I really want to focus on my chest but not sure if this is enough.

Monday- Chest and Tris

Tuesday- Biceps and back

Wednesday- Legs and Gluts

Thursday- Chest and Tris

Friday- Abs

5 reps and 5 sets of flat bench. I fail somewhere in the 5 set. Not sure how long I should wait between sets.
2-3 Sets of Dips
2-3 Sets of Dumbbell press. Should I also approach this in the 5 sets 5 rep fashion?

3 sets of 15 reps on preacher bar.
3 sets of free weight curls (both arms at once)
I might need some ideas for my back..deadlight?
3 Sets of 15-20 pull ups

3 Sets of squats to parallel with a barbell.
2-3 Sets of Lunges

Thursday: if the pecs are one muscle, what the advantage of incline press other then also hitting your shoulders more?
5 reps and 5 sets of incline.
2-3 Sets of Dips
2-3 Sets of Dumbbell incline press. Should I also approach this in the 5 sets 5 rep fashion?
Any other suggestions?


3-5 sets of Legs raises.
2-3 sets of crunches
2 sets of obletes on each side
any other interesting ab toning ideas?

Since this is the powerlifting/olympic lifting forum, here is your new routine:
Day 1: Squat 5x5, Bench 5x5
Day 2: Snatches 10 sets of 2
Day 3: rest
Day 4: Clean and Jerk: 10 sets of 2
Day 5: Deads 5x5, chins 5x5
Day 6&7: rest

What are snatches, cleans, and jerks?


I'm a lifting noob :(

If my current plan isn't powerlifting, what is it?

And those squats should be ATF.
