    Help developing a 3-day split

    After a lot of consideration, I've come up with this 3-day split (a 4-day split was just too spread out for me). Let me know what you think, all comments appreciated.

    Day 1: chest/triceps
    Day 2: legs/biceps
    Day 3: off
    Day 4: back/shoulders
    Day 5: off
    Day 6: start over again

    The only thing i'm wonderin is, do i have enough rest between my back/shoulders day and my chest/triceps day, since shoulders, chest and triceps overlap some.

    If anyone has any better suggestions for a 3-day split, I'm all ears.

    I don't see the point in having a rest day until you have worked out all muscle groups.

    Day 1: Chest/Abs
    Day 2: Arms/Shoulders
    Day 3: Legs/Back/Abs
    Day 4: Rest
    Day 5: Start Over

    96 hours of rest for each muscle group before hitting it directly again is plenty for a young person imho.

    You may or may not already be familiar with these routines. They work and are a 3 day split. Most productive routine I have ever done.
