Whats your routine?

I've been back at the gym for about 3 weeks and have yet to set a routine in place for myself. I'm kicking around a couple of ideas but I'd like to see what some of yall are doing......

This is what the tentative plan is as of right now.....

Monday - Chest & Biceps
Tuesday - Cardio & Abs
Wednesday - Legs
Thursday - Back & Triceps
Friday - Rest
Saturday - Shoulders, Cardio, Abs
Sunday - Rest

Pretty generic but if it works.....

I dont see why ya'll split up areas with days???

Here was my workout when I worked out. I do everything in time intervals to mix lifting with cardio.

bench-15 reps every 30 seconds for 1 1/2 minutes. 45 reps
squat - 50 reps with light weight, no time interval
chest fly - same
squat - 10 reps, heavy weight, no time interval
curl - everything is 15 reps right after one another(no time)
bar-15#'s
35#'s
55#'s
75#'s
55#'s
35#'s
bar
tricep curl-15 reps every 30 seconds for 1 1/2 minutes. 45 reps
row (with resistance)- 15 reps every 30 seconds for 1 1/2 minutes. 45 reps

finish up with these(no time intervals)
30 push ups
50 crunches
30 six inches(lay on back, lift feet 6"-1ft then go back down)
repeat all three excercises

then - 100 reps of those cheap $5 ab wheels at academy.

For a while I would run 1 1/2 miles before doing all of this.

umm because if you want to put on any size.. this work out WONT work for anything more then a beginner.. i know my routine works by the amount of muscle i packed on. there is no way to do a full body work out and efficiently work your entire body.

A 170lbs 17 year old doing benching 255 isn't effective? You must be right. I did that workout not only to build muscle but to burn fat. It was very effective. When I started working out I was only benching maybe 135.

I might have been benching more doing it everyone elses way but I like myself looking lean too.

how long did it take you?
i started lifting at 160lbs.. i could bench 225 once.
in 2 years i was 255.. and i could bench 485.
doing a complete body work out is o.k. if you have dont plan to put on a considerable amount of muscle. you dont have to believe me. you can beleive all the PRO bodybuilders who have tried it. and have agreed that if you want real size/strength.. you HAVE to split it.. its not my opinion dude. its a 100% proven fact.

The most I did squat was 325 with my bird legs. I never wanted to be huge. I liked a lean, toned body. I got to 255 in a little under a year. And that was at 17. I'm sure you were a little older doing 400+lbs.

at 17 i lifted for a little under a year.. i weight 160lbs. could squat 315, bench 225 for reps. and shoulderpress 175 ( after a year of lifting).
then i stop lifting till i was 20.so i was 22 when i pushed up 485. i never maxed out when i was younger.. but i was pusshing 225 foreasy sets of 8-10
first day back i benched 225 ( i was still 165), and was squatting about the same ( i dont remember exact numbers.
well. i lifted for 2.5 years. ( well i took 6 months off for torn rotor and hurt elbow.. so 2 years) and i already posted the weight i was moving after that.. keep in mind.. i was all natural..

If i was only working chest. and all my weight was upper torso. i would have been moving alot more weight then that.. but i like to be balanced.. its already been proven that ignoring legs will inhibit your growth..
keep in mind.. im not stating my opinion.... im stating proven facts.. facts proven by hundreds of pro and amature body builders who are alot bigger then you and i put together.
benching 255 isnt bad.. especialy not at 170ish body weight.. but in the grand scheme of things.. if you are trying to get BIg.. thats not my opinion of big.. im 5'7" 300lbs and i dont consider myself to be " big"


your program might make you happy. and im not saying chanve it.. i am mearly stating that if somone who is reading this wants to really bulk up, its not the way to go.
but all i stated was that
(1) its a fact ignoring your lower body will inhibit growth
(2) its a fact that doing your whole body on one day will NOT support as much muscle development and concentration as a split.

I agree fully. I never intended to bulk up. A lot of people post just how to get toned, and not necessarily get big, thats what I always shot for and I liked it. If you don't mind me asking, how tall are you?

my routine:

day 1- chest, back, lowerback, abs
day 2- shoulders, legs, calves, traps
day 3- cardio (running), biceps, triceps, lowerback, abs
day 4- off
repeat

sometimes abs/lowerback gets mixed around and an extra day of running gets squeezed in but that's the basic routine. 3 exercises of 3-4 sets for major muscle groups, 8-12 reps each set. i'm 5'10" 175.

exactly, i can't even do flat bench with a bar anymore, kills my shoulder. i do dumbell bench and incline. i'm tired of having hurt shoulders, elbows, wrists, etc., from heavy lifting. i'm tryin to be 5'10" 180 with about 8% body fat. right now i'm 5'10" 175 with about 10-11% body fat.

you'd be a mean mofo at 250....not that you aren't mean now.

my eventual goal is lower 200s.. my dream is to be 225-235.. but that would take ALOT of diet and cardio.. and alot of time.. but im willing to put it in.. im just tired of carrying 300lbs around with me.. my DREAM is to be 225-235 with 10-15 lbs more meat on me then i have now.
