    Mondays-Biceps/Legs

    alternating curls 4x10
    preacher curls 4x10
    hammer curls 4x10

    squats 3x10
    leg press 3x10
    stiff-legged dead lifts 3x10
    (we're REALLY weak on legs, once they get built up more, we'll be doing 4 sets 10 times)



    Wednesdays-Triceps/back

    Tricep pushdowns 4x10
    reverse pushdowns (same thing but pulling down with my hands facing up) skullcrushers 4x10
    overhead extensions
    Tate press
    Decline bench 4x10

    Lat pull-downs 4x10
    Seated rows 4x10
    Deadlifts 3x10
    T-bar rows 4x10



    Friday-Chest/Shoulders

    Flat bench DB press 4x10
    Incline bench 4x10
    Deltoid Flys 4x10


    Shoulder press 4x10
    Shrugs 4x10

    I increase weight after each set.

    Am I pretty much covering everything adequately? I know I need to start doing cardio really bad.... :hs:

    It would help if you said how many sets and reps you are doing of each exercise. I can see a few flaws, such as having more bicep work than tricep work, and only having one true shoulder movement.

    Does it matter?

    We usually do a bicep/tricep workout then a leg/back workout and go back and forth.

    Is it better to do all the workouts for say...legs together?

    Big muscles first, small muscles last.

    Thats weird. My triceps are f-ing huge compared to my biceps. The guy I go to the gym with lifts the same as me on biceps but 30lbs less on triceps.

    What other should movements can I do?

    Tate press, close grip bench, skullcrushers, rope pushdowns, overhead extensions, etc.

    Not necessarily. Before doing my current 4 day split, I was doing:

    M: Chest/Tris
    W: Back/Bis
    F: Legs/Shoulders

    Listed in order of body part done.

    if u are bulking u dont have to do cardio, although it is not a bad idea, be sure to eat mroe. I would change the reps up some, and ad abs, u do not have one ab exerciser there.
    change ur shit up to something like this
    legs/shoulders
    Chest/tris
    back/bis
    and start with movements liek Squat Deadlift, Benchpress
    Compund>>> accesory
