Default Need Help With My Split

I needed to change my routine so I started doing chest/tris and back/bis, I used to do chest/bis and back/tris. I know, for example, that I don't want to do a full bis workout on the same day as back so I'm wondering what would be a sufficient bi workout to follow my back routine without over-training them. The same thing with tris. My routine today consisted of Lat pulls (4 sets/12 reps)
Reverse lat pulls (" ")
Dumbbell rows (" ")
Chins (4 sets/ 10 reps)
One-arm cable curls (3s/12r)
Concentration curls (" ")
Was this too much of a bi workout? Should I be doing doing different exercises? I could use some help. Thanks in advance!

Throw away your split. Look for a real program, not one from the latest flex issue. Take a look at the "DFT 5x5" sticky at the top of this forum.

With 1-2 years experience, you don't need half of that volume.

Look into the hst thread for some ideas... Or as Scorcher said, the DFT 5x5 sticky at the top of the page.

Will you gain with a split?.. Sure (excluding diet/genetics from the equation). BUT, you should be more concerned with building a strength base vs. jumping on the hypertrophy-only bandwagon like most people do.

The easiest way to explain why is this:

Who has the greatest potential for overall mass in 3 years? The hypertrophy first guys who gained 15 lbs of mass benching a sorry 185 x 10 and plateau?.. Or the strength-first guys who gained 8 lbs of mass who bench 250 x 5, THEN turn their attention to the higher reps benching 225 x 10? BTW, the strength training a la those 5x5 programs develop some wicked thickness and muscular development!

0311 hit the nail on the head. You will get much better results in the long run training for strength first and then hypertrophy. Good luck. Rippetoe's is a good place to start......
