    50

    It's official I'm 50. I'm happy where I'm at fitness wise but need some fine tuning and there's always room for improvements. The first is to slow down on the beer intake, it's just time to get that under control. And starting a brand new split next week which will be:

    Day 1 Chest/Shoulders
    Day 2 Back/traps
    Day 3 off
    Day 4 Legs
    Day 5 arms

    John Meadows was talking about this split and looks really interesting. Personally I never liked the idea of just an arm day but never tried it before, so why not do something completely different.

    Happy Birthday.

    Same here on the beer. I've been doing pretty good since Halloween. My wife bought a 6 pack yesterday but not really interested. I'm one of those all or nothing guys though.

    Let us know how it goes. I'm not really a fan of just doing certain muscles one day a week either, that's why I do full body workouts three days a week. I like to hit the same parts with different exercises more throughout a week's period. There's more than one way to skin a cat I'm sure and like Ezra said, Mountaindog knows his stuff.

    Looks like a good split. Certainly worth the time to test it and see how it feels to you.

    Fullbody is good stuff. I did them when I first started working out then as I got more advanced and I started a split.

    You could test it.

    But you could also do upper/lower split. Or combine a large muscle group with an arm group.

    I.e.

    Day 1: Chest, tri's
    Day 2: Back, bi's
    Day 3: Shoulders, traps, (arms if ya want to emphasize that), abs
    Day 4: Legs
    Day 5: Off

    Repeat, and implement a rest day whenever you feel necessary.

    Let's goo!
