    I think this would be better.

    Pull
    Deadlift
    DB or BB Rows
    Chins
    EZ Curls

    Push
    Flat BB Bench
    Military Press
    Dips or Incline DB Press
    CGBP or Skull Crushers

    Legs
    BB Squat
    Straight Back SLDL
    Lunges or Leg Press
    Calf Raises & something for abs

    Push/Pull/Legs is essentially doing the same sort of movement in one workout, so Biceps after Back etc... Its a simple routine, and can be very effective.

    I second this guys opinion. Pull Push is a solid way of organising bodyparts for your routine. No-nonsense approach to hitting some hard and heavy compunds for good growth.

    is that more like it with maybe some other isolated moves thrown in?

    Sure:

    DB or BB Rows - Dumbell or Barbell Rows for back


    Push
    Flat BB Bench - A flat Barbell bench press -
    Military Press - A standing Barbell Press -
    Dips - Dips for chest between parallel bars are like so -
    Incline DB Press -Incline Dumbell Press for chest -
    CGBP - Close grip Bench Press - Like a standard barbell bench with your hand spaced from 6" to shoulder width apart. Elbows tucked in

    Skull Crushers - Lying tricep extension bu lowering the bar to your head, elbows in and upper arms fixed bending only at the elbows

    Legs
    BB Squat - Back Barbell Squat -
    Straight Back SLDL - Stiff legged deadlifts, hard one to describe, you need to google this 1.

    Hi SavageJ,

    You should not need any other isolations other than those listed. Pull Push legs' beauty is it's simplicity and it's no nonsense approach.

    I can gaurantee you that if you apply yourself to the routine listed, you will leave the gym a broken man

    No problems Mooperman,

    I didnt go into a great deal of detail as i suspected you probably knew most and that it was the abbreviations which caused the problems.

    ~Best of luck

    Those images are pretty good for quick reference in posts.

    so it would look like

    day 1
    Pull
    Deadlift
    DB or BB Rows
    Chins
    EZ Curls

    day 2 OFF

    day 3
    Push
    Flat BB Bench
    Military Press
    Dips or Incline DB Press
    CGBP or Skull Crushers

    Day 4-Off

    Day 5
    Legs
    BB Squat
    Straight Back SLDL
    Lunges or Leg Press
    Calf Raises & something for abs

    day 6 off

    day 7 off


    Yep. Thats how I do mine. That way, your lower back and legs recover from Deadlifts before you do Squats, and vice-versa. Plus, if you do Mon/Wed/Fri, you can have the weekend off to rest.
    No need for any more isolations, that routine pretty much covers everything.

    Glad to help, stick with it.

    Hey Sav,

    You should post the Link to your Journal in your Signature. So people can easily link to it from your posts! 9/10 when i visit a Progress journal it is through those links as its easy to find that way.
