Default Looking For a New Split or 2


I am hoping to get some ideas/suggestions on switching things up a bit.

My usual training split goes something like this:
Sun (day1): shoulders, bi's and tri's
Mon (day2): Hams, quads, glutes and calves
Tue (day3): chest and back
Wed (day4): REST or active rest
Thur(day5): shoulders, bi's and tri's
Fri (day6): Rest
Sat (day7): Rest or 45mins cardio
-Ab work is done daily working different parts ie)obliques,upper/lower, w/resistancew/o resistance.
-Cardio is being done 3-4xwk as well..on training days 30mins, on rest days 45mins.

If anyone has any other suggestions I would appreciate hearing them, keeping in mind that I am unable to get to the gym on Wednesdays and Fridays.
Just looking to keep thngs interesting, is all. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

I like a once a week split, so I do:

Mon- Chest/ Biceps
Wed- Back/Triceps
Fri- Legs
Sat- Shoulders/ Abs

I don't do cardio right now, but it could be fit in whenever.

You could shift this to start on Sunday and have Mon, Wed and Fri off. I find that working each body part once a week gives me great recovery time and I've been very hapy with my strength gains.

Hey, thanks...gonna give your split a try starting on Sunday. We'll see how that goes with me after a few weeks....sounds efficient enough and this way cardio can get done on the non training days.....I like it! [img]/forum/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

I have two favorite splits. Don't know if it'll work for you but this is what I typically do:

Mon - speed skating practice
Tue - chest & triceps
Wed - speed skating practice
Thu - back & biceps
Friday - legs, calves, abs
Saturday - shoulders
Sunday - speed skating practice

OR

Mon - practice
Tue - chest & shoulders
Wed - practice
Thu - back & abs
Fri - legs, calves
Sat - arms
Sun - practice
