Not bad. However, I would do chest, then Bicep, then Tricep. Give your tri's a break. I have never understood why people work chest and tris on the same day.

They work chest and tris on the same day because any pushing movement you do is going to be chest and tris. Any pulling movement you do is going to be back and bis. At least for the most part.

So these body part splits that everyone loves to do are often actually a push-pull-legs split in disguise.

BTW, 8 exercises is still a fvck of a lot. lol

This is priceless. No I understand the reason why. I just have never gained any benefit from the chest / tri and back /bi kind of routines. Just sayin. Come to think of it, from a bodybuilding perspective I have seen anyone use this model unless "Cutting". In before I don't get out much. LOL!!!!!!!

I see a not very good routine.

1.
for the chest very few repetitions . Are you training for power? Using heavy weights?

just 2 exercises for triceps and biceps? Why both on the same day?

2.

Legs again very few exercises and repetitions.

Squats 3x 6-8 rep very very few, unless you are doing power training (but i would do more series).

Calves you just don't have it, 1 exercise? they don't grow do they?


You say you work hard, but not very much or else you will not be able to do the next one... well you are not working hard then.
You only know that you are working hard when you get to your limit, and you feel that you can't do anymore, and you still do one or two rep.

I will give you an example of my training.

Squats.

First i use light weights to worm up, get my knees pretty worm. But this exercise don't count.
after worm up i start the exercise.

the first when doing hyper, i usually do 15reps at limit, this means that i can do 15 reps but no more i reached the limit.
the 2nd i do to 12rep, increasing the weight, i will do 12 reps at limit again, i always put weight to make sure that i do 12reps, but i won't be able to make 13rep.
If i manage to do 13 or more rep, than i know i don't have weight enough and next time i will increase more.


Not sure if i make my self understand, but this will make you train at your limit.
