Is Chest, Shoulders, and Triceps too much?

  1. Is Chest, Shoulders, and Triceps too much?


    Is Chest, Shoulders, and Triceps too much in one day?


  2. i dont think soo that what i train all together alll the time think about it when u bench or shoulder press ur using all 3 anyway

  3. Not at all. I currently hit those 3 groups together on the same day, hit each muscle group once a week, and am in the gym 4 times a week. I have been liking the routine as well.

  4. it's not too much. most train legs in one day too

  5. There's never any 1 absolute way to do things. Learn your body, what works and what doesn't. If it's too much for you, stop. If it's a good split for you and you see progress.. keep doing it.

    The pros are the pros because they know their bodies. They realize there is no golden rule for everyone. Find out what you need to do for YOU, and you'll succeed.

  6. Training chest, shoulders, and tris is pretty common. The excersizes for these are "push" or "press" exercisizes. Many people do push/pull splits. I personally prefer upper body/lower body splits.

  7. Thank you all for the advice.
    I really appreciate it.
    It's been working good for me, so I'll stick with it.

    Thank you all.

  8. I do Cheat, shoulders, triceps one day.

    Legs, Calves the next.

    Back, biceps, and forearms another.
    Sound legit?

  9. Quick snapshot of my current routine looks like this:

    Day 1: Chest, Shoulders, Triceps
    Day 2: Back, Biceps (Run)
    Day 3: Off (Run)
    Day 4: Quads/Glutes, Hamstrings
    Day 5: Traps, Forearms, Calves
    Day 6: Off (Run)
    Day 7: Off

  10. Just make sure your volume and frequency are in check. It's very, very easy to overdo it. Less is more, just keep it intense.

    It's hard to find that fine-line. I still struggle with it.

    Any tips on finding this happy medium?

    ...unless of course when you train your shoulders it compromises the effort you give your chest and then training your chest compromises the effort you give your triceps....

    Push/Pull - Chest/Back
    Push/Pull - Arms
    Push/Pull - Shoulders
    Push/Pull - Legs

    I promise you your chest workout is heavier and more intense if you DON'T train it after shoulders.
    I promise you your tricep workout is heavier and more intense if you DON'T train it after chest.

    Too many consecutive pushes diminishes the push...
    We live in a time where our planet suffers from two epidemics simultaneously - starvation and obesity.

    Look at all these little kids taking care of the music biz, don't their business take good care of me.

    I have the fire, I have the force, I have the power to make my evil take it's course.

  14. you have to find the right balance i trained them all together for about 8 weeks

    Mondays-
    max effort on bench variation
    Rep work on whatever lift i maxed on
    Shoulder Press heres where it gets tricky if i did incline max or something that stressed the shoulders alot a barbell lift was outta the question id do dumbell or machine shoulder press..
    Tricep movement- obviously since everything else was heavy this day id do pulldowns or less stressful tricep movement such as pulldowns..
    ----
    for the second day if u bench heavy u obviously go lite this day
    if u did shoulder press with a barbell last week do higher rep dumbells ones this day, if u did dbs the 1st day today barbell is an option
    you can also do a heavier tricep movement such as board press pin press db extentions sskull crushers pull overs etc..

    i did all this and back work.. ur gonna have to eat ALOT tho no slacking in the kitchen

  15. It is if you bomb and blitz those bodyparts with an ungodly amount of sets and reps in the same session, but if you keep it simple with just a few presses and isolations, you'll be good to go.

  16. When do you say enough is enough, for each body part?
