    Anything wrong with my routine? REPS

    Been lifting for almost three months now, here is the routine I am currently on. If there are any changes you guys recommend then let me know.

    Chest/Triceps
    Back/Biceps
    Legs/Shoulders
    Rest
    Repeat

    Is this a good routine? I have been going for hypertrophy lately and I seem to be getting bigger, however my strength gains are basically at a standstill for compounds. I want a great body but want strength almost as badly... it's difficult what do I do? Try hit about 6-7 reps so I can get a bit of both? Thanks.

    Move shoulders to chest/triceps day and you'll have a push/pull/legs routine, which is great in my opinion.
    I wouldn't want anything "extra" on my leg day either because of how exhausting it is.

    That's awesome advice, I think I will take that up straight away. One issue however, I fear I'm already spending far too long in the gym per session. Sometimes my workouts can take up to an hour and a half, how many exercises should I be doing per body part? Especially now I have to fit 3 into one day.

    I do a 4-day split where I do:

    Chest/tri
    Back/bi
    Shoulders/abs
    Legs/calves

    rest repeat.
    This way I don't mess up my shoulders, but if you want to do 3 days rest repeat, stick with a push/pull/legs.

    I'm not really qualified to be giving advice on this but i'll share my thoughts.
    I think one or two good exercises per muscle is enough. Front delts and triceps are gonna get some work while benching so there's no need to go crazy on them.

    I did this for a while before changing to a push/pull/legs routine and it works well. The reason i changed it was because i wanted to increase the frequency.

    This is what I do:

    Day 1: Shoulders
    Day 2: Quads
    Day 3: Chest/Tris
    Day 4: Back/Bis
    Day 5: Hams
    Day 6 & 7: Rest (weekend)

    I found that this routine gave my shoulders a day of rest before they got hit again secondarily with chest and back. Shoulders have been great and saw pretty good gains. Basically being hit twice a week. Hope this helps you.
