Okay. Try variations of push-ups. Weighted, elevated, raised feet, one arm (this for max mass) etc. Dips also works the chest though I wouldn't depend on it for mass gain.

Flat & incline benches are going to give you more visual results quicker than anything else regarding your chest. Throw in some flyes (cable, dumbell incline, or whatever you're most comfortable using), and go from there.

If you want, go light with the flyes & superset them with sets of push-ups (again, it doesn't matter if they're elevated or not). You'll feel it when you're doing it right.

Needs more compounds.

One good & easy workout that should be done once a day, which is really effective is this:
20 Crunches
20 Leg Crunches
15 Crunches
15 Leg Crunches
10 Crunches
10 Leg Crunches
5 Crunches
5 Leg Crunches

it's been really great, I've been wanting abs and I've been getting results. It depends in what your current shape is, if your big and not fit, you might want to do this more then once a day, and results may take longer. If you're already extremely fit and just want to keep the abs or make them stronger or whatever, add more to it, like counting down from 30 or whatever you prefer.

Looks good - much better than others who post in here. A few suggestions for you:

-Start day 4 off with back squats, sets of 5.

-Limit the accessory exercises. No need for that many triceps or biceps oriented motions. Do 1 extra exercise in addition to your back + chest day. They'll be hit hard indirectly from pull ups, rows, and presses.

-Emphasize progressing linearly, from workout to workout or week to week.

-Take out some of the leg day exercises, too many. Focus hard on the squats to start it off. If your whole goal is aesthetics, add leg press or lunges along with 1 hamstring exercise and then calves. No need for squats, 2 quad dominant exercises, 2 hamstring exercises, calves, and abs. Bit excessive.

I like the routine. There's plenty of compounds in there. I would ignore that suggestion from i$e. Normally offers useful advice, I don't see how this advice applies.

I hate having to point it out, but I was being sarcastic.

To give a helpful reply; lose all those pointless isolation exercises. For a beginner I wouldn't actually do a four day split. I'd do a three day full body compound program, smashing up Deads, Squats, Bench, Pullups, Dips & Military.

You're just starting out so strengthening your core should be your main goal.

Sincerest of apologies. I wasn't expecting sarcasm and certainly did not detect it. Sound advice there. I always tell people to stick with Starting Strength or something to the like.

cool thread. I'm overweight, but only a lil chubby not obese. I usually do sit-ups push-ups and run atleast one mile every week day, ride my bike, and play basketball. That's how i lose weight and it's effective. I was 220, now im like 196
