    Chest/bi or Back/bi?


    My previous workout was
    Chest/Tri
    Back/Bi
    Legs/Shoulders
    Off
    Repeat ..... when repeating I would do hypertrophy reps

    Now my question is can I do:
    Chest/Bi
    Back/Tri, or maybe put the legs/shoulders inbewteen instead?
    Legs/Shoulders
    Off
    Repeat...with hypertrophy reps??

    Well I'm sure you already know this and that is why you had your program designed the way it was but the reasoning behind working those groups of muscles together is that they are primary and secondary muscles. For example when you do bench press you are working both your pecs and triceps. When you do lat pull downs you are working both your lats and your biceps, etc.

    I used this same program with some variations for years. I am now doing DG training, which is great you might considering it.

    EX

    Monday: chest, shoulders, triceps, back width, back thickness
    Tuesday: Biceps, Forearms, quads, hamstrings, calves
    Wens: off
    Repeat

    You do not have to do DG training with these muscle groups I was just giving an example of another way to mix up your workout.....
    Also you could do a total body workout one day, take a day off, then do another total body workout. This allows you to workout every muscle group 3 times a week.

    try finding a proven program, do it for at least 6 months. during that time learn why it is proven, ie works. if you want to change then, get on another program for 6 months and learn why that one works. now compare the 2 programs. find the similarities and the differences.
    you can call me "ozzie" for short.

    Focus on movements, not individual muscle groups.

    You're going to drive yourself crazy figuring out the best muscle split. Train movements and effective muscle groups.

    Day 1:
    Lower-Deadlift/Hamstrings/Quads

    Day 2:
    Upper-Bench Press/Chest/Back/Bi or Tri

    Day 3:
    Lower-Squat/Quads/Hams

    Day 4:
    Upper-Overhead Press/Shoulder/Back/Bi or Tri

    Hit your main movement for whatever. Then for each body group I listed, pick one compound movement and hit it for 4-6 sets of 10-20 reps.

    It doesn't matter one bit. Please revert to my previous post. Keep it simple.
