    bad. your tri's should be so badly toasted that your bench will drop by 30-40 pounds. then you'll be working tri's with DOMS, and you'll hit overtraining pretty quick. IMO at least. give it a shot - i could be wrong.

    I agree with Suncloud.

    I used to train tri's the day after chest, and I was never pleased with the results. When I started putting more time between the working chest, then tri's, my tri's beefed up.

    I may be a weirdo, but nowadays I've been doing the following (as far as weight training):

    Day 1 Chest and Biceps
    Day 2 Legs and Shoulders
    Day 3 Triceps and Back

    Started doing this after another AM member recommended something similar... Doing this I don't feel like I overtrain anything however I'm not in the gym multiple times a day, just the one 45 mins to an hour session that I can manage.
