View Full Version : Is it possible to make a Mon/Wed/Fri routine into a Tue/Wed/Fri?

What do you guys think... I have always gone the Mon/Wed/Fri way with my split because until now I could always afford it. However this semester it looks like I won't be able to work out on Mondays.

My split goes like this: Chest/Bi, Shoulders/Legs/Abs, and Back/Tri.

If I move my Chest/Bi workout from Monday to Tuesday, I'm concerned my front delts will take too much of a beating from working hard two consecutive days.

Any ideas on how to handle this unexpected change?

What's wrong with working out on weekends? Your body doesn't know what day of the week it is

The gym I go to (university's gym) is closed on Sundays and Saturday afternoons... and no, I'm not willing to wake up early every Saturday morning...

Why not just change your routine to Chest/Shoulders, Bi/Legs/Abs, and Back/Tri ?

Cut out the direct shoulder work and do it like this:

Tues-Chest/Bi
Wed-Legs/Abs
Fri-Back/Tri

Maybe do a few sets for delts on Tues or Fri if you feel the need.

id cut the arm work out over the delt work. Or technically you could cut both i suppose

I'd say do this-

Tues- Chest/Bi
Wed- Legs/Abs
Fri- Back/Shoulder/Tri

It might work better with compound exercises to switch to Tues: Back/bis, Wed: legs/abs, and Fri: Chest/tris/shoulders. Exercises like pulldowns, pullups, and rows use lats and biceps, then after the back exercises your biceps would already be warmed up and you could move straight to curls, and pushups/presses, etc work chest and triceps together so after the chest work you could do your tricep routine. That's how I do my workouts.
