    Default Back/Shoulder/Tricep workout

    Hey everyone, I've been doing a 3 day split, four days a week so that every week I hit muscle groups twice. It looks something like this: Tues- Chest/Biceps Wed- Shoulder/Back/Tricep Fri-Legs Sat- Chest/Biceps and so on. Is the wednesday workout too much? should I switch to do back alone? any advice. Thanks, Mo

    Hi mate, Hit muscle groups once per week, No more than that.. change your wednesday split, Shoulders/back/triceps don't go together very well... Try this:
    Chest/triceps. Back/biceps. Legs/shoulders. This is a simple yet effective split. This split suites well to Monday,Wednesday,Friday. There is no point doing each muscle group twice per week on a split program; for this will hinder your gains, the only time you work a muscle twice per week is in a Total Body Workout. You can swap back alone if you like, but Try the split i posted up there, Back and Biceps work well together.

    Thanks Wazza, I like that split, more logical than what I was using. On the Back/Bicep Day, would you hit the back first then biceps or alternate, same for chest/tris?

    Always do the largest muscle groups first. So yes, you would do chest, then triceps/ back, then biceps/ legs, then shoulders

    I agree, always start with the largest muscle groups first, as you can see with this split, see the order.. Chest/triceps. Back/biceps. Legs/shoulders
