Workout Critique Please
Ok guys, Im sure some of you have read about my 5 month abscence from the gym if you recognise my name. I bin back at it now for a couple of weeks and just wanted you all to see what you thought of my split.
It looks like this :
day 1: chest / shoulders
day 2: rest
day 3: back / triceps
day 4: rest
day 5: biceps / legs
day 6: rest
day 7: rest
the reason im hitting the biceps on the same days as legs is because my arms have always grow much slower than the rest of me so i plan to hit them hard. Im just thinking of testing this split for say a month at first and see what happens after that.
All you guys are welcome to flame away. Thanks in advance.

1. your stats.
2. your goals.
3. if you're on cycle or not
it looks good. I personally find that my muscles grow more when I vary my routine, even minimally, every few weeks. Ie, start with a different exercise than usual, vary the sets/reps. Just MHO.

Thanks S.P.G. There were a few exersizes I left out delibrityly as Iam only just trying to work my way back into a routine slowly and will and things like deadlift and pull ups in 2-3 weeks.
I left out incline bence because I feel that the top part of my chest is also hit with decline shoulder press. Also close grip barbel press is to help develop my iner pecs as they seriously lack shape.

decline shoulder press is actualy with the seat in the position of the incline vench press. Only diference is that you use dumbells. I find it really hits the upper delts hard. Im still sore off 2 days ago

I was also wondering if it wud be a good idea to do cardio on 2 of my off days or do it on workout days. At present I do it on my off days during the week which leaves the weekend free for rest and socialising
