    I'm adding legs to my routine, and need advice

    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.

    Monday:
    Back: pull ups, lat pull downs, seated row, lower back press thing
    Biceps: concentration curls, barbell curls
    Forearms: wood stick with rope thing
    Abwork
    cardio: bike

    Tuesday:
    Chest: flat benchpress, incline w/ dumbells, decline on gravity bench thing, flys
    Triceps: dips, skull crushers
    Shoulders: seated military press, shrugs
    cardio: run

    Wednesday: Legs- Squats, calf raises, leg extensions, leg curls, what else should I do?

    Thursday: Back, Bis, Fores, abs

    Friday: Chest, Tris, Sholders
    Saturday: Legs

    Sunday: rest

    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.

    Workout 1
    Squat 3X5
    Over Head Press 3X5
    Dead Lift 1X5

    Workout 2
    Squat 3X5
    Bench Press 3X5
    Power Clean 5X3

    Youll be a monster with this split. Id probably sub BO rows for the cleans until you get your form down.

    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?

    Too much workout and not enough rest. Bottom line. Read a little more.

    If you know all there is to know, why'd you come on this site seeking advice?

    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.
    Give chalk a chance.

    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.

    Dude,

    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.

    because he wanted to hear how brilliant his split is. OP, your split is brilliant, stick with it don't listen to anyone on here.
    Stats: Bodyweight : Current= 150 lbs, Height = 5ft11.5

    Bench Press:160 lbs/Squat:225 lbs,/Deadlift:305/Total:675lbs/

    Not strong yet, but getting there.
