this is absolutley, THE routine. (for me)

i am so fcuking sick of devising a routine, posting it up for critique, ammending it using the opinions of others to better it, doing it for three to 4 weeks then thinking to myself. "hang on, if i just do that or this then it will be totally perfect." absolutely. then it changes again, and agian, and again. until eventually it looks buggger all like original. [:(!][:(!][:(!][:(!][:(!][:(!][:(!]

well here is what i propose to do about it:
i am going to do this, and only this, for the rest of my life.

you are welcome to post your comments but unless there is something fundemenatlly wrong i ain't gonna change it.

note cv is done for 40mins 4 times a week at random times and on random days. kung fu, jiu jitsu and tai chi are also practised for at least one hour of every day. ABS ARE ALSO DONE 2 TIMES A WEEK AT RANDOM TIMES, 3-5 SETS OF 100 SITUPS. warmup is always 8mins rowing/boxing.

MONDAY: DEADLIFT ~ 7x2-3
TUESADY: DIPS AND WEIGHTED PRESSUPS SUPERSETS ~ 3x5 of each superset
WEDNESDAY: FARMERS WALK ~ using 70% of deadlift 1RM for 3x30seconds
THURSDAY: CHINS AND PULLUPS SUPERSETS ~ 3x5 of each superset
FRIDAY: SQUAT/CLEAN AND PRESS [alternate every other week] ~ 3x8/10x1
SATURDAY: REST
SUNDAY: REST

some of these workouts may only take 15-20minutes, but i don't think thats a bad thing to be honest.

    If thats what you like then go for it. One thing I don't like about it is not structured correctly. Back exercises scattered on different days, too much cardio, martial arts..your going to be one tired puppy. If you trying to add some mass you need to back off some IMO. You have most of the essentials....except bench...I guess dips could work alone however. If it was me I would compact weights to 3 training days...allowing 2 other days for martial arts and cardio. You could do more cardio if necessary after weights. Thats my .02c cheers

    You already said that you keep changing things. This new workout might be great for a while but then I bet you'll change it again :-)
    My advice would be to chill out. Routines aren't supposed to be the same for ever. Let it evolve over time as your body changes and your strengths and weaknesses change.

    well thanks for the replies,

    just to elaborate on my first post:

    mass is not important to me, martial arts, fitness and health and finally strength are all that i train for. in that order.

    personally i thought the structure was ok, back is worked hard on the deads, and moderately on thursday with chins. i was going to put benching in there for a while, maybe i'll do that every other week instead of dips.

    to me fitness and health is far more important than strength, so i will kepp that, plus, i am very fit anyway and eat a lot so i don't think the cv will be be too detrimental.
    my martial arts are my number one priority. EVERYTHING, and i do mean everything comes second to that.

    but thanks for the bench advise. cheers boys.
