    with all the info i've gathered on nutrition over the past few months that diet looks pretty shitty to me

    too many unnecessary items

    why would you want OJ and cereal before bed? pure carbs!

    one more thing... from personal experience i wouldn't recommend training chest and shoulders on the same day... but maybe that's just my own personal preference...

    i prefer this split:

    day 1 - chest, tri's, abs
    day 2 - back, bi's (abs if i skipped them on chest day)
    day 3 - rest
    day 4 - legs, abs
    day 5 - shoulders, traps (plus abs if i skipped them on leg day)
    day 6 - rest

    if for some reason i need to train 3 days in a row, i usually take a 2 day rest... but not always...
