Do you think I can work my back and shoulders in the same workout. Missed training today so gonna combine workouts so I don't **** up my routine. My logic is your shoulders and triceps don't get used in back exercises so in thoughts it should be ok. And both my biceps and triceps should get a nice workout and pump. Gonna alternate between each muscle group.
Here's my planned routine
DB shoulder press
Behind the neck military press
Front lateral raises
Side lateral raises
Seated reverse pulldowns
Bent over rows
Each exercise 4 sets pullups 30.

The posterior deltoid gets used in both rows (especially with overhand/pronated grip and if the shoulders come out to sides) and lateral raises (it and the front delt contract a bit to help the middle delt abduct).
It also contributes during pull ups and deadlifts (especially at lockout) a bit to assist the lats. Pretty sure the entire delt is stabilizing shoulder socket (along with rotor cuff) during shrugs too.
Not saying it's a bad idea to combine them though.
