    Workout routine...critiques welcome

    Monday: Chest/tris/shoulders
    Tuesday:Back/bis/abs
    Wednesday:cardio
    Thursday:legs/calves/forearms
    Friday:chest/tris
    Sat:Cardio/abs
    Sundayff

    The reason I am throwing chest and tris in there twice is because I have NEVER been able to build up a big chest. When in heaving training before I was able to bench near 380 but still my chest wasnt defined. So i figure adding it in there 2 days a week might help (maybe im wrong). I dont like to work my shoulders and traps out that much because they get pretty damn big no matter what I do. they stand out most I think...Any advice appreciated

    I personally wouldn't do chest after legs. Maybe take Wednesday and Friday off of weights. When I work legs I find that the next day my lifts, no matter what they are suck.

    Working chest 2 times a week will not improve definition! you should look more to your diet for that, also hitting it twice a week will not help it grow any quicker you just put your self at a higher risk for overtraining witch could be the reason your having the trouble in the first place...I think you need to reevaluate your hole approach....

    what repartitions are you using?

    what exercises are you using?

    How many sets per ex,?

    Are you progressing productively?

    are you natural?

    are just some of the questions we need to no to help reevaluate for you..

    I workout 4 days on, one day off. chest,traps and bi's....legs....shoulders, calves and tri's....back and lats. to get more definition in your chest , change up excersises between the 2 days a week and work on your diet. do your upper body one day then legs the next day so you can let your upper body rest an extra day after a big body part workout. You need more cardio in there too, 3 days a week for half hour minimum. Cut back on how many body parts you work as well !! chest and shoulders in one day is too much, you can never have enough strength to lift at 100% doing two major body parts and then throwing in a minor body part to boot is just too too much for optimal gains and growth. Hope that helps you out a bit?? Good luck.....

    If you are natural, try looking up some HIT workouts. You'd only have to work out 2 or three tims a week. Helped me gain 12 lbs over the lat 6 months natuarally while workout out less than half as much.
