In this routine everything gets worked once a week, except biceps and triceps which get worked twice (once directly and once indirectly). This should work out well, since my arms always recover more quickly than my chest, shoulders and legs.

Also, some of you may notice that Monday is a push workout, while Tuesday is a pull workout. Then on Thursday and Friday I train opposing muscle groups.
