Too much chest, no leg curls or stiff leg deads (I can't remember what Romanian DLs are). I like 8 to 9 sets for quads. Works for me I can squat 405 nice and deep for 8 reps. Not bragging just saying I've made some good improvements on my legs. Friday looks good. Mix up your exercises.
Ultimately, you need to change your routine every so often. That will keep your muscles guessing and a growing. Right now it depends where your at. I don't know how advanced you are. You might make some good progress with your current leg w/o. Everyone is different so your going to have to find out threw experience. Definitely too much chest though and back too.
im joking about the mr. o thing. im 17 and kinda new at bodybuilding-so i guess its still possible. i have decent strength for a noob. i can squat and dead over 300 and bench over 200 at 160 pounds: no where near where i want but im on the right path. i got this routine from a guy on bodybuilding.com forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=1896861
if this isnt a good 4 day split. what is? btw i actually like the leg day because i can do cardio without worrying about leg recovery
how the fuck is that too much chest? he does 4 chest exercises spread out through his training, thats perfectly fine.
And romanian deadlifts are almost the exact fucking same as stiff legged deadlifts, and are mentioned a lot on this site.
I also have to say that he has enough leg volume FOR NOW aswell. Squats and RDL's kick the shit out of you if you work them hard enough, but eventually you can get used to them and THEN increase the volume.
OP, your routine is fine, Legs, Chest/Back, Arms & some shoulder, back chest at the end to finish it up, nothing wrong with that, CT recommends programs like that with supersets quite often.
One thing I would say though, is try to do what feels right for YOU, i personally can't get on with supersets, so i dont use them, if they work for you thats great though.
Obviously if you are still making this statement, you have never done both of them with signifigant weights, because they are not "Almost the exact fucking same". There are a few articles on here that talk about this exact subject.
They are almost the exact same thing. Why would someone (fighting tiger and BFBullpup) argue that they are different or that one is better than the other? That's like saying Olympic back squats are better than all other squat variations or should be used instead of other squat variations. Use them all!!!!
This kid is putting together a "bodybuilding" type of routine. His exercise selection is perfect for his goals. He has compound lifts and isolation exercises. You need both.
Stop sweating the small stuff and start training people!!
Stiff-legged DL as I know it mostly has to do with keeping the bar further away from the body during the movement -- putting more emphasis on the lower back. With RDLs, the bar is kept as close to the body as possible.
is it okay that i have a day entirely devoted to smaller body parts (friday)? i mean i could do those at the end of my 2 upper body workouts, but my energy levels are low after doing 4 compund movements. so, recovery wise, do you think its okay that i do back width one day, bicep isolation another day, and then back thickness another day--this wont overtrain my biceps will it? samthing for triceps.
i have horizontal pushing one day, tri isolation, then vertical pushing another. i guess this is fine because the tris and bis recover quicker than bigger parts, right?
