    Barbell squats, deadlifts, and overhead press. Do the 5x5 routine (two warm up sets followed by three heavy sets of 5 reps each) and do abdominal exercises right after. That's all you need for right now.

With compound movements (the kind you should be doing) it's not like you can totally seperate the muscles you think you should be resting. Quality rest is kind of important...that's where the beneficial ADAPTATIONS TO THE STRESS take place.

    And finally that stress thing I mentioned is not confined to the skeletal muscle. The systemic stress response wreaks havoc on everything....if not managed properly.

    I knew a bodybuilder who swore by Fitrex, and he had pretty good results. I can see where you're coming from with the segregation, but I found it pretty hard to argue with a guy who used to be skinny and after doing fitrex for a couple years is built like a tank.

    As for me, I do stuff from www.trainforstrength.com, so my experience with fitrex is limited to what this guy told me; maybe he's just genetically predisposed towards beastliness.
    sudo make me a sandwich!

    Keinharr- While, you can't isolate a muscle in particular with compound movements, you can supplement them by doing specific lifts to increase the area you're lagging in.

    This is the routine I have desided to do- I also may just combine both days and go through all the excersizes three times a week.
    ---upper body day---
    bench press
    dumbell rows
    military press
    bicep curl
    pull ups/chin ups
    varios ab workouts
    ---lower body---
    squat
    deadlifts
    calf thingy I forget what it's called

    I'm not sure though, I think it might be to much for me due to the amount of time I put in to MA training but I'll give it a try.
