shoulder and chest

  1. shoulder and chest


    i created a lifting template but i was wondering if its a practical idea if one can split chest/shoulders on different days.. by shoulder i mean basically upper back as well.. including thoracic spine ROM

    i was thinking having light bench or DB presses MWF and rotator/shoulder work tuesday and thursday? or is just common sense to have on same days?

    You can do your Shoulders and Chest on different days, no worries. I've personally never worked them on the same day in any split I have done unless that session is a FULL-BODY session.

    Not sure why you would be working those two body-parts 2-3 times a week though, and wouldn't recommend JUST doing those body-parts - UNLESS of course, you're doing a split that includes ALL body-parts. Five days a week lifting is not necessary either.

  3. What does your routine look like? Are you doing some variation of bench press 3 days a week?
