Need Help Refining My Workout Routine
Hello everyone. I started lifting early last summer and it has now been almost one year since i started lifting and working out on a regular schedual. I used to split my workout up with 2 different routines that i would do every other day but i have recently moved into the phase of only working out each individual muscle group one time a week. My normal routine is as follows:

Day 1: Biceps- 5 different exercises that target biceps each excercise i lift as much wieght as possible for 10 complete non- cheating reps. I do 4 sets of each excercise totaling 20 total sets that target the biceps.

Day 2: Back- 6 different excercises, 3 that target upper back, 3 target lower. 4 sets each exercise and 10 reps per set.

Day 3: Chest- 6 different exercises that target chest, 4 sets each exercise and 10 reps per set.

Day 4: Triceps- 5 different exercises targeting triceps, 4 sets each exercise and 10 reps per set.

Day 5: shoulders- 5 different excercises that target shoulders, 4 sets each exercise and 10 reps per set.

Day 6: REST


******I also do one exercise targeting my abs daily, 5 sets each exercise and 15 reps per set along with 30 min on the eliptical machine for cardio. I rest abs and cardio on the sixth day which i take off. I am 5 11 and weigh 162, I am looking to increase muscle mass mainly but i need to lose a few pounds around my abs so i can actually see them. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated and thank you to anyone that takes the time to read my shitty writing.

If your stopping at 10 reps you need to increase the weight. Also where are the legs?

Yea i started this workout to get bigger upper body for baseball but am thinking about adding legs on the day off and then moving my rest day after the legs. I was wandering if i should add weight after each set or keep the same weight on for each set which i try to make it so after 10 reps i cant physically do anymore.
