    I've hit a plateau with my current workout, looking to try something new. Now I'm doing push/pull/legs with Chest/delts/triceps day 1 and 4, Back and Biceps day 2 and 5 and legs day 3. I started doing adding drop sets and supersets in recently, but I think a total change where I focus on one muscle group or 2 smaller ones a day once a week would be more beneficial. What I'm thinking is:

    Day 1: Chest
    Day 2: Back
    Day 3: Legs
    Day 4: Arms
    Day 5: Shoulders
    Abs probably every other day and some light cardio after each session

    Any suggestions on a better split? Would like to stick with 5 days. Could go 6 but doesn't seem like it leaves much time for rest. Would rather not cut back a day or I get bored and lazy. Only been hitting the gym seriously for a little over a year now, still relatively new to this so any advise from you seasoned veterans would be great.

    A five split is good. I'd suggest legs day 1, back day 2 chest arms shoulders rotate a different day each week. May clean up diet and consider increasing calories.
