    Just wondering... is it better to do a little bit of everything every day, or work on a different muscle group every time? :sadwavey:

    If you say split it up, what should it be split up into?

    you can do an upper and lower split.

    me:
    chest/tri
    back
    forearm/bi
    shoulder
    legs/ab

    i alternate every other week though, so that isnt my main routine split.

    you don't need a specific day for biceps or triceps and you have no rest days

    why not? i've been seeing good gains on this routine... and i usually do legs/shoulders on same day, my mistake... so i have the weekends as my off days

    damnit just do what works.. there is no right or wrong way for God sakes

    and I completely agree, giving biceps and triceps their own day is just about as retarded as the special ed squatting thread

    so you cram legs and shoulders both into one day but decide to give biceps an entire day? where is the logic in that?
