    Rough Routine, Needs shaping up

    Well, I got myself some dumbells, tricep bar and a curling bar.

    Here is a rough routene I came up with, and just want some feedback on:

    Monday (Chest / Tricep)
    Chest:-
    1. Seated Bench Press
    2. Dumbell Bench Press
    3. Pec Deck (Good excersise?)

    Tricep:-
    1. Tricep Pressdowns
    2. Tricep Bar

    Tuesday (Legs / Abs)
    Legs:-
    1. Leg Curls
    2. Leg Extensions

    Abs:-
    1. Crunches
    2. Weighted Situps

    Wednesday (Off)
    N/A

    Thursday (Bicep / Back)
    Bicep:-
    1. Dumbell Curls
    2. Curling Bar Curls

    Back:-
    1. Rowing to Chest
    2. Lat Pulldowns

    Friday (Shoulder / Neck)
    Shoulder:-
    1. Shoulder Press (MultiGym)
    2. Dumbell Shoulder Press
    3. Front Dumbell Raises (Name?)

    Neck:-
    1. Shrugs

    Please note that my routene consists of using only Dumbells, Tricep Bar, Curling Bar and a small MultiGym

    This routene is very rough and would like you to please modify it to make it look more appropriate, because I think its a little messy and maybe need to add a few more excersises.

    Please post your comments

    For your triceps, try some skull crushers/ overhead extensions. Also if you could find something to do pull ups with then that would be great for your lats, seeing as you'd be doing widegrip pull ups. Good luck!

    Do you not have access to a commercial gym?

    Well, with the equipment that you stated that you had, you will just will not progress that far. Squats and deadlifts are the biggest mass producers when it comes to adding muscle mass, and it will be difficult to utilize those with just the equipment that you have.

    However if you are somewhat new at weight-training then the equipment you have and the routine you are following are fine for now. But if you want maximum gains I would try and find a gym as soon as possible or once financial situations are a little less strained.

    On your leg day I would add walking lunges (using the DBs).

    lol. I read that "Plus my monkeys tight for the next couple of months"
    I do deadlifts and squats at home. You could buy a barbell with some weights for both of those exercises. Deadlifts you just need enough weight. Squats you can clean the bar and put it on your shoulders, if you're just starting you won't be able to squat much. I clean and squat just 90 pounds now. When I say squats I mean ass to floor squats. When you start lifting more weight, then you'll have to look at other options. Like a squat rack or a gym membership.

    Well, I am new to weight training and I guess that my current equipment is sufficient.

    I have 2 general questions:
    1. Is the "21's theory" any good? (Barbel curls w/ barbell)
    2. Is the Pec-Deck any good? I read somewhere before that the Pec-Deck isn't much use

    Why? Doing my back first will wear out my biceps before I actually hit the biceps properly.

    Exactly, only you have it backwards. You don't want you biceps to limit the amount of weight you do with your back. Same reason you do chest before triceps. You should do you larger compound exercises first.

    Unless you want big arms and no back.
    Deal with it.

    Personally I think both of these exercises are pretty useless.
