    Agonist/Antagonist workouts

    What do you guys think about working out the agonist/antagonist muscles on the same day? e.g. bi's/tri's, chest/back, delts/lats.

    Has anyone ever tried this, I read that this was good to shock the muscles into new growth.

    Might as well give it a shot.

    But umm, what's the difference between your back and your lats? I'm pretty sure those are the same thing

    and your delts don't have an antagonist. Well, I guess you could say that gravity it their antagonist.

    I only tried biceps/triceps and it worked good. But I wouldnt recommend chest/back because they are two big body parts. You wont get enough intensity after doing back.. so Id suggest not doing them in the same day. Back/shoulders seems fine tough
    I rape back.
    If you were half as good as me you'd be close to perfection.

    by back I mean rhomboids.
    And shoulder presses and pulldowns for the delt/lats.

    Sorry guys, my brains wasted. Just finished my CV circuits (I haven't got enough energy left to think clearly).

    Why do you train "back" and "lats" on different days since alot of exercises involve them both?

    ok, this type of training is good for the smaller muscle groups but not for the larger ones.

    Thanks for the feedback guys I really appreciate it.
