Hopefully Putt will tune in and get going with this.

I have to point out tho, this is just a friendly motivation tool, don't overdo it and injure yourselfves!!!!!

Ok, so go...

I also do my deadlifts in the same manner, however, I keep my feet a little wider then what that guy is doing... in a confortable standing stance... maybe I should post a video to see if my form is poor or average? :)

Chest:
Barbell flat bench: warmup, 115x6, 135x6, 135x6, 115x6
Barbell incline bench: 95x6, 95x6, 95x6
Cable Flies

simple short chest work out, felt good though. i thought i would be struggling with the 135, but i managed to pump out some solid 6's.

I would recommend in the early weeks, lighten the load a bit and go for fast reps with slow eccentrics, in the higher rep range.

Day 2: Back

Deadlifts: warmup, 135x6, 185x6, 205x6, 205x4, 185x3 (really died on this last set, i didn't have much energy today, wasn't eating properly)
Lat pull down: 105x8, 120x6, 120x6, 105x6
Rows (machine): 95x6, 105x6, 105x6

today was a really short workout, i really just wanted to get in deadlifts, i went straight to gym after my class. tomorrows workout should be much better

same work out as last time.

Do you really want to continue with the same ole' workout, over and over?

day 1 chest
- barbell flat/incline/decline
- flies, cable rows
I recommend DROPPING the Flies and Cable rows, and adding some Rest/Pause (RP) work with Hammer Strength machines. Check out Putt Punjabi's Journal for ideas of the exercises you can incorporate for chest

day 2 back
- deadlifts
- chin ups
- lat pull down
- rows
This is fine, just make sure you warm up properly for deadlift .

day 3 shoulders triceps
- dumbbell shoulder press
- arnold presses
- close grip bench
- tricep cable extensions
Again, this is fine, keep the overall volume low, and drop stupirsets, oops i mean supersets

day 4 legs and abs
- squats
- leg press
- ab exercises
Alright, looks fine again

Where is:
- Trap work? Biceps Work? Calf work? Hamstring Work?

I should post a video to see if my form is poor or average? :)

YES, you can post videos new using the Youtube button, thanks for Hsingh for figuring out how to do it, and then me copying him! :lols:

wasn't eating properly

eat properly!

Not that my opinion is backed up by any research/qualifications, but I would say hamstrings require just as much attention as your quads do. Squats and deadlift use quads primarily, hamstrings are used more for balance. Something like a stiff leg dead lift will focus primarily on hamstrings, with some impact on lower back as well. Give it a shot, you might like it :)

Always remember the theory of reciprocals (made that phrase up :P)
If you work chest, you must do back
If you work biceps, you must work triceps
If you work abs, you must work lower back
Similarly, if you work quads, you must work hamstrings
