    One large muscle group and one small muscle group per day, followed by a rest day. Doesn't make much difference which ones you chose or in what order. Legs get their own day also.

    I switched from training opposing muscle groups, like bi/tri to this for the last couple of months:

    Day 1: Chest
    Day 2: Shoulders/Triceps
    Day 3: Back/Biceps
    Day 4: Legs

    And just keep repeating it with usaully one day off somewhere. This keeps me at 48-72 hrs rest between muscle groups. I always work largest muscle groups first, e.g. shoulders before triceps.

    I am not try to flame but you need at least a off day in there somewhere. maybe after your Chest workout have an off day. but everyhitng thing looks good

    I got this intermediate workout online and it works fine for me (I just need to add more core and squat assistance work in there!). It's a three-day split. I usually do it M, W, F. I later realized that it is based on the three powerlifting lifts - the squat, the benchpress and the deadlift. Most articles I've read say beginners should start with 3 total-body routines each week. However, I don't know why or how true that is.

    day 1 - Legs
    squat
    leg press
    stiff-legged deadlift
    (calf raises are also suggested for this day)
    rotator cuff rehab

    day off

    day 2 - Chest/Shoulders/Triceps
    bench press
    (overhead presses and dips are also suggested here - I don't do them)
    close-grip bench press
    lateral delt raises
    posterior delt raises (sometimes on back day)
    ab crunches
    rotator cuff rehab

    day off

    day 3 - back/biceps
    deadlift (every other week - alternate with good mornings)
    close-grip lat pulldown
    Yates rows
    bicep curls
    posterior delt raises (sometimes)
    back hyperextensions (unless I did good mornings)
    rotator cuff rehab

    I do the exact same thing. I mix up the upper body once every few months. But generally, that's what I do. No point in making it complicated...it aint rocket surgery.

    Right now I'm on a three day split. Very basic movements

    Day 1. Legs (squats, leg press, stiff deads, leg curls, calf raises)
    Day 2. Chest/Arms (bench, incline, hammer curls, reverse curls, skull crushers, press downs)
    Day 3. Rest
    Day 4. Back/shoulders (deads, Shrugs, rows, chins, overhead press, side laterals)
    Day 5. Rest
