    It's your choice. People group chest and triceps because there is significant carryover between the two while performing horizontal pushes.
    Bodybuilding is 60% training and 50% diet. Yes that adds up to 110%, because that's what you should be giving it. Change the inside, and the physique will follow.

    Doesn't really matter. I tend to train chest and triceps on the same day because it is an easy transition to make (ie: standard bench press to close grip bench press), and because- as mentioned above- triceps are involved in horizontal push movements. That being said, training triceps on a back day allows you to focus on the specific muscle group because you aren't burning out your tris during chest presses prior to your isolation movements. I think that the difference is fairly minimal though. Some people never even focus on bicep or tricep specific training and still have massive arms (531 training for example). Just do what works for you- chest and triceps, back and triceps, shoulders and triceps, biceps and triceps; as long as you are training, you will get results.

    I was under the impression that you do back and biceps (pull) and chest and tricep (push) together.

    Everybody is different if chest and triceps are where you grow best then do that. Some people feel they need another day to focus on triceps to get the most out of it. I do chest and biceps.

    ^^ That.

    Do what works for you, but I always work synergistic muscles together so they are fully recovered the next time they get worked. I don't want "still recovering" triceps to hold back my bench press on the next chest day.

    How you decide to split your routine is totally personal. For many people a limiting factor is how many days a week they have available to train and how much time they can dedicate to each session.

    There are many good examples of how to structure your time in the “splits” section under the “find a plan” tab on this site.

    Personally, I like to mix things up every few months. I’ll do a five day split for 10-12 weeks, deload, then switch over to a six day split, deload, rinse and repeat.

    Doing chest/biceps, then back/triceps works for me the best....also hits them 2 times a week without no real sweat :P....

    In any case chest exercises should focus mostly on chest, and back exercises mostly on back.....not hit hard the secondary movers .
    If your body cannot handle it, make sure sheer willpower will.....

    Alternate between the two, don't choose one way and stick with it.

    As others have said, your triceps will be pre-exhausted from working your chest and likewise for your biceps after working your back.

    Switching things around will help keep the muscles stimulated and also keeps you mentally stimulated as well.
    Train hard, eat well, get plenty sleep - repeat

    Depends what kind of split you like and how often you want to hit each muscle. On a 4 day split I used to do, back, shoulder/triceps,off, legs, chest/biceps, off,off and worked great for me on a bulk. At the moment I am doing a push/pull 4 days a week and like it a little more because of the frequency. Try it and see for yourself what works.

    Jax's 3-Day Split

    You can perform either split routine as long as there is a fair amount of rest in between them. For example

    A 3 day split
    Monday- Chest and Biceps
    Tuesday- Rest, Cardio or Abs
    Wednesday- Legs and Shoulders
    Thursday- Rest, Cardio or Abs
    Friday- Back and Triceps
    Saturday- Rest, Cardio or Abs
    Sunday- Rest

    About 4 exercises each body part. 4 sets of 8-10 reps. And switch up the exercises every other week. For example, using dumbbells and barbells.

    Jax's 3-Day Split

    Your workout program is good, but doesn't give them secondary muscles enough rest time. Try my workout plan.

    A 3 day split
    Monday- Chest and Biceps
    Tuesday- Rest, Cardio or Abs
    Wednesday- Legs and Shoulders
    Thursday- Rest, Cardio or Abs
    Friday- Back and Triceps
    Saturday- Rest, Cardio or Abs
    Sunday- Rest

    I do Chest biceps on Monday, legs on Wednesday, shoulders and Triceps on Thursday, and then I'll do just back on Saturday. I feel this works because your triceps are being hit on shoulder day too. Also, to me, back needs it's own day it's a huge muscle, and I deadlift on Wednesday which leaves my back a little sore so I like to split it up.

    Chest w/ triceps as your already using triceps on a bench press, plus when you get heavier on bench your triceps will need to be hit harder etc.. especially on the lower portion of the ROM.

    I do chest then bi/tri on a different day. Why would I want my arms exhausted when I am trying to put mass on my chest?

    I do a 4 day split with chest day 1 and arms day 3. Problem solved.

    personally, i dont like it coz if i'm doing chest/bi, i'll be using both my triceps and biceps through that workout, which means for ur next workout, u'll pretty much be doing the same.
    another is, i'd rather focus on my chest rather than my arms. my bi's don't recover that fast for the next back workout. i hate it when my bi's too worn out to do pullups.
    focus!

    I usually do chest and tri's the same day. I do tri's first though. This way they're not burned out like they are if I do chest first. Also with the tri's being exhausted I tend to engage the pecs easier when doing chest. I use chest exercises soley for pecs, not to just put big weight up which can incorporate too much tricep involvement.
    Yes I'm 62 and natural

    Tried out Chest/Tris but my Tris get fried from heavy benching would prefer Chest with Bis if I had to make a choice

    Either way, do what works for you. If recovery is an issue, you will know anyway

    I'm going to go ahead and second ^^^That with a this^^^. This could not have been explained any better.
