    How Does This Split Look?

    Day One: Chest/Triceps
    Day Two: Rest
    Day Three: Back/Biceps
    Day Four: Rest
    Day Five: Shoulders
    Day Six: Legs

    Basically a push/pull/legs routine, but I want to see if anyone out there thinks there is a better way of organizing this split. Please back any suggestions up with some sort of reasoning (i.e. don't post your personal preference). Thanks.

    Any reason why? That is a lot of work for day one.

    It does seem like a lot of work, but when working out your chest you are working your delts and triceps at the same time. This way you won't be doing as much direct shoulder/tricep exercises.

    Re: How Does This Split Look?

    It depends on the amount of volume you are training with.

    For example I train chest,shoulders and tri's together but I do a total of 6 sets for this whole workout day.. If you are doing moderate to highish volume it would be too much work yes..

    I agree with yates it looks good I would not change it.. I have too worked with a split exactly the same as this with good results.. I am assuming day 7 is a rest day right? If so it looks like a good split to me. If I was to return to a 4 day split again I would do this one too.
