    Currently I usually do a 3 day 'program'

    1 - Incline, Pullup, Flat, Cable Row
    2 - Squat, Deadlift, Incline
    3 - Arms, Shoulders - Curls, triceps extension, skull crushes/close grip bench, etc.

    But a mate wants to step up the tempo and do a 6 day split, I've looked at (don't laugh) Arnold 6 day split in his book. But that's far too much for a intermediate lifter that I am.

    So does anyone have/know of a good 6 day program. Goal of strength over size. 2 hour max workouts, afternoons. This is only for a few weeks, as I know the tempo wont be able to be sustained at my age and current supplement intake.

    Ideas and constructive criticism welcomed. I'm not looking to cut down on the days.

    Yeah Purs routine is only 4 days and he really wants to do a mon-sat workout for a few weeks.

    Yeah I know .. hence me saying that's far too much for me, special on the supplements I'm only taking (protein).

    Maybe someone more experienced than me can affirm this but I don't think that you're going to benefit from 6 days vs 4 at this level and you'll probably end up overtraining and burning out.

    Yeah I keep telling him that. I might try and convince him to play with the 4 day routine.

    well it can't be any worse than your current routine so you might as well try it

    Yeah gone with the 4 day split, moved Chest to #1. But probably do some deads on Saturday for a 5 day routine.
