My weekly routine..need to see if its in check
Well i decided to post this first to make sure its in check before i post my entire workout for arms, legs, ect...
All advice is welcomed, i train calves by themselves to make sure i dont slack off, i know i should probably be doing these twice a week (lol if you have seen my calves in the picture forum, you would know what im talking about)

IMO... I would shift your back workout from thursday to tuesday...
Most back exercises (pulldowns and rows) uses the biceps to some degree... separating your back workout and your arm workout by just a day may overtrain your biceps (depending on how intense you work your biceps)

Personally I don't like it. Not to say it's not good. I would prefer to work out less days. This is my routine:
Not saying this is the best, but it works for me, and I have the weekends off.

back/bis/rear delts/trap(forearms get worked here from deads and rows)
(you don't have to do abs all 3 days just a filler thats all
this is a standard approach hitting all muscles with pleanty of time to recover and no overlapping you can tweak the routine once you have a feeling of how your body responds
I like to do legs first, it requires the most out of you so I hit em when I'm full strength. On chest days your tris already get hit with presses so it would be wise to do triceps here as well as the anterior delts. With the presses you get chest, tris and front delts so after your cherst exercises hit up some triceps then some good old military presses to finish off the delts. After that hit up some side raises and youll have 4 for 1 on one day. The same thing goes with back your bis and rear delts get hit from rowing/pulling movements so blast the back, do some biceps and some bent over rows and your good. Finish off with some shrugs and you have another 4 for day. Like I said basic but effective until you know what your body responds to and what you fell works best for you. Also I would keep cardio to one day as well
