    yes, its all wrong i'm afraid. have a look at the routine i poetd up in the thread for "bellyshare" should be the one immediately below this one after i click "submit reply"
    if you are wondering why your routine is awful, it is: i can see by the bodyparts you train that either one of two things is going to happen: either you are useing tons of isolations to target specific parts on different days to avoid hitting the same muscle 4x a week, or you are useing compounds>[great start] but, unfortuneately are goignt o overtrain.

    do a search for one of johnnyfive's posts entitled:

    you cannot train each body part once, or something like that.

    ive looked at that routine u posted rob and read the other post by j5. i can see the point is i cant just work a particular muscle
    without working another. if i show u what i do on each day maybe u cud edit it by taking any of the pointless parts out and/or putting other exercises in. and even swap which days they are done around.

    day1 - triceps & legs

    close grip bench press, skullcrushers, pull downs, dips.
    leg press superset with squats, calf raises.

    day3 - chest & abs

    flat flys superset with flat bench, inclined flys superset with inclined dumbell press.
    crunches

    day5 - back

    lat pull downs behind & infront, t bar rows, deadlifts, bent over barbell rows

    day6 - shoulders & biceps

    dumbell press superset with raises
    shrugs
    preacher curls
    preacher curls overhand grip
    dumbell curls standing cable curls

    any help wud be appreciated!!

    ok, so heres what i'm going to do. i have copied your original routine, and although you get the point about training parts once, i will illustrate that further [see below] then i will edit your routine to a better one. [please be aware, it will look NOTHING like the origianl, it really was that bad].

    day1 - triceps & legs

    close grip bench press[shoulders/triceps/lats/chest],skullcrushers [triceps/shoulders], pull downs [biceps/lats/upper+middle back], dips[chest/shoulders/lats/triceps],
    leg press superset with squats, calf raises. [leg presses are crap compared to squats and supersets are equally pointless, i also find calves don't respond well to raises, farmers walks are much better]

    day3 - chest & abs

    flat flys [shoulders/chest-also note, isolations should be done after compound movements, and supersets are,a s pointed out above, useless] superset with flat bench [shoulders AGAIN/triceps/chest. dips already did the work for this, its one or the other i'm afraid, and dips are better] ,inclined flys superset with inclined dumbell press.[absolutely unnessecary.]crunches

    day5 - back

    lat pull downs behind & infront [biceps/lats/shoulders/middle+upper back. also note pulldowns/presses, or anything behind the neck is nt good for your shoulder complex STOP THIS as it could become dangerous], t bar rows [biceps/traps/teres/rhoms], deadlifts [WHOLE BODY+MASSIVE CENTERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM STRAIN. ALWAYS DO THESE FIRST, AND NEVER REP THEM ABOVE 3REPS], bent over barbell rows [same as t-bar rows, but also hit lower back]

    day6 - shoulders & biceps [shoulders and biceps???? HAVE YOUR SHOULDRS NOT BENN BATTERED ENOUGH??]
    dumbell press superset with raises [shoulders/triceps/traps - forget front rasies, a useless exersize if you have a decent routine, supersets>>>see comments above]shrugs
    preacher curls [absolutely fcuking useless]
    preacher curls overhand grip [absolutely fcuking useless]
    dumbell curls [fine] standing cable curls [absolutely fcuking useless]


    so, hopefully that has re-enfoced the point. you have been seriously overtraining your shoulders and triceps and biceps and back, and paying no real attention to your legs.

    now onto the routine:

    you obviously have plenty of time to go to the gym, well, you now have more free time.

    i am going to give you exactly the same routine as i have outlined in my thread entitled "you CAN'T go wrong", for 1 reason, if you follow it, you will see progress. good luck mate.
