    i dont like that your working out three days in a row then taking four off...

    if your working chest bis and tris which in turn work some shoulders with chest..

    then the next day do back which works your already sore bis and shoulders could be sore too...

    bad idea in my opinion.

    maybe chest tris bis --- then leg day --- then shoulders and back--- four days off?

    or every other day...

    i do some weird stuff like that too when it comes to lifting. Ive done my Max Effort Bench sunday morning then Max Effort Deads monday night... Then bench assistance wed and squat thurs.. It really gives u alot of rest time to go hard two days in a row. but eventually ur body will recognize and not be able to make gains. but its not bad to try out.
