I was wondering if chest and back go good together in a workout split. For the past 4 years my routine was chest and tris, back and bi's, legs, then shoulders now im thinking of changing my routine to work opposing muscles:
Monday: Chest and Back
Tuesday: Cardio, abs
Thursday: Cardio, abs
Friday: arms and shoulders
Has anyone used a routine similar to this? Would it be a good split or is it overtraining?

What is overtraining?.......
anyhow, yes I do chest and back, twice a week. Has worked fairly well. However if you only work your chest and back once a week, it will be pretty messy IMO as there are many big exercises that need to be performed and it will drain you out quick. Hence why I think a power chest day/ hyperthrophy back and heavy back / hyperthrophy chest is a better alternative."Do not subordinate fundamental principles to minor details."
