i dont workout the same body part twice a week. so im my book you're overtraining

if i were you i would switch my routines up, for instance, if i did standing military press and dbell press for shoulders on monday, when i did shoulder on thursday i would do 2 different exercises, maybe upright rows and rear delts. Same for all of my body parts. try and do different exercises the 2 different days of the week. Hope this makes sense

I got a better question you tell us whats wrong with your routine by going and looking the mirror and being honest with yourself.

seems a little excessive for twice a week. I do like 7-8 sets for a muscle group once per week.

Well, bonehead you said nothing about nothing so I'm assuming that you already started it. I think your going to be overtraining and need to go back to the drawing board. Then learn a little grammer good luck!:D

hes not bein an as*hole man but if your gonna come on here and ask for advice, then when someone gives you some and you shoot it down the way you did people are gonna become offensive. you gotta be able to take some criticism on this board. but as for your workout i think your overtraining, try hitting each body part once per week:thumbs:

Well the best thing to du is scrap that workout and build a new one. I would recoment one of three types of workouts:

1. Push/off/legs/pull/off/off

2. upper day/ lower day/off/off/ upper day/ lower day/off

3. Full body workout, 2 or 3x a week

Exercises you need to focus on for 95% of your workouts:

Squat
Dead Lift
Bench Press
Military Press
Rows
Pullups
Latt pulls
CGBP
SLDL



Hope this quick answer helps you out

I hate the fact that you are keen on the idea of not working your arms or shoulders. Foreskin is a self proclaimed genius when in reality he's 14 year old trainer that got his personal training cert from the back of a cerial box :thumbs: but I'll bump the fullbody routine, not my fav and you wouldn't see too many top pro's doing anything of this nature or even a trainer for that matter.

I wouldn't listen to foreskin because no one likes him. :laughing: I think you should do your own routine and then go with what works for you. You will learn things along the way like overtraining, foremans an idiot(my gimp, btw get back in your cage), and dieting, too much to list, like know your own body when push yourself and when to reast. Personally I'd go with number 1 with a shoulder/arms or both on different days. Just my 2 cents.

Maybe something like this

Day 1
Arms

Day 2
Shoulders

Day 3
Legs

Day4
Off

Day 5
off or Chest

Day 6
Back

Day 7
off

I paid a trainer who has retired from competing to design me a few programs for bodybuilding on/off season. I would start with maybe 4 exercises and do sets of controlled reps between 8-15 and no less than 3 sets. And remember eating and resting is equally important for recovery and to grow. If you aren't feeding your muscles they will not grow.

[/QUOTE]I never said not to do direct arm work, you need to learn how to read . 2-4 sets of direct bicep and/or triceps work 1-2x a week is a good thing.

By the way the workout you posted is terrible. He might do it far a very short time just for a change of pace but long term it is just an awful way to train.
