i usually end up working tri's twice a week. once indirectly on chest day, and then directly on a tri/bi day. because they get hit with so many sets and repetitions on chest day i usually try to focus on a couple of exercises for a few sets on arms day with a main focus on strength (GCBP, dips, skull crushers...)

I work them with shoulders and when I do chest, I try to do only the bottom 2/3 of the movement to take some of the strain off of the triceps.

Usually I have an arm day, but sometimes I'll hit tri's and back or just hit 'em when I feel they need to be worked.

I really only have bench day, squat day, and deadlift day. I will do assistance lifts afterwards though.

Sometimes I hit bi's with tri's then other times I hit triceps with back. Guess it all depends on how I am feeling that day.

i do back and tri's together. my tri's get worked hard on chest day, so i feel like i get cheated if i also try to work them with chest, cuz theyre already so blasted from my chest workout.

YouTube- Brandon Curry- Chest
when I trained at this guys gym in 2007 i saw him in the off season (he may have allowed more body fat then then he does now) and he looked like a mass montser

I checked other cause i work them by themselves a lot. I do the chest tri thing sometimes to though. Ive never done the bi tri thing though, seems people like it.

I actually do them the day I do legs. They are already a bit blasted on chest day (my arms are kind of long) so I hit them specifically after doing legs. Similar thing happens for biceps on Back day, so I do biceps specifically on Shoulder day.

chest bic,legs,off,shoulders tris,back
I did them with chest in the past, but i couldn't hit them as hard as i can now on shoulders day..

argh. no choice for chest/shoulder day? i'll pick chest then.
i agree with this. i do chest tris and shoulder on one day.

always been wondering what the correct day was on chest or back. i see alot of chest/bicep and back/tricep days in the magazines, but i do it opposite because of shoulder problems so it feels better to do my triceps on chest day and biceps on back day.

Indirect on chest day and I dedicate a day to just the triceps. It is an underdeveloped area for me so I put a lot of focus on them right now. 6 exercises 18-20 sets total.

I will normally workout triceps with chest day and sometimes on shoulders day, being they are undeveloped. I am thinking about switching the triceps to my back day.
BTW: I liked the neck presses in the video. I don't see a lot of these bodybuilders using it, pretty cool.

I have been doing Chest/Tris Back/Bis recently, ive hearing some different views though i guess i can see it from both sides if you work them indirectly on chest day and dedicate a day to them they will probally grow more but i usually do Chest and tris togethor because i feel not only the benching but dips all work tris and i might as well throw in a couple iso tri excersices at the end to work em even more ive seen great results in my tris recently so i cant complain.
But i'll make a point to try to switch it up a little and see what works.

Triceps get their own day. I blast them too hard on chest night and shoulder/trap night that I simply just need to allocate a day for tris and bi's. Works great.
