    Anyone do this kind of split?


    I rarely if ever see or hear of anyone using it. Just curious what the thoughts were. All exercises done as super sets. On an iPhone so I can't list all exercises individually but I'm sure you get the point using pretty basic weight lifting exercises.

    Monday- chest/bis

    Wednesday- back/tris

    Friday- legs/shoulders

    Each day closed out with abs.

    I prefer a split like this more then the more standard chest/tris , back/bis. To me it makes more sense to not hit an opposing muscle group during a split. Your already hiting the tris with chest and you get some bi work with back so your bis an tris are getting overworked. going this way instead I always feel I hit both groups the (chest/bi and back/tri) the hardest with the heaviest weight I can handle and I get by default two arm workouts in a week (light tri on chest day with heavy concentrated bi and the opposite for back day)

    I do this split and I like it a lot. Works for me because I can blast my bis or tris to the fullest instead of combining tris with chest for example where they are usually shot after a heavy chest workout

    You'd be better off training upper/lower.

    Do you feel like your arms are recovering enough following this split setup?

    If they feel fatigued I'll rotate the 3 days around to allow a specific muscle group to recover longer. Or switch to a different setup

    I have done this split but I never trained legs w/ another muscle group. My leg workout is taxing on its own lol. I have done this split for a month to shock some change into my body. I feel that even though I cut my sets shorter cuz I'm mixing chest/bi and back/tri; after 4 weeks I feel that I do not recooperate fast enough. 1 month w/ a split like this works for me and than I go back to doing a single body part a day

    That's not what my post was in reference to.

    I was meaning like this.

    Monday- Upper Body
    Tuesday- Lower Body
    Thursday- Upper Body
    Friday- Lower Body
