My split is like this... monday - chest/shoulders, tuesday back/abs, thursday legs/calves, friday -arms/abs. Every once and a while i have to switch up the days, like this week again I have to do legs on wednesday and take thursday off and then lift on friday for arm/abs. Does this really have a big effect, lifting 3 days in a row. The 3rd day is legs, a body part that one gets hit on this day. If it was the arm day on wednesday with no rest I would assume this would be a bigger problem. Comments?
Don't worry about it.

I do a body part a day
I make sure back/bi seperated by a day as well as chest/tri/shoulders I really like this routine
IMO I don't think arms need their own day. Do back/bis one day then chest/tris on another day.
if your still seeing progress then don't worry about it. maybe try substituting mon- chest/tri's and fri- shoulders & abs? just a thought.
My shoulders are very prone to injury which is why I do them with chest days, and dont devote a whole day to them like others do. My question wasn't on my split, it was on weather training 3 days in a row like that, then rest then train on friday (only on certain weeks due to schedule conflicts) will be bad?
you'll be fine, i wouldn't worry about it

Hot in terms of both speed and... well new hotness- Stash
Pro bodybuilders usually lift twice a day.
alot of people have shoulder problems when lifting, just like knees.
That's actually why I don't like to do them both on the same day (although I'm stuck with it for a little while)- why not pair shoulders with lats, as a push-pull?Originally Posted by gator
My shoulders are also injury prone and are also a weak spot in terms of development so I try to isolate them in terms of the split for greater efficiency in working them and not overtraining them after they are exhausted from some other bodypart's compound movements: I do them on day 1, along with forearms. I follow with a leg day, and after that get back to the upper body with a chest/tri day followed by a back/bi day.

The reason why I do them with chest is that while they do get really worked that day, they have a whole week to recover. I used to a 3 day split that was chest/tri, back/bi, legs/shoulders. That really made them hurt and they never had enough time to recover. After this 12 week cycle (supposedly that is how long your supposed to keep the same work out) I will switch it up.
