Everytime i finish the major body part of my workout, im often too tired to train my 'smaller' bodypart with 100% intensity. My workout generally lasts around 50 mins and has about 18-22 sets.
Heres my workout:
Monday: Legs + arms
Tuesday: Chest + Back
Thursday: Legs + Arms
Friday: Chest + Back
e.g. yesterday i workout legs and arms. I squatted and leg pressed with full focus, but after i finished i was so tired i couldnt even get a good pump in my barbell curls.
im thinking about thinking these bodyparts seperately, so i devote 1 day entirely to a specific body part and also hitting the shoulders on the day i do arms. Any other advice or suggestions?

I think your split scheme is a bit weird, why train your legs and chest 2 times a week. If you want to spend more attention to your smaller muscles like biceps triceps, shoulders ect.
You should train your chest 1 time a week a big workout, and the other time a bit smaller like 1 or 2 excersises. I would recommend something like this.
Big Chest training
Along with triceps(this is a good combination because when you train your chest you also train your triceps
Back and biceps
legs and shoulders
Short Chest training, and for example biceps or triceps.
that's what i recommend you
I wish you good luck
