Also list how many times a week you workout and how long it takes you.
I go 3x a week and do 6-7exercises. Legs,arms/shoulders,chest/back.
Each workout it about an hour long.
If i went to the gym 4 or 5x a week could i cut my time down to about 40minutes?
I would like to be in the gym a total of 1 hour including cardio. Any ideas?

i was thinking about adding this and doing a 4day routine
Seated Leg Press
Now im not trying to get HUGE but i would like to gain some muscle, at the same time i find it very hard to find time to go to the gym since its out of the way... Now the thing is there is a gym here at work but its not quite as good as the 24hr i go to.

i do each muscle once a week. somethin like this
traps: 6"...that's the great virtue of the free market, of the private market. It enables people...who hate one another...who don't speak the same language...who would fight one another if they had the chance, to cooperate economically. We were able to deal with China when China was a communist state. Even though we thought that that was a terrible arrangement, we could still cooperate. And that's what markets enable people to do. They bring freedom with them."

Found a good balanced number of exercises for myself at 8. I do full body workouts, usually every other day and occasionally take 2 days off in a row.
I start with "big" compounds (bench press, deadlifts, pullups(downs)) and finish it off with isolators (EZ bar curls, lateral raises, hamstr curls...)
Also, I try to alternate the big excercises, like bench press for pecs on one day and dips on the other...
This approach has worked magic for me so far.

PPL twice a week. Different exercises on the second day typically. Legs only once a week tho.
Chest - 4 exercises
Delts - 4 exercises
Tris - 3 or 4
Back - 5 exercises
Bis - 4 exercises
Legs lately I just been trying to squat and work calves. I think I might add some other stuff in maybe leg press at least.
Abs 2-3 times a week , 3-4 exercises.
