I would say 6 days is waaay too much. But then I don't know what you are doing those 6 days, e.i., one day you could just be jogging for 20 mins. Could you put up the routine for the week, that way we can all see what you are thinking of doing.

Ive done 6 training days per weeks for years with good results. Sometimes if I feel that I havent recovered from my last workout I take an extra day off. My program is as follows:

Day 1: Chest
Day 2: Back
Day 3: Legs, Calves
Day 4: Shoulders
Day 5: Triceps
Day 6: Biceps
Day 7: OFF

This routine allows me to hit every muscle group with full power.

I was thinking of something like this:

Chest/ Shoulders
Legs/ Tris
Back/Bis
Off
Chest/Shoulders
Legs/Tris
Back/Bis

Or else:

Chest/ Shoulders
Legs/ Tris
Back/Bis
Chest/Shoulders
Legs/Tris
Back/Bis
Off

My last routine really concentrated on my legs. Now I am looking to improve my upper body.

You still need to include legs or all those results you got from your leg routine would dissapear. Also, Where is chest and back? Lastly, that's a horrible routine...

What do you squat, bench, deadlift?

Take a closer look at the routine, there is everything. I will still be doing legs just not as much as my last routine. Not only that it's only going to 4 weeks long. Also look closley at my sig, it has my stats.

In the future actually read what is said before you critisize.

I don't see the point in doing a 6 day workout. You need the rest just as much as you need the lifting days. I would do an upper/lower or push/pull 4 day split. Try looking at the DFHT. If you want to try it, by all means do so, but I think you'll get better results following a DFHT style. If anything I would do your three days and take a day off and do it over again.

Chest/ Shoulders
Legs/ Tris
Back/Bis
OFF
Chest/Shoulders
Legs/Tris
Back/Bis
Off

Sorry but I don't see why I would need a whole day for Bi's and tri's. I hit every muscle group with full power all the time without having a full day for half the arm.
