I'm a relative newbie to lifting (been doing it a couple months) and was looking for some help with creating a good training schedule.
Time constraints limit my sessions to 45-60 minutes each, which gives me time to work about 2 body parts.
Right now I have it split into three sessions: chest/triceps, biceps/back, and shoulders/legs.
I was thinking I could do those three, then take a day off, then repeat, and so on and so forth. I would do cardio on my off days and maybe on one of my lifting days.
My goal is to get bigger, but not necessarily "bulk" in the traditional sense. I want to build muscle size but not fat, so I'm willing to accept slow gains.
I'm 5'9, 135 lbs right now by the way (18 years old).
Welcome to the forum. I am fairly new too. I see you already have a workout schedule but wanted to mention it anyway. Have you checked out the WBB1 routine yet? It sticks to a 3 day a week workout and concentrated on compound movements. Pretty much works out all groups. That is what I started with and saw great gains (10 lbs in 3 months) of course with a good diet. I am 6'-1" and started at about 135. I did this routine for 3 months. It works great and I know many around here can attest to that. Something to think about. Like you said though you have a routine and it may be working great for you. If so keep at it. Eat eat eat.
