    Is my split optimal enough for my goals?

    Hi, I was just wondering if my split will be optimal for achievement of my goals.

    I have been training for almost a year now and I am coming back from an injury and ready to go hard in the gym. I am 18 btw so I am fully capable of working out 5-6x a week.
    My goal is to bulk to my target weight 175 (currently 165) and also grow certain spots of my body that need to be enhanced (arms)

    Here is my split:
    Monday - Chest and Triceps
    Tuesday - Legs
    Wednesday - Back and Biceps
    Thursday - Shoulders and Traps
    Friday - Biceps and Triceps
    Saturday/Sunday - Rest

    honestly just wondering if this is gonna be the best split that will make me the most gains, considering my goals (Hypertrophy/ putting on muscle especially in my arms).

    Thanks

    The split is irrelevant without program details.

    Don't try to invent your own workout. Just follow something like the Fierce 5 or All Pro. I've been doing it for 3 years. Avatar pic is a year old.

    If you are natural it doesn't matter. Time + consistency + progression = results

    Watch your diet, that is what will give you the gains.

    At your age and experience, there’s 0 reason to lack frequency in training.

    You should be hitting the big compound movements every three or four days. So twice a week or twice in 8 days.

    Mon- upper
    Tuesday- lower
    Wed- rest
    Thursday upper
    Friday lower
    Sat rest
    Sun rest

    Is better.

    Or…

    Upper
    Rest
    Lower
    Rest
    Upper
    Rest
    Lower
    Rest

    Better still.


    If you absolutely must split your body and be a slave to the gym, consider a 3 on, 1 off. Make sure you train all the big compounds over those three days.
    "A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. "By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another."
