    Hey guys, I've been an on and off again lifter for about the past 6 years, haven't really been serious until recently (2.5 months)...anyways I'm looking for feedback on my routine :noes:

    I'm also doing this all at home with a BB, EZ bar, DB's, and a bench. Legs will be included soon, I'm looking for a squat rack...I mainly do 4 sets/10,8,6,8-10 reps per exercise...

    Monday
    Chest/Tris
    Flat BB bench
    Incline BB Bench
    Flat DB flys
    Single DB arm extensions
    Skull crushers
    Close-grip bench

    Wednesday
    Back/Bis
    T-bar row
    Bent over BB row
    Deadlifts (just started doing for the first time last week)
    Standing single DB curl
    Standing EZ bar curl (alternate with 21’s every other week)
    Concentration curls

    Friday
    Shoulders
    Arnold DB Press
    Lateral Raise
    Front Raise
    Upright BB rows
    DB Shrugs


    Tues/Thurs/Sat/Sun

    Cardio

    :ugh:

    :hsugh:

    For the routine, some suggestions:

    Instead of doing both BB flat and incline, switch one to DB and alternate every week.
    Do deads first on back days; since you are doing T-bars and BB rows, try to have a wide grip on your BB rows since you will have a close one on T-bars.
    I'm pretty sure that upright rows are a compound movement, so I like to do them before lat/front raises.
    Do you need to do three tri/bi lifts? If you want to keep them all, group two or all of them as a superset on respective days.

    And, yeah, do some legs.

    Holy lurker

    You don't need a squat rack to do lunges/SLDL's etc.
