gym 2x a day?
What is your opinion on lifting 2x a day?
Here is my split, specialized to bring my arms up to match my torso...
I was planning on doing tri's in the morning on mondays and bi's 5-6 hours later. This way I can go all out on each set. I dont see any problem there. However, since delts are hit with chest, I'm not sure about doing chest in the AM and delts later that day.

You have other delt workouts that won't hit them at the same angle. Twice a day is fine as long as your calorie intake is good to cover it. I started burning calories like a stove when I did this.

Hitting delts in the same day as chest has worked very well for me. To do both in the same session takes way too long to be effective and it is difficult to spread them out across a split and allow for the most recovery.
By hitting them all out in the same day, you will allow 6 full days of recovery and there will be no compromise on the volume used on each muscle.
This really works well for Quads / Hams also.

For chest I usually do 16-18 sets. Incline press (bench, db, or smith), Flat press (bench, db, or smith), Incline fly, crossover or fly machine, pullover.
Delts is usually about 15 sets. 4 sets of press (db or smith) and then a mix of supersets, drops, etc for side and rear delts.
