    Too Much Volume????

    Does this routine seem like too much volume? Ive been bodybuilding for about 1 year and a half now: Im 16, 6 foot, and weigh 175 (with noticable abs). I try to eat between 140-160g of protein a day. I train three times a week on non consecutive days. I may or may not precede each exercise with one light warmup set for 12-15 repetitions that is NOT taken to failure. I like high volume, but I just want an opinion if this is too much.

    Day 1: Chest, Back & Forearm's
    Incline Barbell/Dumbbell Press 3x10, 8, 6
    Decline Barbell/Dumbbell Press 3x10, 8, 6

    Wide Grip Pulldown 3x8, 8, 8
    Underhand Grip Pulldown 3x10, 10, 10
    Reverse Straight Bar Curl 3x10, 10, 10
    Behind-the-Back Wrist Curl 3x12, 12, 12

    Day 2: Lower Body
    Barbell Squats 4x10, 8, 6, 6
    Smith Machine Front Squat 4x8, 8, 8, 8
    Leg Press or Leg Extension 4x10, 10, 10, 10
    Stiff Leg Deadlift 3x10, 8, 6
    Lying Leg Curl 3x8, 8, 8
    Seated Leg Curl 3x10, 10, 10
    Standing Calf Raise 3x12, 12, 12
    Leg Press Toe Raise 3x15, 15, 15
    Seated Calf Raise 3x20, 20, 20

    Day 3: Shoulders & Upper Arm's
    Behind-the-Neck or Smith Machine Shoulder Press 3x10, 8, 6
    Standing/Seated Dumbbell Side Lateral Raise 3x8, 8, 8
    Bent Over Dumbbell/Cable Lateral Raise 3x10, 10, 10
    Dumbbell Lying Side Lateral Raise 3x10, 10, 10
    Dumbbell/Barbell Shrug 3x12, 12, 12
    Lying Tricep Extension 3x10, 8, 6
    Straight Barbell Curl 3x10, 8, 6
    Machine Tricep Dips 3x8, 8, 8
    Seated/Standing Dumbbell Curl 3x8, 8, 8
    One Arm Tricep Extension or Tricep Pressdown 3x10, 10, 10
    Dumbbell/Cable Concentration Curl 3x10, 10, 10

    Thanks for any body's opinion

    Try giving the Dorian Yates Blood & Guts style training a try. He advocates really low volume. About 3 sets per bodypart. I've been using it for about 3 weeks while cutting just so I wouldn't lose strength. I've actually put on a lb. of muscle while dropping 2.4 lbs. of fat. They have a video series on the site. Check it out.

    You just listed a retarded number of exercises to do, but if it works for you, go for it.
