    on A you shouldn't workout back and legs together. On B you shouldn't workour tri's the day before chest. How about....
    we move day 1 to day 5, and take day 4 off.

    B:
    day1----legs ,abbs
    day2----chest, sholders
    day4 ---- rest
    day4----back,cardio
    Day5----biceps and triceps, forarms
    day6----rest
    day7----rest

    Good suggestion Millertime.

    I couldn't pick A or B because I'd NEVER do back on the same day as legs. Those are my two toughest workouts when done seperately. I'd also never weight train 5 days in a row. I like the 2 on, 1 off schedule. And I schedule my day off after my two toughest workouts - legs and back.
