On a day like chest/tris, should I do all of my primary chest exercises before moving onto tris, should I switch back and forth, or should I just do the heaviest/biggest lifts first?

A general rule is to do all the work for the larger muscle group first, then move on to the smaller muscle. The exception to this would be if you were prioritizing the smaller muscle, to correct an imbalance.No brain, no gain.
You can't out-train bad nutrition.

However, today I did tris after my chest, and it felt INCREDIBLE.
\shrugs. I guess I had an off day last time for back/bis.
Rep'd you all, even though I've only got 1 rep power.PRs - Sq / B / D / Total
