not to bust up in here with advice, but you split looks subpar. i bet you would benefit greatly from a split that seperates body parts better and even specializes on chest if you want.

what do you mean?

monday-chest/tris
tuesday-back/bis
wednesday-legs
thursday or friday-shoulders/traps

this is probably the most common split
