    3 day split with super sets I'm basically going to be doing what kenn is doing.
    I have got my measurments yet I will probably get them done tonight but I am 6'1 and weight 178lbs

    I haven't set goals yet I have to see where I'm at in the gym. The last time I worked out in a gym was last summer and I was at 200lbs then.

    Alright so its been damn near two years since I have put a thread in but I need to get back into this.

    So far this has be my routine:

    Monday
    Biceps and Back

    Wednesday
    Chest and Tri's

    Friday
    Legs and Shoulders

    I'll have my numbers later but my journal is in my car and it is almost zero degrees outside.

    Bicep routine is:
    DB curls
    Cable curls
    Preacher curls the ones where you go all the way down half way up the down again and up and count it as one. If anyone as the name of it let me know.

    Back
    DB Rows
    Lat pull downs
    Shrugs

    Chest
    DB Bench
    DB Incline
    DB Flys (It was DB Decline but that seemed too redundant)

    Triceps
    Single arm cable push downs
    Overhead cable extentions

    Legs
    Calf Raises
    Duck Squats
    Straight leg dead lifts (Although I have been kind of a wuss when it comes to legs I'm super paranoid about hurting my back)

    Shoulders
    Millitary press to warm up
    Front Raises
    Side Raises

    I'm told I have natural shoulders, so the grow pretty fast. although low reps (which I have been doing) have no been as effective as high reps so I think I might switch back to high reps.

    So far I have been just going into the gym and just doing my routine, its been a month so I better start figuring my goals out. However I am very scared of bulking I was (the Fat Kid) until I was twenty so the thought about gettting puposly gaining fat is hard to chisl in to my head.

    Anyway tips a very appriciated, I'll have my complete routine up tomorrow.

    You better help Alke get back in the gym!

    WB, good luck with everything. Routine looks fine, but why not sub in pullups for lat pulldown and squats/hack squats for duck squats?
