Hey all, just found these forums and wanted some opinions. im 5'10 170lbs. Im looking to make a 3-day split routine for myself for monday, wednesday, and friday. This is what I have come up with I would like to know your opinions.
Monday: 15min Treadmill,Chest,Triceps,Abs
Wednesday: 15min Treadmill, Shoulders, Legs, Abs
Friday: 15min Treadmill, Back, Biceps, Abs
I will do 4 exercises for each muscle. Each exercise I will do 4 sets which include reps of 10,10,8,6 with 4 different exercises.
For Example: CHEST
Cable Crossover: 10rep/100lbs 10rep/100lbs 8rep/110lbs 6rep/120lbs
Dumbell Press: 10rep/100lbs 10rep/100lbs 8rep/110lba 6rep/120lbs
Dumbell Flyes: 10rep/80lbs 10rep/80lbs 8rep/90lbs 6rep/100lbs
Bench Press: 10rep/120lbs 10rep/120lbs 8rep/130lbs 6rep/140lbs
This is just an example not how much I actually lift. My main goal is to gain muscle, while losing a little fat. Does this sound ok to everyone? I only have time for a 3-day split routine. I plan on starting next monday.

If you're new, why not try out WBB Workout #1? Its a really good 3 day split.
In my opinion you're overtraining doing 4 exercises per bodypart, and also you should only train abs once, maybe twice a week. I think three is over doing it. Remember to train them like any other muscle as well, doing weighted exercises for low reps, not endless crunches.
Is it ok to workout a body part once a week?
Yes, iryoku, it's ok. Stick to 3-way split!
"And if that doesnt work, bend her over, tear off the stretchpants, and go wild on the little slut. When you're done, drop her like a missed rep. When she's regained her senses, complain that she was making too much noise. She will then realize the error of her ways, and give you her number." - Budiak
"I have a girl that i have ride around with me everywhere, just cuz she's a ditz and amuses me. its great." - Ace Dogg
Yup, 3-way split works fine.
You kill me in a dream, you better wake up and apologize....
