There is nothing wrong with training them together. Most like to train them since they are antagonists and can actually increase your strength during your WO. The same applies for chest and back or any training split that is based on a push/pull method.

I train these on the same day and often superset a back to back bi/tri set

Dont anymore thats what I attribute most of my stretch marks from. But love the pump from it thou. Skin feels so tight like its gonna rip.

Sometimes I do them together, other times I dont. I think its good to change things up from time to time, and I think most would agree.

I always train them together but once in a while switch it up. I feel what I am doing now training them on the same days is working out fine for me

I usually do triceps with chest and biceps with back. Recently I switched to doing bis/tris together on their own day. I was able to push/pull a lot more weight by giving them their own day. I would suggest trying it out if you haven't already.

Oh yeah,Bi's/Tri's/Forearms......thats "arm" day
Just be sure you don't have chest next in line as your arms will already be taxed....
Day 1: Arms
Day 2: Shoulders/Traps
Day 3: Back
Day 4: Chest
Day 5: Legs
Rest / Rest
If you see the pattern your just keeping the "pump" moving right along.arms touch shoulders/shoulders touch back/back touches chest/chest touch legs(abs)/legs...And supersets on arm days are great since your hitting three groups,as someone else mentioned.
And throw abs in couple times a week,But everybody's right its what works for you,I like one body part ed....hit it & hit it hard,get in/out the gym quick as possible,then let it rest,it shouldn't be taking you 2 hrs to workout,an hour tops or your just not pushing fast/hard enough...you go to long and the cortisol kicks in and defeats your workout....Don't Overtrain..
Personally 1 body part ED,and I don't see that not working for anybody,its all these 3 days splits and stuff that some don't respond to,1 body part per day should be your bread and butter and then journey from there and see what works for you

not bad. mine goes more along the lines of this
day 1 chest/abs
day 2 Arms
day 3 lower/upper back and shoulders
day 4 legs
day 5 rest
and i repeat that pretty much

that's the only way I train arms. Both tri's/bi's together! The feeling I get - the pump - is insane!
