Thoughts on BB/Strength Splits

I am fairly well educated when it comes to strength training however i lack knowledge in regard to BB training/creating a routine. Some advice would be great.

I am planning on doing a 4 or maybe 8 week progression with the following strength training routine. This is not a really a power lifting split.


M - Heavy Squat/Dead
Quads
Hams
Glutes
Calves

T - Heavy Bench
Chest
Tri’s

W - Heavy Back/Shoulders/Biceps
Traps
Delts
Lats
Teres Major/Minor
Rhoms
etc.
etc.
Biceps

Th - Dynamic or Volume Squat/Dead
Quads
Hams
Glutes
Calves

F - Dynamic or Volume Bench
Chest
Tri’s

Sa - Dynamic or Volume Back/Shoulders/Biceps
Yatta
Yatta
Yatta

Su - Off, swim for recovery usually.

Cardio on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. Abs on Wednesday, Friday, and Light abs on Sunday.


After this I was planning on going into a 4 or maybe 8 week phase of BB training, I am not sure about a proper split, but this is something I came up with, let me know what you think.

M - Chest

T - Quads, Calves

W - Back, Posterior Deltoids

Th - Hams, Glutes, Lower Back/Erectors

F - Shoulders

Sa - Arms

Su - Off

Cardio every other day, Abs on non-cardio days, thoughts?

Your bb split looks good… Any idea of exercise selection and rep scheme, cuz that might change the way I’d set up the split
