I have currently splitted my work-out on different kinds of exercise so that when I work-out a specific body muscle I have about 2-3 exercises which I repeat.

For example, for the deltoid muscles I have divised 4 programs:

(1)

backstroke
dumbbell shoulder press
single shoulder abduction

(2)

flies with weights
upright row

(3)

floating arms with weights
single shoulder extension

(4)

arm circleswith weights
deltoid lifts

What I would want to ask you is if it is good to train on these programs alternatively (1) - (2) - (3) - (4) or is it better to group the exercises, something like (1) - (1) - (1) - (1) and then (2) - (2) - (2) - (2) and then so on until I start again from (1) - (1) - (1) - (1).

What would be better for the muscle development, a diversified schedule or something more compact ?

Hi Eduard, wasn't around yesterday. IMHO, diversity is the way to go. The more, the better, with a few exeptions. If you are into contest preperation for a sport, then stick to your sport. If not, go general prep and the more diversity, the better. Just my 2 cents.
