Easier to fit into a busy schedule, that is.

As an aside, I'm in good shape right now, to the point where I feel like I can perform most workouts at a reasonable level of intensity or resistance.

1) Abs and legs
2) Upper body
Abs and legs days consist of 4 leg exercises circuited into 4 ab exercises, and they're paired with each other. So, I'll do one circuit that consists of 1 ab and 1 leg, then move onto the next pair.
Upper body consists of 3 exercises each of chest, back, and shoulders, grouped similarly to the abs and legs, and circuits. So, the first circuit is one chest, one back, and one shoulders, then move onto the next circuit.
Lastly, each time I do an exercise (or a circuit), I do 3 sets of that exercise, 10 reps per set, and depending on the exercise, I might increase the weight every set.
So, here's an example:
The first circuit of upper body will consist of chest press, pull-ups, and lateral/front dumbell raises. I'll start with the chest press and rotate through the entire circuit 3 times. When I'm done, I'll move onto the next circuit.
