A little of each: workout split

I was asked on facebook to blog about my workout split, which is a great idea! I prefer doing one muscle group a day (except bis/tris) because I find that when I try to squeeze two in, I run out of time. Lately I have been doing cardio with every workout so I'm usually in the gym from 60-75 minutes. My ideal split is:

Monday: Legs
Tuesday: Off
Wednesday: Back
Thursday: Abs
Friday: Bi's/Tri's
Sat: Shoulders
Sun: Abs

As of this week I've decided to make the day after leg day my off day because I'm always pretty tired and low on energy. I will also throw abs in once more, just depending on when I have time. I've also switched from eating a "full" meal before the gym to just a 1/2 protein shake and 1/2 apple, then I do my meal right after the gym. I still have plenty of energy without that full feeling-- I just make sure to drink my BCAA's! Over the past 7 weeks or so, I've seen the most change in my arms, still hoping to see those abs by vacation next Saturday... but we'll see, seems like that last bit of fat will never go away!
