Thread: Split help
01-26-2006, 03:49 PM #1
Sup bros. Let me start out by saying that I am cutting, and very perinoid about over training (as my calorie intake is around 2100). Here's what my current split looks like. I do 4 sets of 8 on everything, except abs.
Monday- Chest & Tris
Flys (probably going to go to incline flys next week)
Overhead tricep extensions
Tricep press downs
Wednesday-Back & Bis
Pull-ups or Lat Pulls (aka lawnmower pulls)
Straight bar curls
Friday-Legs & Shoulders (probably a bad combination)
Saturday and Sunday rest.
Also, just curious if anyone thinks I could stimulate more tricep growth if I moved legs or shoulders to Thursday w/ abs, and did triceps again on Friday. That would give me 48-72 hrs. between tricep workouts.

i heard its not good for you to do two muscle groups that work together in one day...what i mean is back and biceps in the same day and chest and tris in the same day if i were you i would do chest and bis and back and bi's just my opinion because you cant really get a good work out for whatever body part you do last ex. if you do back first and kill yourself doing it you cant get a good bicep workout in..just my opinion tho GL later bro

I cannot believe that you are doing legs and shoulders on the same day...WHY????
Why are you doing a 3 day split? I always thought that if you were cutting you should do frequent workouts, with lower intensity. Like, 5 workouts per week with less intensity....burn more calories!!!
Bottom line, you should be working out more than 3 x per week if you can. If you cannot, I would follow this split:
Day 1: Chest, Shoulder, Tricep
Day 2: Back, Trap, Bicep
Day 3: Legs

I like to work chest like this:
2 heavy compound exercises for chest.
1 heavy "transition" exercise (dips, c g bench).
1 direst tricep movement.
When doing chest and triceps, I would call dips or cg bench transition exercises becasue they finish off the chest and start up the tricep work.

Yeah, I understand that a lot of people can only make it to the gym 3 x per week. There is nothing wrong with it, just do not do legs with shoulders would be my advice...try the push/pull routine I suggested.
