    I have tons of time on my hands since i only go to school and work part time and can easily make it to the gym everyday. I decided since I can make it atleast 5 times a day I mine as well take 1 muscle group and beat the shit out of it for that day.

    Usually my week goes like this..

    Mon- Chest
    Tues- Back
    Weds- Shoulders
    Thurs- Arms (biceps,triceps)
    Fri- Legs

    On each day I do about 5-6 exercises x 3-4 sets per each exercise, per muscle.

    Some people are saying that its a good idea to do this since i can make it to the gym and other people are telling me theres no reason to do this and to just do 3 exercises x 4 reps each.. for ex

    Mon- chest tri
    Weds- Back Bi
    Fri- shoulders legs..

    I used to do that, but I just feel I work my muscles harder and get that sore feeling (which I love) better when I only work out 1 muscle group a day.


    Should I just keep doing what I'm Doing or is there somthing I should change.

    I use a five day split as well since I have all the time in the world at 5am. I agree with you that you feel you are getting a better workout than a 3 day split.
