After recently posting my first questions on this site a week ago someone replied that I should read through the articles on the site first. I've done this and learned a lot and have plenty of new ideas (great site with some excellent articles and debates). I would like to ask a question (or questions about routines and specifically which excercises to combine (or not combine) and why.
Firstly I plan to follow a routine based on DC/Doggcrap/dante concept I found on this forum from a few years back. Not sure if its the best, but its the one that makes most sense to me. Doggcrap recommends the following:
monday=chest, shoulders, triceps, back width, back thickness
wednesday=biceps, forearms, calves, hamstrings, quads
friday-repeat of mondays bodyparts
monday-repeat of wenesdays bodyparts
So with all body parts split into 2 workouts. I plan to do the following
monday = Back, Shoulders, Forearms, Abs
wednesday = Chest, Biceps, Triceps, Legs
friday = repeat of mondays bodyparts
Sunday = repeat of wenesdays bodyparts
Dogcrapps method involves low volume, single set, high intensity workouts.
My question is 'Can the Body-Part split I mentioned above work ok?', It is different to the recommended one. Can I do Chest and then arms in one workout? Can I do Back and then shoulders in one workout?
I always used to do Back and Biceps for example, but found that after doing back that my biceps were quite worn out, and that they wouldnt get a full workout....therefore decided to sepearte back and biceps.
The reason I have tried to vear away from Doggcraps exact routine is that I dont like the idea of doing chest, shoulders, triceps, and back in one workout (even if it is for one set per exercise).
Any views on this and my thinking here would be most welcome.
