Shoulders, abs and calves? :s

Do basic split? Chest/tris, quads/calves, back/bis, hamstrings/abs/forearms, shoulders/traps.

Or summat like that

Do more exercises than that, i dont want to see 15 reps of things.

In your shoulder routine, where do you isolate the back deltoid.

Are you genuinely following a workout plan?

Not trying to be harsh, but just helping

Stick to 12 reps or less if you are looking to bulk.

and then 3 sets for everything apart from legs (unless pyramiding).

I'm confused by your weights.

You can side raise 16kg (quite a hefty weight for side raised), but then only db bench 20kg (quite a small weight).  Are you sure your form on side raises is good?  Are you swinging?

And the bar is 20kg.

And your split seems a bit strange, go with something like Tango Oscar suggested.

Good luck with your progressions.

Thanks for the help.

I guess i kinda 'explode' when doing side raises, then slowly lower my arms, i'm not sure if i'm doing it right or not :s

My split atm is Legs, Chest & Triceps, rest, Back & Biceps, Shoulders, Abs & Calves, Legs, rest. (Focusing more on the legs because i race Cycle Speedway). So would i be better with something like Tom suggested (Chest/tris, quads/calves, back/bis, hamstrings/abs/forearms, shoulders/traps)?

I'm semi following this - http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/kris-gethin-12-week-daily-trainer-week-1.html

Should i just stick to a basic routine as you mentioned?

What's wrong with 15 reps? :s

Been training for about a month now so yea there's a lot i still have to learn, thanks for the feedback.

Haha try his 12 week programme for sure mate, but hes on roids, and if you look at his transformation, hes cut up not got bigger.

Look up on youtube how to do lateral raises cause technique is key for them, i only do 30lb dumbells with them cause i hold at top for a second and really squeeze

Decent considering you have just started.

A couple of things -

Why drop from 12 reps to 6 reps on your third set of bench press?

If you can get out 18*10 on incline bench, it would probably be worth going to 20*8 as a fourth set.

And if you are trying to bulk, I wouldn't be going on 30 mile bike rides lol.  Do 1 mile sprints and stuff like that if you feel like doing cardio.
