    well

    There is no one way to match up body parts. You can mix it up in a variety of ways. One rule of thumb, however, you usually want to give each major muscle group it's own day (i.e. chest, back, legs) I even split my legs into 2 days a week, focusing on hamstrings one day and quads another.

    Bench Presses and Biceps five days a week. Don't bother working the other muscles groups.










    ...

    In all honesty though, it's a matter of preference. People's bodies respond differently to things, and as such, there isn't an ideal set way to pair up muscles.

    Some people hit their whole upper body one day and follow with their lower body the next, and others do splits similar to those posted above.

    Just experiment and see what works best for you, mate.

But it ain't about how hard ya hit. It's about how hard you can get it and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done!"

    chest/tri
    back/bi
    legs/shoulders/traps

    some people add shoulders with chest/tri, but personally I think that makes the workout much longer and will force you to hit the chest/tri with less volume and effort.

    Any unrelated muscle group will work fine.

    Personally I prefer to superset a large muscle group with a smaller one.

    (i.e. back & calves, chest and abs, legs & traps...)

    I'm in the gym 7 days a week. Once I do the 3 day rotation I'm on,,,I just start it over again. No off days for me,,,,so (for me) it's working the muscles 2,,,sometimes 3 times a week (depending on how the rotation works out).

    6 days a week is the way I do it! (Okay 5 right now cause I'm busy)
    I did your split for a while but my arms didn't budge.

    This is what always works best for me:

    Chest, shoulders, tris
    quads, hams, calves
    back, rear delts, bi, abs
    rest then repeat

    Good old push/legs/pull
    I avoid overtraining my arms and delts with this split. OP if you use this split which I recommend, make sure you "deload" every now and again.
