From looking around on this forum it seems that most people workout each muscle group only once a week. I have been lifting for about 4 years and from my experience I could never gain if I only trained the muscles once a week. I am an ectomorph bady type so maybe this has something to do with it.
But what seems to work the best?
Here is my routine right now. Tell me if you think its over training or do some people just need to work harder?
Wednesday: Legs/ Shoulders
sat and sun: off
I usually do push/pull split but trying to focus on my arms right now.
yeah, I agree with the asian sensation
I realize that you are focusing on your arms, but if you are not progressing, it's likely overtraining's the cause. Tris are involved in all chest work (except flyes) and biceps are involved in almost all back work. So you are training your arms four times a week. Two directly and two indirectly. Were I you, I would train arms directly only once a week, because they are being trained twice more when you do chest and back.
Yeah your split is similar to one I used and I never got anywhere.
Hmmmm, triceps getting hit all 5 days per week, chest and back paired together, legs and back on consecutive days, biceps getting worked 4 days per week ..... I don't know where to begin with the problems in this routine.
