    looks alright, but if you want a chiseled mid section then i would suggest doing abs more than once a week, maybe add it to the bicep and tricep days if you want to

    oh christ.

    Mondays - chest/triceps
    tuesdays - cardio
    wednesdays - back/biceps
    thursdays - cardio
    fridays - legs
    saturdays - shoulders + cardio
    sunday - off

    3 days of cardio, 4 days of lifting, 1 off day.

    and now you're doing the correct muscle groups together :slap:

    you can also put shoulders on the legs day, and do the cardio on saturday without the shoulders if you dont want to lift 4 days a week.

    the key is to not do 100 upon 100's on the day you work them...most poeple make that mistake, train yourself to do the excercise properly with a day rest. abs recover easier than other muscles. doing a 2 sets of 25 of each ab exercise properly keeps my abs strong and i can see some definition, and ive been doing it for about 3 weeks now


    EDIT: a day rest in between is necessary

    that sounds exactly like my routine except that I do legs and shoulders on the same day, and only do cardio for 30mins in the morning when I have PT (military). I take two days off. Combining those muscle groups together has really worked for me.
