Welcome to the forum. Rule #1, never quit. Rule #2, not everything works for everyone.

I'm not sure I'd be pairing up big muscle groups like chest/back and quads.

Could you give us an idea of the weight you are pushing.

What are your goals, short and long term. Spell all that out and you'll get more constructive feed back.


#3

I think you have too much overlapping muscle groups. Bench works primarily chest but shoulders and tris get hit as well. Using a Monday, Tues, Thurs, Fri I would do something like this.

Monday:
Squat
Romainan deads
lunges

Tues:
Flat bench (barbell or dumbbell)
Rows (any variation)
close grip bench or dips
high pulls

Thurs:
Deadlift
pull thrus
Step-ups

Fri
Incline bench
pullups or pull downs
bicep exercise of choice
tricep exercise of choice
rotator cuff work.

Welcome. Have you been working out for only 7 months, or were you doing something before then? You don't sound too fat, what exactly are your goals - trim up, get stronger?
