Dumbbell Workouts: Training Program #2

SPLIT ROUTINE

Part A:

Crunch Situps
Leg Raises
Squats
Lunges
Calf Raises
Arm Curls
Curls – Preacher Curls
Tricep Extensions
Tricep Kickbacks

Part B:

Bench Presses
Incline Bench Preses
Decline Bench Presses
Shoulder Presses
Stiff Legged Dead Lift
One Arm Rows
Shoulder Flyes
Front/Rear Shoulder Flyes (Front & Rear Delts)
Shoulder Shrugs

Notes: This is a 4-day per week routine. Part A is for days 1 & 4. Part B is for days 2 & 6. So 4-5 sets of each exercise including your warm-ups. Use heavier weights and lower reps (6-10) with longer rest (2 min.) for greater muscle size and strength. Do higher reps (12-18) and less rest (30 sec. – 1 min.) for more muscle endurance and cardio conditioning. It is a good idea to alternate back and forth to constantly challenge the muscles.

Doing Frankoman dumbbell split (with mods) considering this workout

Been doing the Frankoman workouts, over the last 2 years with some modifications, have good results. Looking to change or supplement, anyone have experience with this one? I do a lot of cardio on other days (swim 1x/wk - bike or xcski 2x/week -spin in winter 1x per week)
