You are not only using the shoulder joint 6 days a week, but involving it in a pushing motion 6 days a week. I just see this as a really really poor idea, that will lead to overuse injuries.

maybe you should find a proven program that will help you reach your goals. lets start with, what are your goals?you can call me "ozzie" for short.

yuck, i see some shoulder problems in your future with that routine. try an upper/lower split instead, and add another rest day. or better yet, depending on your experience, 5/3/1 or SS.

Just to be different, ill even go with the fact your are not really allowing much time for recvoery between workouts, one full day rest is not really enough for a big muscle group.

ok everybody first off thanks for the feedback.
Heres my stats:
lifting experience 4 years
bodyfat 6 percent
The reason im taking this route is because i have definitely plateaued. I lift hard when i go in the gym. I actually ran a methadrol log recently so you can go there to check all my workouts. I know what i am doing in the weight room. I have tried switching up rep ranges diff exercises every lift and nothing! no change. My diet is super clean. I live the lifestyle of bodybuilding i dont just work out. I figured the day that i do push workouts those muscles will be resting on back and leg day plus the actual rest day. I was doing a steady chest/back/shoulders/arms/legs/rest/rest routine. I want to try now to target the muscle groups twice per week. I hope that farther clears things up. Please any advice is greatly appreciated

chest and back on same days is not something i would recommend. Unless you can only hit the gym twice a week or something
