    Mets' Routine

    Was just curious if this was a sufficient workout, and if I should do something differently or add something. I've stuck to insanity and other body weight workouts because I never really knew what would be a good workout sets using weights. After some lurking here and experimentation on my own, I've gotten into somewhat of a routine the past 3 weeks. I have 3 different workout days: upper body, legs, and back. Throwing abs in when I feel like they've recovered from the previous ab day. The only workouts I've really seen are splitting up upperbody/back between push and pull days. I'm 5'8 and weigh 150.
    Everything is a selectorized machine unless stated otherwise. I do the max weight I can for 3 sets of 10 reps.

    Upper Body (A)
    Chest Press
    Flys
    Lat Raise
    Overhead Press
    Biceps Curl (DB/machine/cable depending on day)
    Tricep extension (cable)

    Legs (B)
    Abduction
    Adduction
    Calf Raises
    Leg Press
    Leg Curl
    Leg Extension
    Ab Ripper X (tends to fall on leg days)

    Back (C)
    Rows
    Lat Pulldown
    Rear Delt flys
    Hyperextension
    Ab push
    Hip Twist/Torso Rotation
    Wrist curls (DBs)

    My week looks like this, and I follow the pattern into the following week:
    A, B, off, C, off, A, B.
    I play frisbee 2 days a week which is near constant running and suffices as cardio. I like switching up ab workouts between heavy sets and bodyweight, I feel like it's more efficient but not sure if there's any truth to that. Since I won't have access to the gym at my college over winter break, I'm going to do 5 weeks of insanity for the time at home, and just jump back into this when I get back.

    I don't really know much when it comes to the workouts.. but I've seen/feel results already, especially in my abs, but that might be from getting into a routine again.

    What should I add without switching the areas I work on?
    Dumbbell exercises?

    i think your leg workut is subpar. also, i might switch to a push, pull, leg routine.

    where
    day 1
    push exc. (mostly chest, tric, should. all push movements)
    day 2 leg
    day 3 pull ( back, bi's, traps. )
    rest.

    IMO, much more effective.

    This seems like something I could get into. I've also wanted to add squats to my workouts and plan on it in January. I always feel like my legs got a good workout even without them though, I always feel it the next day, especially if I have frisbee the day after and try to run through it.

    Limitations are for people that have them, and excuses are for people that need them.
