    Do you do Back/triceps,Back/ Biceps or have a whole day for arms

    So Im trying to figure out how to set up my routine. Right now im doing Back/triceps and Chest/Biceps.

    Ive been trying to tweak it for a minute now and can't come with a good solution. Right now its

    Tuesday Back/Triceps
    Thursday: Shoulders
    Sat Legs/Abs
    Sunday/ Chest/Biceps

    Am I giving enough time in between days? Like will my triceps still be sore for my shoulder workout and will biceps still be sore for my back workout? Should I just go back to back/biceps chest/ triceps? I would rather not do a chest/shoulder day because I feel like I will half ass one of the other ones. Let me know if routine looks good and what kinda changes I could do. I used to do shoulders/biceps on fridays and chest alone on sundays but sometimes I can't find a spotter on fridays.

    To the guys that have seperate day for arms do u combine 2 upper body workouts into one? I wonder if I could do
    Monday: Back
    Tuesday: Chest
    Thursday: Shoulders
    Friday: Arms
    Sat: Legs

    Would i not be giving enough time between chest and shoulders? Also would my triceps be sore from shoulders?

    Do you do Back/triceps,Back/ Biceps or have a whole day for arms

    Chest
    Shoulders and back
    Biceps and triceps
    Legs
    Then what ever muscle group that feels most rested gets blasted again and I take 2 random days off.

    Do you think my shoulders will suffer because of my triceps from saturday?
    What if I do
    Tuesday Chest
    Wednesday Legs
    Friday Arms
    Sunday Shoulders

    Would that be better?

    This is my opinion, if you are training for mass... you need to train heavy and with intensity. Give each muscle group trained 7 days rest... I have even taken more. I have always had good results with the push, legs, pull routine once a week. I think thats more than enough if... you go into the gym and TOTALLY DISTROY!!! Any more than once a week, won't allow for proper recovery. My week looks like this.

    Mon: Chest, shoulders, triceps
    Tue: Cardio
    Wen: legs
    Thur: Cardio
    Fri: Back, biceps, abs
    Sat: Off
    Sun: Off

    I believe cardio done on the days of weight training will hurt your gains. I will also tell you... I never saw the results I wanted untill I put as much effort into my diet as I did my workouts! Sleep is important too bro.

    I change every couple months, currently:

    Back/4arm
    Chest/bicep
    Legs/abs
    Shoulders/tricep

    My layout is determined by the least amount of re-racking. So back day is Rows, Rack pulls, shrugs, bar in the cage in same position just change the weight for each, then pulldowns/pullups, and back to the bar in the cage for 4arms. That way I save a lot of time.

    each person finds his own routine, some recover faster than others...
    you can go on one body part a day or many body parts a day, the essential is to give enough rest for a given muscle at least 2 days of rest better if 3 days. like if you do back do not do biceps till 3 days later.
    i go by my gut feelings and i listen to my body when it comes to how much i should rest, sometimes i postpone a workout because i feel i need one more day of rest.
    better not to go to the maximum every workout, do not destroy your muscles every time, go hard on a given muscle every other workout

    I've been doing: Full body push / full body pull / off / full body push / full body pull/ off / off
    But the last two training days I emphasize arms more through the order of exercises.
