    bro, i wouldn't work chest and back on the same day. You will drain yourself with chest and do back half assed. Maybe try this;

    Monday: Chest, Bis
    Tuesday: Legs
    Wednesday: OFF
    Thursday: Back, Traps
    Fri, Shoulders, Tris

    Do calves and abs every other day. You could mis it up a little bit if you wanted, but i don't recommend the chest and back on same day.

    After doing weighted dips, you do three more tricep exercises. No way. This is what you would do to get definition. Put 150-175 pounds on then making fvcking sure you have a spotter when you are doing skull crushers. If you have weight on the bar, your arms will either be toast or you are taking 5-10 minutes between sets.

    Also, back and chest in one day is not real.

    Chest and triceps... back and biceps. They are natural groups. Shake them up when you are in a rut, but weighted pull ups and then curls is a killer. Or bench and then weighted dips.

    To put on meat, you need three- four heavy basic exercises a day, lost of food, rest and a hour or hour and fifteen (max) work out, four times a day.

    First, I would like to say the obvious- everyone is different. If you do this workout (or any workout for that matter) with enough intensity, you will make gains.

    I personally don't like sets of 5 for bench, weighted dips, etc.. I do 80% of one rep max for 8, 85% for 6, 90% for what I get and 95% for what I get. Two of four sets are to failure. Two of four sets also show when I am growing (can now do five instead of four reps) and let me know when to add weight.

    Squats and deadlifts are a different story. I do sets of ten and never go to failure. With squats I start at 220, then add 10 kilos (22 pounds) every set. I do a total of six sets. I then do hacksquats and leg presses with max loads. In your workout, if you do five, you would have to start with about 300 pounds (or whatever it takes for you to break a sweat) and have 400 on the bar by the last set. The last two reps should be really fvcking hard to do, so there should be a lot of iron (whatever that is for you) on the bar. If you do this, you might want to do lunges on the smith machine so that you can safely work with large weights or you will have to rest and will lose the intensity.

    Last- it seems that you have identified biceps as your weak point, since you work them twice. This is cool, but if they are toast from the last workout, mix something else in or you will be moving backwards before you know it.

    Just my two cents....

    thanks znak! Your suggestions are greatly appreciated bro! My biceps are pretty good (17+ inches pumped) but the program I modeled this from suggested doing biceps twice. Any ideas why? I could easily eliminate them (but I do love the pump I get!!!) Should I keep biceps with legs (on Day 1) or do them with back (on Day 5)? Any suggestions?

    My only suggestion is that this is a fairly typical split and you shouldn't be afraid to try something completely different.

    Hulk- Go ahead with this workout. Make sure that you feel tired when you leave the gym or you need to add weight.

    LIke I said in my first response, any workout will give results if you are working with enough intensity. I change my workout and slip every 4-6 months. This give enough time to get results from the approach being used and is typically the time it takes for my body to figure out how to make things "easy".

    If you wanted to take the emphasis off your biceps that is in this work out, on day five do:

    Deadlift 6x 10 with progressively increasing weight
    Lat pulls- two warm up set of 15-20
    Weighted pull ups 4 x 10 (max)
    lat pulls 2 x 10 (max)
    dumbell rows 6 x 10 (increasing weight)

    Set a couple goals for this workout (i.e.- ten clean pulls up with x pounds).

    You now have classic mass gain work out. Eat well, workout till you puke and in six months you will have put on 20 pounds.

    Now get off the fvcking internet and go to the gym!
