Are you doing upside down squats or something? How else do you do legs on a pull day? (I know I know deadlifts... But shouldn't you do most of your leg stuff on a push day?)

It'll work alright.. What exactly are going to be doing?

I don't know, I just got this split off of a bodybuilding site and decided to give it a try. But figured I would get some opinions on it first.

Lots of people really like Push/Pull splits... Some people prefer Upper/Lower splits.. It really depends what works best for you. Figure out what exercises you're going to do.. Come back here for some input then give it a go! If it works great!... If not then try something new!

so technically there is no wrong split. Its all personal preference, correct?

Well... To some degree...

IE:

Monday: Arms
Tuesday: Chest
Wednesday: Arms
Thursday: Chest
Friday: Arms
Saturday: Chest
Sunday: Auxilary

Would be a TERRIBLE split. :p

As long as you have sufficient time to recuperate most any split should work (Provided it's not a stupid split like my previous example)

Not to keep posting splits, but between these two, what would you choose?

Mon-Chest/Tris
Tues-Off
Wed-Bis/Back
Thurs-Off
Fri-Shoulders/Legs
Sat&Sun-Off

Or

Day1-Chest/Tris
Day2-Off
Day3-Legs
Day4-Back/Bi
Day5-Off
Then start cycle again.

See my biggest thing is, not to overttrain, but not to take too much time off either.
