    Sean, Trips-
    Thanks...was kinda nice to pull those up. Kind of gave a glimmer of hope from my chest not responding...usually, its always my back that has been slow to respond...

    Tonight is delts. I'll keep the workouts easy for another week, then when I go back to day shift, will go to a more high speed schedule.

    Sun: Work
    Mon: Work
    Tues: Work
    Wed: Off
    Thurs: Work
    Fri: Work
    Sat: Off

    So...am thinking of this schedule:

    Day 1: back/legs
    Day 2: chest/delts
    Day 3: arms
    Day 4: off
    Day 5: back/legs
    Day 6: chest/delts
    Day 7: off
    Day 8: back/legs
    Day 9 .....etc....

    -or-

    Day 1: chest/back
    Day 2: delts/Legs
    Day 3: arms
    Day 4: off
    Day 5: chest/back
    Day 6: delts/Legs
    Day 7: off
    Day 8: arms
    Day 9 .....etc....


    Inputs would be greatly appreciated...tis about time turn it up in dis joint, yo!

    Wish I could stay on nights...have the gym to myself and be able to 'hog' a couple stations at once to super set my workouts...

    true that, but it's nice to see it in your own journal, when you go back to check out a workout, and oh yeah, there's B's avatar again right there.

    It has got to be the best avatar ever hands down, (well besides the one I had of my son, but that's an entirely different ballpark altogether!)

    So it looks like you are only working out on your "work" days is that correct? In that case, why don't you try the old 4 day upper vertical/upper horizontal/quads/hamstring type workout?

    You could do:
    Sun: Off
    Mon: Upper horizontal
    Tues: Quad dominant legs
    Wed: off
    Thurs: Upper vertical
    Fri: hamstring dominant legs
    Sat: off

    Exercises, sets and reps of your choice

    I agree. It would be even better with her hands down.

    I don't really like the planned workout schedules either. I much prefer something like Stew suggested.

    again...BRAVO! (Billie...are you listening, dear? My email is......)


    Thanks guys, but I figure to take off the days I have off. it'll just be easier logistcally for me.

    I get kinda busy on my days off with the little things, laundry, sleeping... whatever I need to get done on my own time and don't want to start missing workouts like I have in the past...those days are over.
    every day I work: I work out.

    Do you like the push/push or the push/pull better...or stick with one body part per day and just rotate thru on my schedule? That is what is just me.

    With my old scheule adapted to this:
    Day 1: Chest/Bis
    Day 2: Legs
    Day 3: Delts/Tris
    Day 4: off
    Day 5: Back
    Day 6: Chest/Bis
    Day 7: off
    Day 8: Legs
    Day 9 .....etc....

    this would give me 4-5 days from hitting same BP to rest it up.
    ( I hate training BI's, so train them with favorite...chest) And...if the tendonitis flares up, can just drop them that day and know that they'll get hit later in the week with my back workout...

    Well, I think I put the workout days I suggested around your work days, so the only difference is that on one of your working days, you have off from the gym, otherwise, all the other days are on work days.

    For you just getting back into things, I would much prefer you do a movement based workout like I suggested centered around the big compound exercises, and don't worry about the little things until you get your mass and strength up back where you want it to be.

    Heck, even I was thinking about going to a bodypart type split, but I decided against it, it's just silly to not do all the push muscle groups all together when everything is already warmed up and ready to go. It sucks to warm up for a heavy bench workout and then have to warm up again 3 days later for a separate shoulder or tricep workout, it's much easier to just finish the chest stuff, then bang out the tricep and shoulder stuff and then rest for 3 days and hit them all again, instead of just parts of it.

    Capish?

    I can smelllll what the Rock is cookin'! However...I am used to one BP per workout...so kinda hard to break from that.
    also gonna need a little help with your thoughts...as I'm getting tired...

    So...
    'Upper Horizontal' would be:
    Mil presses, raises and upright rows and pullups/downs? that's about all I can think of?

    'Upper Vert' would be:
    bench presses and rows?

    Quads would be:
    squats and ext

    and hammies would be:
    Deads and leg curls?

    Is my tired brain grasping your idea?
