Weird Split?


#1

Hi everybody,

I'm new here, and I would like to have your opinions (beginners' and experts' alike) on this matter. I've tried to search the forums first, but I didn't know how to formulate my search...

I've been lifting for a little less than a year now (bodybuilding), and I want to try a new split. I like doing Full-body workouts, and I also like splits, which I feel help me work my muscles better. I hate training my legs, but I love squatting heavy. So I was thinking of splitting my upper body (Shoulders, Chest and Back { no direct arm work}) on three separate days, while doing one or two leg exercises per workout.

It would look something like this:

Monday: Back (One-arm rows, chin ups, inverted rows, Squats)
Wednesday: Chest (Bench, Flyes, Pullovers, Deadlifts)
Friday: Shoulders (Military press, lateral raises, dumbbell press, Squats)

This is just to give you an idea. I won't necessarily do the exercises in that particular order, nor will I inevitably use these exercises. Also, there is only one leg exercise per workout, but I could add another if I have enough energy left (I'm a bit of a pussy after a day at work {mechanic}... Excuses, excuses... I know!). I could even add a set of curls if I ever feel like it.

I hope I posted this on the right forum. (Also, if english mine bad, sorry english not native language of myself :wink: ).

Thank you!!

If you like full body WO maybe you can get from librairy a book by Chad Waterbury: Huge in a hurry
He suggest programs for BB with squats or deadlifts
When your WO are over i suggest for the next 8 WO try a new leg exercise it can be ultra light just with the goal of finding maybe 2 or 3 that you like. Chad has many suggestions like single leg exercises with pictures and descriptions.

You could also do searches here or youtube or google.
