Well I've decided to change my routine which I'm really excited about as I have been doing my current one for quite some time. I would really appreciate other people's opinions.
I've been training with weight 5 times a week doing a three day split. My split has been Chest/Bi's; Shoulders/Legs; Back/Tri's; Repeat. I do no cardio and never train abs directly - instead focussing on free weights.
Reason for change:
My routine does seem to be working but I'm concerned about overtraining. I have just started reading muscle and development as well as taking note of people's routines on these boards and have noticed that most people generally recommend that you only weight train 3 - 4 times a week (unless working one muscle part each day). So I've decided to cut it down to 4.
Gain Lean muscle
Monday: Back / Bi's.
Tuesday: Legs / Shoulders.
Wednesday: 1/2 hr HIIT (ie stairmaster) / abs.
Thursday: Chest / Tri's
I've decided to introduce 1/2 hr cardio each week for the sake of my heart. As it is only 1/2 hr I don't believe it will be too detrimental to my gains. Tell me if you disagree.
I wan't to do legs twice a week because unlike most females I have difficulty gaining size in the leg / butt area. The exercises will generally not be the same for both days.
I'm going to continue eating the way I have been - 2500 calories - 98% clean - 40 carbs; 30 Protein; 30 Carbs.
So please - pick away - I don't mind.
