Legs and back on the same day? You're probably neglecting one of them. Biceps don't deserve their own day - make that either leg or back day.

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

i agree.. chest and shoulders are big muscle groups. why would you want to do them the same day?

just do chest and bi's on your 1st day! chest and tri's isnt a workout since doing chest your already working your tri's already , they'd be too tired!

i generally follow this mentality as well... depends.

right now i'm on a strength building cycle and it goes as follows

day1: chest, abs, cardio
day2: legs, core strength (mostly just lower back and oblique exercises)
day3: shoulders, bis, cardio
day4: rest (this day is only here because i have meetings all day on thursdays)
day5: back, tris, abs
day6: long cardio session
day7: rest

if i'm cutting, i tend to do like groups together like short sets of chest,shoulders, tris in the same day and toss in more cardio

bulking i tend to do 1 muscle group a day with not as much cardio... so for me, it really depends on what i'm trying to accomlish and/or what cycle i'm in

yeah, once you get into a routine, it's hard to stop. i've still got a LONG way to go before i'm back into good shape... i miss college, i used to lift twice a day and run... now i'm lucky if i see 7 hours in the gym a week

thx for the advice - im trying to get way more cut. been very conscious of my diet and cardio - but want to get the most out of my workout routine..

ps - i've heard abs more than twice a week is not a good idea since the abdominals are a very small muscle group...?

when cutting i group muscle groups, do lots of reps, fewer sets, fewer exercises per muscle group... so it'd go something like this...

each muscle group would get 2 exercises, 10-14 reps, and 2 sets with minimal resting time

day 1: chest, shoulders, tris
day 2: legs, abs, core, run
day 3: back, bis, forearms (i do forearms in cut cycle because when i'm doing alot of reps, my forearms tend to be the sticking point in my lifts - plus a vain popping out of your forearms can really give you that cut look )
day 4: run
day 6: run
day 7: day 1 etc



as for abs more than twice a week, i've heard various things, just do what works for you (i'll never be the guy giving out ab advice )

good luck

Twice a day? Crazy! I used to be on football team in university for few years and my workouts were pretty intense, but i've always been working out and if i slack it'd be 2 weeks max before i start feeling guilty and feel weak again , that case i just go back! :p
