Help me modify my routine (roulette6)
Okay, the first thing I want to say is that I see many people doing "splits" that work out all body parts only once a week. I know muscles such as delts get worked even when they aren't the target, but that doesn't count.
With that said, I plan on working out 5 or 6 times a week, doing the same routines twice a week. Is this unnecessary? I read that exercising a body part once once a week is for the gifted. Can an educated person say why this is or isn't true?
Anyway, on to my routine... Monday & Thurs (chest and biceps)
incline dumbell or barbell bench press (3 sets of 8)
incline bench press (machine, 2 sets of 8)
pec deck flyes (3x8)
chin ups, 3x6 (will increase reps as I grow stronger)
dumbell curls, 3x8 (standing up or on an incline to avoid cheating) Tues & Fri (back and triceps)
wide-grip pull ups 3x6 (will increase reps as I grow stronger)
bent over row 3x8 (using dumbells and a bench)
lat pull down 3x8
kick backs 3x8
is this enough tricep stimulation or should I add tricep extensions?
I'm clueless about how to properly work out my back. I want to do a good job with it and not neglect important back muscles Sats
leg press 3x15
squats 2x12 (will do more as I become more advanced)
leg extensions 3x12
hip adductor 3x12 (on each machine, opening and closing the legs)
leg curls 3x15
calf-raises 3x15 (weighed)
A few things: I know I make no mention of shoulders. Should I work them out only once a week (Wednesday) b/c they get worked through chest and back exercises?
I usually do military press on back days but they're not really a back exercise.
Feel free to suggest a rearrangement of body parts worked in a given day if it's logical.
I do interval running on a treadmill every time I work out, so I always do cardio. Right now I'm trying to lose weight, so I'm not going super heavy on workouts and definitely not eating enough to bulk up.
