.

    Not saying this is the best, but I just makes more sense than your routine and utilizes days/time/recovery better.

    SC's routine is intense. I noticed more help with my conditioning than anything. Good workout.

    the only thing i see is doing shoulders prior to chest. since your shoulders play such a big role in chest work.....your shoulders would still be recovering when you hit chest. i would just switch those two days up.

    [QUOTE=legobricks] the base of my routine is this

    monday- shoulders/biceps
    tuesday-legs
    wednesday-chest triceps
    thursday-back
    friday- forearms/lats

    Here's what I recommend, for now:

    Mon. - Chest, Triceps
    Tu. - Quads, Calves
    Wed. - Back (Upper Back and Lats), Biceps
    Th. - Off
    Fri. - Hams, Lower Back
    Sat. - Shoulders, Forearms
    Sun. - Rest

    Most early strength trainers neglect their hamstrings, that's why I included a separate workout for this muscle group. With you being in the military, they are even more important with all the running you have to do.
    You can condense your workout in the week, if you desire. I was just trying to give your lower back more rest for deadlifts on friday (squats and the like on tuesday).

    It's also going to depend on how much time you want to be in the gym training.

    I would definitely do chest before shoulders. Also, I'd double either biceps and triceps together and get the agonist antagonist working together in the same night. Following the same concept, you could do back/chest in the same night. Or I like doing triceps and shoulders together.

    Here's my personal routine.

    Mon: Chest, ABs
    Tuesday: Back (all of it)
    Wednesday: Quads, Calves, Hams
    Thursday: Biceps, Forearms
    Friday: Shoulders, Triceps

    I will also sometimes do back/biceps in the same workout. You'd also want to do traps on shoulder night, but try your workout and see how you like it, if you don't like it much, you can try a combo of ours or re0create your own
