    i end up working most things indirectly 2 times a week

    i.e.

    i do chest/bi - chest obviously utilizing tris, more direct bi work
    then i do back/tri - more direct tri work, back uses bis

    I always hit everything at least twice. Once per week isn't enough stimulation for a lot of people, especially those who aren't using.

    same here.

    and it switches every week for a muscle group twice a week.

    one week it's chest, next it's legs, shoulders etc

    It worked well for Preemo.
    I'd stick with it if I were you for at least a few months.

    i pretty much plan on sticking with it for awhile only because its so much better than my previous routine that i've already noticed a little size gain and a ton of strength gain.
