I just recently changed up my 4 day split routine with advice from gino . I just realized the way I have it set up is I would do tri's on friday and chest on saturday. I just started incorperating CGbench for tri's on my friday routine, would this harm the chest workout at all for saturday ?
Personally I wouldn't do triceps the day before chest.
mon - legs (in my gym, most people dont do legs on monday)
tues - biceps, triceps, abs
wed - shoulder, traps
thurs - back
fri - chest
I am doing max-ot and just completed the 2nd week.
Do you feel your chest day is being effected negatively by working out your triceps the day prior? If so, why don't you switch it around so you don't have to do triceps the day before chest?
Here's what my routine would look like now.
Monday - Chest,Biceps
Tuesday - Quads,hams,abs
Wednesday - Back,Calves
Thursday - OFF
Friday - Shoulders,Traps,Tris,abs
Saturday - Chest,Biceps
Sunday - OFF
Then Quads would go Monday, Back Tuesday and so on.
Therefore the second week I'd have tris on Wednesday and Chest Friday with full day of rest in between.
This way here I was hitting chest 4 days apart the first week and 5 days apart the second. What if I were to replace tris with bis and the 2 week schedule with be as follows
Monday - chest,tris
Tuesday - quads,hams,abs
Wednesday - back,calves
Friday - shoulders,traps,bis,abs
Saturday - chest,tris
Monday - quads,hams,abs
Tuesday - back,calves
Wednseday - shoulders,traps,bis,abs
Friday - chest,tris
Saturday - quads,hams,abs
Then week 3 would be "back&calves" starting the Monday and so on.
Would this be any good ?

Why isn't it any good ?
I think you just need to hit each muscle once a week. Get rid of that 5th day and make it 4 workout days, 3 off days. That makes it pretty simple, and pretty simple is pretty good.
Since you seem to want to take Thursdays and Sundays off...
Make Chest/Triceps every Monday.
Legs every Tuesday.
Back/Biceps every Wednesday.
Thursday is off.
Shoulders/Traps every Friday.
Saturday and Sunday off.
Throw abs in once or twice a week wherever you want.
Rinse and repeat.

Obsessed is a word the lazy use to describe the dedicated.
Whether you think you can, or you think you can't, you're right.
