Love your video clips to show the exercises. I agree, those exercises are great. I like to do a 3 day split. (Chest/Back,) (legs,) (Bicep, tricep,shoulders.)

That's a great way to divide up the routine and it allows time for the muscles to recouperate.

Time is very important in that. If you don't follow the time you will not get the high value from it.
