What does your routine look like?

I mostly stick to the normal chest/tri , back/bi split, Legs/abs...Recently I did a workout where I only focused on my triceps. Was wondering how some of your workout routines look like.

I'm bad.. I crush a whole bunch of upper body with free weights and very small degree of legs so I lose some physical aesthetics .I wish I could devote more to them but I'm just never been a leg guy. Other then squats here and there and presses once a week that's it.

I mix it up a lot of times but I've been doing a lot of super sets lately.

Chest/back
Bis/Tris
Shoulders
Legs

OR

Chest/Tris
Back/Bis
Shoulders
Legs

OR

Back/Shoulders
Back/Bis
Chest/Legs


Just kind of do abs/core and calves whenever. Shit always changes though, I wouldn't even really call it a routine. I work at a gym so I'm here all the time, so it's kind of hard to remember everything as it all blends together. Sometimes I get here wanting to do back and bis, and I'll finish up back and not feel like doing anything else.

Also I've been doing a lot of drop sets lately.

Nice...I just changed to doing 4 sets of 8 reps. I change the weights to make sure no matter what I get 8 reps in during the set. Felt my chest was going to explode.

Every six weeks I switch it up.

Started with full-body for six weeks to get back into shape a few months ago (each day focusing on a different exercise).

Then I took a rest week.

After that, did bro splits (i.e. dedicated days for chest, back, arms, legs, shoulders) for six weeks.

Rest week.

Now I'm doing mixed splits (chest/tris, back/bis, shoulders, legs -- doubling up on a different one every week). I've been doing these for more than six weeks at this point.

I always target abs a few times a week as a cool down.

Thanks for your input! Think I may try the bro routine.

For what it's worth, I've noticed more gains with the mixed-split routine (possibly because it allows you to double up on one of the body groups every week.

For example:

Monday: Shoulders
Tuesday: Legs
Wednesday: Chest/tris
Thursday: Back/bis
Friday: Shoulders

I rotate exercises every week (so I don't do shoulders every Monday and legs every Tuesday, etc.); I also don't double up on the same area every Friday. I sort of rotate (last week I double up on shoulders, the week before I doubled up on chest/tris, and this week I'm doubling up on arms -- both tris/bis as well as forearms).
