    triceps and chest and biceps together. but i believe some people do biceps with back or legs, maybe wrong. and you don't need to dedicate a whole day to abs/obliques.

    What about triceps, since triceps are for pushing motions?

    There are some benefits to working the push/pull muscle groups together, such as chest and back, or quads/hamstrings, bis/tris, etc. However this isn't always most efficient for athletes because if you are going to the gym and working just bis and tris you are wasting a trip to the gym (as an athlete). Our split in college was

    Chest, shoulders, tri's ME
    Legs, Back, Bi's DE
    Rest
    Chest, shoulders, tri's DE
    Legs, back, bi's ME

    You could throw in an ab curcuit on a DE day, but I wouldnt go to the gym and spend an hour working out the abs, again from an athlete perspective since this is a sports thread. Rules change some for BB'ing.

    Smile honestly

    I think you should be doin upper one day and lower the next....abs on lower day...

    The things you do is something a body builder would do...

    I'm not sure wat sport u play but...for example in football u dont just use ur bid and tri...u use your whole body to make a tackle or watever..and in base ball u use all your muscles to hit the ball..

    Wat I'm getting to is you should focuse on Olympic liffts like power clean...and lifts like bench,squat and deadlift...

    And when u finish those u can do ur secondary stuff like DB's... And plyos is a whole nother story.....


    EDIT: sorry shoulda checked ur sport...basketball trains diff than this...unless u play one of these. Sports then dont worry bout wat I said

    Athletes should not train like bodybuilders. Knowing your sport would greatly help, but all sports weight training would be improved by looking more to a full-body system that addresses general strength. The means focusing on things like squats (either back or front), press or bench press, pull-ups/chin-ups, cleans. These exercises are often done in the same workout (no upper/lower or push/pull split). This is usually because you also need to work in things like plyos, cardio, and sports-specific skills.

    As a starting point, most people I know would suggest something like Starting Strength or The Strongest Shall Survive (Starr's 5x5).

    Are you training for bodybuilding or athletic performance?
    If bodybuilding, then splits are fine and then one you got listed there will do.

    But since you're posting this in the Sports Training forum, then I assume you're more concerned about athletic performance (and don't worry, training for that will still get you a beach worthy body that bodybuilding splits are made for).

    Cthulhupun is on the right track with his suggestion: don't think of individual muscles, think of training movements/lifts. Such as you do cleans and front squats one day, bench press and snatch another and back squats, pull ups and jerks on a third for example.
    Train lifts not muscles.
    Strength + Speed = Power

    If you never fail, you aren't truly pushing yourself to the limit. If you never push yourself to the limit, how do you know what you're truly capable of?

    Depends on goals

    If the reason you ask is simply for a frame of reference then there are plenty of combinations. You just don't want to neglect certain body parts. If you're training for a sport, I would suggest sticking to upper body and lower body days.
