First of all, I'll say that working all your body parts every day is a BAD, BAD idea!! I know you are young and full of energy, but your muscles don't grow in the gym. They grow OUT of the gym!! You need at least 48 hours of rest before you hit the muscle group again.

How long are you in the gym each day? Geez! If you did three sets for each body part (bi's, tri's, shoulders, chest, forearms, back) that would be 18 sets a day! (And that's not even mentioning abs!)

There are a bunch of beginner routines on this site, be sure to check them out. Remember, Rome wasn't built in a day, so neither will your body.

And don't forget cardio! It's a very import piece of the puzzle. Not only will it help burn excess fat, it will help speed up the metoblism, and overall help with your lifting stamina (so I've found).

Once again, I can't say this enough--working everything, every day is a BAD, BAD idea.

i agree with bradG working out for that long has its disadvantages to it.. as far as the best brand of creatine im not to sure since im not a very experienced creatine user but i can give u one hint make sure u load with your creatine first before u start to take in like 5 grams a day, and maybe mix in some dextrose. if you want more info on creatine theres tons of threads here on it go to the search bar on the top and put in creatine im sure a huge list of threads will pop up that will answer any questions u have

even though your a beginner and could possibly do anything in the gym at this point and see gains, that my friend is just overkill. everyday upperbody workouts?? thats too much. as for not training legs, your reasoning of "buffen up quicker", by not training them your doing exactly the opposite. by training legs it releases testosterone as well as growth hormone, two hormones that stimulate muscle growth. dont skip out on leg training. now the latest split you have devised is not the best way going about doing things.

day 1-bi's and tri's
day 2-chest
day 3-shoulders
day 4-bi's and tri's

your training bi's and tri's then progressing to other bodyparts, the issue with this is those are your secondary assistors, there involved when you train chest,back,and shoulders. if you train them before you train these, your following workouts will suffer. (by the way, i didint see you have any scheduled training days for back, do not neglect your back) i'd suggest training 3 times a week, monday,wednesday,friday, rotating between upper and lower body training, or a push/pull routine... just because your starting out. cardio wouldnt hurt, but the amount would depend on your goals.

Try looking at the sticky at the top of the topic list on the different workout routines. Read through them. You're bound to find one that will fit your goals.

Just remember, muscles grow when you rest. Don't neglect the abs or legs. Eat right (lots of protein!). Get enough (but not too much) sleep.
