    Hey @zain1221.. your routine didn't post very well but I think I can figure most of it out. It's missing quite a bit and probably has too much of some things.

     

    For example.. you have a bicep exercise but no tricep exercise. You train chest and shoulders twice but back and legs once. I mean.. you squat twice which is good but that's only 9 sets total in the week for legs.

     

    It's like you are trying to do full body workouts 3 times a week, which is fine, but you haven't quite got everything you need or much variation.

     

    Have you thought about trying something like my Push/Pull/Legs program instead for your 3 days a week of training? muscularstrength.com/Push-Pull-Legs
