    Chest and Back should be in different days, bud.

    You can train Bis and Tris together (I do). DO Triceps before Biceps.

    What about the rest of your body? Shoulders, Legs,Core, etc.?

    I'm answering your question under the assumption you are performing a 4 day split.
    It is correct that you shouldn't work chest and back together. You Shouldn't work two large muscle groups in the same workout, so that you can properly devote the necessary effort to each of the muscle groups. So that is good advice.

    IMO, it is incorrect that you should work bis and tris in the same workout. While it can be done, I feel it is generally unecessary and less effective than working Triceps with either chest or shoulders and biceps with either back or chest.
    Relatively speaking, your triceps and biceps are small muscle groups. There is no need to devote an entire workout to them without incorperating a larger muscle group. Also, in order to actually have an 'arms' day, you will have to do something screwy with your split like work chest and back together.

    Really, that looks fine. Nothing fundamentally wrong with it.
    Personally though, I prefer:
    Monday: Chest/bis
    Tuesday:legs
    wendsdayff
    thursday: shoulders/trap/tris
    friday: back/calves

    ***edit***
    Oh, there is one thing wrong, you shouldn't do abs every workout.

    I've been doing Dumbbell Barbell Home Workout for 10 weeks, and added exercises/work outs. It says to do Chest/Back on the same day ..?

    Shoulders I do on Friday too. Wed is Legs.

    Working arms on the same day makes sense on a 5-day split, and I find it to be an effective way to add intensity to arms workout. Depending on the goal, I don't see a problem working out just arms on one day.

    The truth is nobody is genetically identical and everyone experiences different growth to different stimuli. Some routines work for some and not for others. As long as you don't go overboard performing 400 sets of arm exercises or what not, give it a try to what you think is fit and see if you're progressing with the routine.

    so what would you reccomend then, i usually do
    mon-ches n tris
    wed-back n bis
    fri-sholders
    sunday-legs

    abs at end of each workout..
    Ditto what BigJosh said, nothing fundamentally wrong about this. Abs can be worked on every session provided the intensity is kept low (3 sets of some exercises) and variety of exercises are performed to target different aspects of the abdominal muscles. It works well for me when I do 3 sets of abs exercises after each session of a 5-day split. However, when there are only worked on twice a week, then the intensity of the exercises should be increased.
