Body Building | Exercise schedule

I workout six days a week but I want to condense my workout to five. I still want to continue working each body part twice a week. I need help coming up with a schedule. Right now my schedule is:Mon/Thurs-back,biceps,and forearms. Tues/Fri-Chest&Triceps. Wed/Sat legs/abs/shoulders.
Please help.

the guest is right on the money.
Twice a week, wow. Are you hitting them with real intensity? Big muscles should only be trained once a week, and hard!, if it is muscle gain that you want. Deb sounds like a girl name, so i guess you want conditioning or toning. If this is the case, you can do 2x every 10 days.

In my opinion i think you should only be working out your back,chest and legs once a week. For ex. my routine is Mon: bi and leg Tuesday: Chest, tri's Wednesday: Cardio Thursday: bi and back Friday: delts and tri's Sat/Sun rest or cardio. I think its pretty hard to work out all your body parts 2x's a week b/c theres just to much to do at once and youll spend a hella time in the gym and you might wont have enough energy to complete your work out. Also your body might wont have recovered from the previous workout. ***Member more doesnt mean better/bigger.***
