Hiya guys decided now that i want a change of scenery from powerlifting due to injuries etc.
My current stats and training routine is as follows:
age 18
weight 107kg
bodyfat 11%
chest 50"
arms flexed 17.8"
forearm 15.3"
waist 32"
legs 26"

Monday: Chest, triceps, and a set of side shoulders
Tuesday: Back and a set of rear laterals
Wednesday: Legs
Thursday: Shoulders
Friday: Biceps and Triceps
Saturday: 1 set of high rep squats
Sunday: Rest

can anyone see any problems in this routine?

thanks a lot gareth

    I dont think you need to as such follow a completely different routine if you want to focus on bodybuilding, perhaps change the reps up etc. Westside is something that works great for bodybuilding and can be adapted to suit more bodybuilding via different reps etc, or even your current routine. Shame you're deciding to quit powerlifting you were doing great. Perhaps have you thought of adding in lots of prehab work and higher reps and back off weeks to keep you in powerlifting?
