    advice

    ey guys and girls.

    Iv been doing a 6 day split routine consisting of back/bi/ --------Shoulders---- Chest/ Tri repeat.

    Just been wondering if im putting too much strain on my shoulders as they are been used straight the next day in chest day and was wondering if anyone could tell me if this would be a better routine for me ?

    Arms/legs monday ----- Chest/tris/shoulders wednesday --- arms/legs friday then chest tris and shoulders Saturday. Would that make more sense as to not overload myself going 6 days and using my shoulders a bit too much.

    Sorry for noob question and sorry if its not allowed here.

    If there are only 2 generic bodypart choices to pick from rather than you getting on a proper noob program, the 2nd routine that has Legs in it is the better one.

    I would definitely include shoulders as those are almost always used in the lifts performed. You definitely want them in good condition and health. If you're combining muscle groups into each day for your scheduling, i've always been a fan of chest/back on mondays & thursdays, shoulders/legs on tuesdays & fridays, biceps/triceps on wednesdays & saturdays. This setup allows for supersetting(depending on the sequence and type of exercises used, of course) which cuts down workout times, hits all muscle groups twice weekly, and leaves a rest day on sunday for recovery.

    I can only imagine how bad these routines actually are. Look into all pros or f5 located in the stickies.

    So first you wanted to skip legs, now you want to skip back but all along the arms just get annihilated every week? Sound about right? Don't take this the wrong way but you have no business doing your own programming. Follow a routine from the stickies, there are several great beginner workouts and also include an intermediate template you can transition into after ~5-6months.

    A beginner trying to make up their own routine is like playing with fire. But in your case, you're playing with some chop sticks. Follow one of the stickies in this forum for a beginner routine, as others have suggested.
