    Tricep day? I don't think the Triceps need a whole day to themself. Like Bling said, you could easily just do some extensions after working the chest on chest day.

    Since a lot of chest exercises invole triceps anyway, you might want to just swap shoulders with triceps. Your chest routine should be more than good enough to warm up your tris, and the best time for cgbp and all tricep exercises is after a chest workout.

    Boy opinions vary. When I work my chest I work it hard and very heavy. My triceps are to tired to handle heavy weight like they can when I have an arm day to itself. Tough old man has nice big triceps and for me they came from working very heavy on cg bench presses. If I work chest and then go to triceps, my cg bench is about 75 % of what it is on an independent arm day. My 2 cents
