    it's not so much 'bad' as different.

    and no, I don't bother giving advices so much, the effort:'reward' is low.

    others will chime in x

    If possible you should try fit in wide grip chin ups for back and lats.

    What sort of rows?. You should try bent over rows for back i find them very rewarding.

    Also for shoulders you should try upright rows and they hit your traps as an added bonus

    One more thing try stiff legged deadllifts on leg day, they target your hamstrings and also hit your glutes and lower back

    This may sound a little crazy but here goes...

    From the sound of it you have very little training experience, why not get your head in some decent books and in the meantime perform something which is tried and tested? I will guarantee that you will get better results.

    One of the exercises with a naturally high risk of injury even if you perform them with good form - best avoided.

    If you're doing pullups, chinups, bent over rows, dumbbell rows, etc you don't need to be upright rowing.

    Probobly better than most of the crap that gets posted on here lol, but like Choc said, if you jump onto a tried and tested routine you'll get better results. Google starting strength, stronglifts, westside for skinny *******s etc.

    Do this instead:

    of course, if you're a beginner, just do Starting Strength.

    Worth doing even if only for the traps.

    OP, your username is an anagram of "Vulva maulr". Try fitting an 'e' in there somewhere.

    Anyway, I'm not a big fan of bodypart splits. I'm even less of a fan when biceps are listed as one of the bodyparts.

    Deadlift should be first.

    No need for incline bench.

    Leg and bicep day sounds very faggy - lunges, calf raises, bicep curls :lolwut:?

    why does everyone think once a week is enough?
    obviously depends how fast you want to improve, but tbh you could just spend a bit more time and do mon wed and fri excersizes on all 3 days...

    Then again if you injure your rotor cuffs (which isn't uncommon) you're going to be out of action for quite a while.

    Like I said, if you're deadlifting, chinning, rowing and doing shrugs your traps are going to be getting more than enough work.

    Its perfectly fine, its your diet which really counts. You could do WS4SB or Starting Strength but thats pretty much down to preference.
