Here is my new workout routine, I would love for all you work out fiends to critique it so I can improve it. I weigh 170, I'm 5'11. My goal is to get stronger and gain muscle, and also impress the ladies, i mean ****, who doesn't want to impress the ladies. I take a scoop of whey protein every workout day.
Back: pull ups, lat pull downs, seated row, lower back press thing
Biceps: concentration curls, barbell curls
Forearms: wood stick with rope thing
Chest: flat benchpress, incline w/ dumbells, decline on gravity bench thing, flys
Triceps: dips, skull crushers
Shoulders: seated military press, shrugs
Wednesday: Legs- Squats, calf raises, leg extensions, leg curls, what else should I do?
Thursday: Back, Bis, Fores, abs
Friday: Chest, Tris, Sholders
Any advice on things to take away or change or add, is much appreciated, thanks in advance!
Stick with the advise on the last reply of your 2nd thread about a workout program. If you really don't feel like doing research just do this and eat.
Over Head Press 3X5
Dead Lift 1X5
Bench Press 3X5
Power Clean 5X3
nah, **** that workout im doin it my way, ill add deads on back day and ill be straight, just look at that work out its near perfect. 6 days/week, im gonna get ripped
yeah i was a dick the way i said that, my b. but really, if i add deads, ill be doing deads squats and bench and a lot more. and since I'm concentrating on only certain muscle groups everyday and not overlapping too much, this workout should be really good right?
It sounds like you have it all wraped up man. good luck
If you know all there is to know, why'd you come on this site seeking advice?
"The only easy day was yesterday."
You ask for help, then turn it down. Why post?
6 days is too much. You build muscle out of the gym, not in the gym.

you're a bit cocky man. like stated above, why come for our help if you don't change anything?
if you want to get strong and get big, you're doing wayyyy too many exercises. go with the 2-day split post above by Elmx. you want low number of set/reps with heavy weights.
and 6 days is way too much. 3 days is enough, go mon/wed/fri. you want at least 20 hours rest between each workout.

I've been doing Starting Strength religiously for 2.5 months and all I can say is that it works. Even though I'm married, I am getting chicks everyday. I can't keep them away. They don't care that I have a ****ty attitude or that I slap them around. They just want me for my ripped body.
Seriously, Listen to the guys trying to give you real advice. 3 days a week and you are good to go. Eat right and sleep. I have increased my squat by 100lbs and my bench by 40lbs. 2.5 months dude, 40 minutes a day, 3 days a week. That's all.
You will need a hell of a lot more protein that one scoop after every workout. I take at least 5 scoops a day, unless I eat a bunch of lean meat.
Get a clue dude.
