    Just curious as to what you guys think of this 3-day split routine? I was following a 3-day split routine for about 5 months and seem to have made better progress doing that then I have been with Pur's routine. What do you guys think?

    Day 1 - Chest/Tri
    Incline - 3-4 sets 10-12 reps
    Flat - 3 sets 8-10 reps
    Flys - 3 sets 10-12 reps
    Declines - 3 sets 10-12 reps
    Rope Push Down - 3 sets 10-15 reps
    Wide Grip E-Z Curl Bar Style Pull-Downs - 3 sets 10-12 reps
    V-Bar Push downs - 3 sets 10-12 reps
    Dips - 2-3 sets 10-12 reps

    Day 2 - Back/Bi
    Dead Lifts - 3-4 sets 8-10 reps
    Pullups (wide grip/close grip alternating every other 3 day routine) - 3 sets - up to 12
    Bent-Over BB Rows or Cable Rows (switching every other 3 day routine) - 3-4 sets - 10-12 reps
    Pull-Downs (wide grip/close grip alternating every other 3 day routine) - 3 sets - 10-12
    Curls - 3 sets 10-12 reps
    Preacher Curls - 3 sets 10-12 reps
    Hammer Curls - 3 sets 10-12 reps

    Day 3 - Shoulders/Legs
    DB Press - 3 sets 10-12 reps
    Front Raises - 3 sets 10-12 reps
    Side Raises - 3 sets 10-12 reps
    Reverse Flys - 3 sets 10-12 reps
    Leg Extensions - 3-4 sets 10-12 reps
    Squats - 3-4 sets 8-10 reps
    Leg Press - 3 sets 10-12 reps
    Leg Curls - 3-4 sets 10-12 reps

    Day 4 - Off

    Repeat... basically hitting each muscle twice a week.

    Does this seem to be a decent routine? This is what my roommate follows, and it seems to be working quite well for him. Let me know what you guys think!

    pretty shitty, but if it works for you then why change.

    If all you can train is 3 days a week then why not just do a conventional push/pull routine.

    does not make sense to me to work your upper body 2.5 days and lower .5 days (IMO)
    lower body makes up more than half of all your musculature...so shouldnt you give it at least half the time... 2 upper 2 lower?

    If you wanna do a bb type routine with some functional strength I like
    day 1 horizontal push/pull
    day 2 hip dominant movements
    day 3 vertical push/pull
    day 4 quad dominant movements

    rinse repeat...

    ps I did not invent this want to give credit where its due but can not remember
