    As im sure the benefits for everyone would be different but is it better to have separte day for chest/tri and another day for back/bi (current routine)

    or have a day where i switch back and forth between chest and back exercises and then a seperate day for arms?


    i was recently advised to do the latter but wasnt sure if i should take that advice seriously

    everybody responds differently, so give both a try.

    in general though, the previous would be better in so much as the chest and back are relatively big muscles (ie. large energy requirements) compared to your biceps and triceps. so if you're doing chest and back on the same day, you'll run out of energy quickly and not be able to work them as much as if you did one of the larger muscle groups with one of your arm muscles

    ie back/bi & chest/tri or back/tri and chest/bi

    i have separate days for chest, back, arms and shoulders. i found it work best for me that way. usually ill combine arms and shoulders however in one day.
