Alternate the order of workout evey session.(some ppl tend to go all out and waste too much energy on legs and go half ass on chest & back) I always do dips and chins after back and chest.

(So basically I do legs first then next session I will do chest & back first) Abs and calves are no exception.(dont alway train them last)

Every so often I will switch up the chins and dip for curls and french press. Although I found my arms grow nicely with just chins and dips.

This is pretty basic but it works like a charm. EAT EAT EAT as well. For nutrition info click here.
