Weekly upperbody only routine

I need a good weekly upperbody routine I could do for a few weeks then change to another. The only problem is I dont do deadlifts so please dont mention it in the routine. I'm also looking for mass here plus I'm also on a "cutting" phase atm to lose some little extra weight.

My legs are already pretty hefty so I dont need to do them anymore because I think they are too big already.

    Keep training legs (if only just squatting and calf raising). Training legs is a highly anabolic process and contributes significantly to promoting overall growth as well as keeping them strong.

    There's no such thing as gaining mass while cutting, LOL. I think you'll find the answer to your questions here:

    Ketogenic bulking does not work. It doesn't give your body enough carbs for energy or muscle growth. Yes, you do need carbs for muscle growth and recovery, not just protein.

    I just said I wouldn't do deadlifts, and I intend to keep it that way. You dont have to reply to this thread if you are too upset about MY routines and what I dont like doing.

    Anyway I have no problem with dips, and maybe your right about the bulking while cutting. I can just stick with cardo for the next few weeks to shed off the extra weight then go into a bulking. I also might stick to just squats for legs...

    But nobody can provide a good weekly routine that hits chest, traps, delts, biceps, triceps, back in a week? Whenever I try making one I always somehow hit the muscle I worked the day before.

    What does pretty hefty mean? How big are they? How much do you weigh?

    I'm assuming by weekly you mean once a week. That's really hard. There's no way you can effectively work your body once a week without cpmpletely killing yourself. Is 2 days a week ok?

    Day 1
    Flat bench
    Dips
    Military press
    Shrugs

    Day 2
    Squats
    Good mornings
    Wide grip chins
    Bent over rows

    Do em all 3x8... Out of curiosity, why won't you deadlift? Anyone who is serious about getting big should be doin em, they are great. If you really really wanna do that 1 day routine... I'll try and do one here:

    Squats
    Bench press
    Dips
    Military press
    Wide grip chins
    Bent over rows

    That will be a hard routine... If you do em all 3x8 I guess it's possible though. I would really recommend a 3 day split... But here is a less effective alternative I suppose =]

    Oops I meant where I can work everything over a week period, not once a week. So 2-3 days is fine...

    I always try to rest 5-7 days for my muscles to heal up. I just wanted to split up my upperbody throughout the week.

    I just realized deadlifts aren't what I thought they were, and I'm willing to do them. It's power cleans and clean and presses I'm not willing to do anymore.

    Thanks for the routines, I'll see which ones work for me.

    Good enough. Go check out frankies routine... That's a good one for anyone! If you are a major begginer and your forms not good yet, go use cashmans routine in the begginers section. Or else just use frankies routine on a 3x8 scheme and add in skull crushers on push day and curls on pull day, and maybe leg curls of leg day, as well as some extra ab work.

    Come on man, if you want to get big, yes your going to have to train legs if you want to get anywhere and i doubt that your legs are too big.

    Whats with the shunning of the deadlifts? upset? yeah right, the only one who should be upset is you, for being so moronic pick yourself off the floor and do deadlifts.

    I'm 5'11 190lbs and I just measured my calves at 17 inches(with very little BF around that area too)...and I NEVER work them at all. So no thank you, I dont need to do ****ty deadlifts or squats to grow at all.

    Look down my family tree and you'll notice a long line of people who grew muscle fast. My father for example only goes to the gym once a week, or every other week and is almost consistently the biggest guy in the gym while claiming to be a lot smaller than he used to be.

    I only posted to help myself from overtraining and get a good workout without comming up with one myself. I started lifting two months ago, my last time being in high school, while on a low carb diet(which you people say is impossible to grow up) and noticed my triceps grow a LOT, with my shoulders, biceps, and traps comming in close second. Now if only I could find a good exercise to hit my lower pecs just right.

    This kind of language is not allowed on MT. Please refrain from using in the future.

    So, you have 17 in. calves. That's great. So, why are you not deadlifting? How big are your quads/hams? Unless they are 30 plus inches, they are not "too big".

    language? the guy got potty mouthed over someone suggesting he did deads/squats, so i just told him like it is.

    ****ty deadlifts now that is pure genius, who would of thought that a movement thought of the king of exercises would be refered to as this. You better go and tell Ronnie Coleman that he should stop doing them and he may actually get some decent mass.

    I agree with you regarding deads. However, it is the way in which you handled the situation. Tell him "like it is" in a better manner, please. MT has a no flaming policy. Thanks.

    Sorry, i apologise, I take back the previous statement. The main issue that got me aggrevated was how others views were shunned.

    I dont see what the problem is? You sound to me as though you have a good physique, balanced and starting to develop, why isolate the upper body only? you will only regret it in the future. btw if your 190 at your height then your legs cant be that big if you have decent back, shoulders, arms genetics.

    If you want a good chest do paralell bar dips, with or without bench press and you will be sweet.
