Back & chest

  1. Back & chest


    Any input on working these two in the same day? I always have but recently have been thinking of splitting them up on seperate days to see if i notice a diffence on strength output.


  2. I do chest and back on the same day. Arnold loved doing chest and back on the same day.

  3. I always do back with chest. I like to get blood into the upper back prior to pressing, as I have found it primes me for sustainable movement patterns. I hit chest twice a week and back up to 4 times a week (feel better this wat).

  4. I like to alternate back and forth, chest back chest back and so on

  5. Meaning in the same day, alternate each during the workout

  6. Good enough for arnold good enough for me.

  7. Love doin this,...supersets after big compounds ...Many ways to do it! Big upper body synergistic pump

  8. Lately I have been doing a back movement followed by a chest movement (3 sets) followed by a back movement (3 sets), etc. Its been working out really nice for me.

  9. I love doing these together, but tend to switch it up depdning on how often I can train ing a week. If I'm able to get in a lot in one week, I'll typically do chest and back on separate days early in the week and then have a superset chest/back day later in the week.

  10. I have a two week split that I do based off my work schedule. One week I work 3x a week and it's a 4x6 routine of compound lifts. The next week I train 4x a week and do back and chest in the same workout. LOVE it.

  11. Depends on what your weaknesses are. I would have to train for 3hrs to get through a successful back and chest workout.

    For natural weight lifters, you can do a successful chest/back workout in an hour twice a week. Just depends on your goals, diet, recovery, sleep...etc.

  14. If you're looking to be OPTIMAL?

    Splitting them up is wiser from what I gather. That's a lot of CNS torture too but everyone is different and can handle different thresholds.

    I don't understand why people take so long to workout. I'd end up doing every machine in the building if I stayed for 2-3 hours lol I do my sets and move on.

  17. That's right lots of guys lifting light weights for volume these days not to mention there's plenty of guys that just like to live at the gym.

  18. This week i started a different routine. I've been doing a lot of back\chest movements or upper/lower or push/pull ...etc. went back to high volume one muscle group per week. Did 20 sets for chest today all in the 8-15 rep range. Finished in 45 min or so.

    Just saying for me personally i do a lot of volume. An arm workout with nothing but supersets and 90sec rest periods takes me 90min plus

    Yes, but are you natural? No steroids, pro hormones, GH, etc.???

  22. I do 36 sets for bi's and tri's combined, that is supersets though it takes around 30 minutes. I can't do near the volume for larger muscle groups without burning out. Well perhaps if I dropped the intensity or increased rest periods enough but I'd struggle to make gains. I'm glad though as I'd get bored as hell training for 90 minutes.

  23. I like to separate them as I put too much intensity in either one to fully maximally work them.

    Im not saying I wont do them together from once in a blue moon or pre contest when calories are lowered, but generally they are seperated for myself
