    thinkin about a new routine

    I was thinking of trying something like this, any thoughts.

    Monday push day
    bench press 8-6-5-3-3
    Incline dumbbell press 3x10
    skull crushers 3x10
    side raises 3x10

    Tuesday pull day
    preacher curls 3x10
    deadlifts 3x12
    bent over rows 3x10

    Wednesday legs
    squats 5x5
    lunges 3x10
    leg curls and reverse leg curls 3x10

    Thursday off

    Friday push day
    incline bench press 3x10
    dumbbell flyes 3x10
    shrugs 3x10
    close-grip bench press 4x8

    Saturday pull day
    reverse grip pull downs 3x10
    one arm dumbbell row 3x10
    incline dumbbell curls

    Sunday legs
    stiff leg deadlifts 3x10
    squats 6x2
    lunges

    i would also throw cardio in there and mix up the workout every week, any comments would be appreciated

    Shrugs are pull, and the second push day switch out the shrugs for a diret should movement. Military press hsould be good, 2x10.

    Also, do 3 on 2 off. You need more rest days.

    Shurgs are for your traps, that's why I said add shoulders. Military press is not bad for your spine, if you use weight that allows good form.

    Shrugs = traps, as mike said. I am curious why so many people have this misconception that they are for shoulders. I agree that more rest days are needed as well.

    what are your goals ? if its bodybuilding you want to be separating all your body parts not this push pull crap that some guy thought up and sold routines in his books, then guys read it and started believing in it ... do 12 sets for large 9 for small train 4-5 days a week, dont buy into all this overtraining hype, what pro athlete dont train his ass off? just another $$$ train.

    Most athletes are on steroids anyway. Doing low volume high intensity is not hype. Push pull legs is a good split, what is wrong with it?

    Just curious. It's nice to see another lifter my age. There aren't very many of us. PM me if you ever want the routine I'm doing. It's been working wonders for me.

    I would rest a day after each workout. Or, you could try 2 on and 1 off.
    The only time it's bad to feel the burn is when you're peeing...
