    looks like my routine, just incorporate thursday into the other days. You are not doing any major muscle groups then anyways, just chill then and thank me for the day off and the extra size you will get. I used to train 5 days a week and not as much results as I get 3 days of lifting a week. I do 5 min of shoulders a week because they are too big on me compared to my biceps but just add it in on chest day btwn chest and tris. Calves do on legs day. Abs, whenever
