This is my first post and I have to say the best site I've found. I am a new lifter and started 8 months ago. After reading everthing I could find, buying a set of weights, good running shoes, and changing my eating habits, I have managed to lose 26 pounds. I was at about 201 and now weigh 175 at 5' 10"+
The beer belly is gone and I have some definition in my muscle. My wife started with me and she is looking great. I lift twice a week and jog 3 miles three to four days a week. Anyway, my question is how I can split my routine which so far has been a full body workout. I have concentrated mostly on the compounds. I do Deadlifts, Squats, Bench Press, Upright Barbell Rows, Lat Pulldowns (Cable), and seated military press. Sometimes (not often) I mix in preacher and hammer curls, incline and decline dumbell presses. I also do weighted cable crunches for the abs, I usually do these on jogging days. Anyway, I think I am at the point where I have gotten lean enough and want to put on some more muscle, but I would like to change the routine into a split. I am a little confused as to how to split them as I am afraid I will work the same muscles if I don't do the lifts on the right days. I would like to stay with the compounds and add some isolation lifts. But after doing my full body I am too pooped to do anything else. Sorry for the rambling, but any insight will be greatly appreciated by this new 52 year-old lifter.
