    Do These Workouts Seem Balanced to You?






    I am setting up a 3 day split to hit each muscle group hard once a week.
    I would love some input on whether my routine seems balanced to you per day.
    This is what I've come up with:

    New Workout Three Day Split:

    Monday: Legs:
    ~Leg Press or Squats: 2x6 / 2x8
    ~Lunges: 3x8
    -Superset Between:
    ~Leg Extensions: 3x8
    ~Leg Curls: 3x8
    -Superset Between:
    ~Hip Adductor: 3x10
    ~Standing Calve Raises: 3x8
    -Superset Between:
    ~Hip Abductor: 3x10
    ~Sitting Calve Raises: 3x8

    Wednesday: Chest + Triceps + Shoulders:
    ~Bench Press: 2x6 / 2x8
    ~Incline Dumbbell Press: 4x8
    ~Flat Dumbbell Flyes: 3x10
    ~Arnold Dumbbell Shoulder Press: 3x8
    ~Alternating Close-Grip Press / Scull Crushers: 3x8

    Friday: Back + Biceps:
    ~Stiff Legged Deadlifts: 4x8

    -Superset Between:
    ~Back Extensions: 3x10 and
    ~Shrugs: 3x8
    --------------------------------------
    ~Closed-Grip Seated Rows: 3x8
    ~Wide-Grip Pull-ups or Pull-downs: 3x8
    ~Hammer/Parallel Pull-ups: 3x6
    ~Dumbbell or Barbell Curls: 3x8

    -Rowing, Running, and Abs Dispersed throughout Tues/Thurs/Sat/Sun.

    Comments? Thank You!

    I like it overall

    Wednesday: Chest + Triceps + Shoulders:
    ~Bench Press: 2x6 / 2x8
    ~Incline Dumbbell Press: 4x8
    ~Flat Dumbbell Flyes: 3x10
    ~Arnold Dumbbell Shoulder Press: 3x8
    ~Alternating Close-Grip Press / Scull Crushers: 3x8

    You gotta get some dips in here...I would replace the D.B. flyes with dips and do a few sets of Cable or D.B flyes at the end if you feel like it.
    I would also be more inclined to go with the skull crushers instead of the C.G bench press because of alll the press work you have already.
