    Am i the only one who hates doing chest and tris in same day?

    By the time I get to tris, my lifts are so bad I don't think I get a good tri workout at all.

    Maybe I lack muscle endurance, but I much prefer doing tris after bis so i'm fresh.

    Even if you can't lift as much you've still worked the muscle really well.

    I figure why work tris on chest day and on its own day when i can just combine?
    I hate stupid.

    I'm right there with you, chest/tri back/bi didn't stimulate my arms well enough, so I worked a split like this

    Back/Traps
    Chest/Shoulder
    Abs/Forearms
    Legs
    Bis/Tris


    Bi's and Tri's both get hit on their own day as well as on back/chest day. Plenty of rest inbetween arm days. Seen some nice gains

    My tri's get worked so much during chest day that It would be overtraining for me to do them on the same day. I have to train bi's and tris together on separate days. I mean especially with dips my tris are toast on chest day.

    Hey this is my first post
    anyway about the triceps on the same day as chest. Its not a bad idea at all. remember that the amount of tricep involvement in your bench presses really depends on whether you are focusing on your chest or not. When you workout your shoulders you are also using your triceps to a certain extent . Focus on moving the weights with your shoulder or chest instead of your triceps and they wont be tired as much. Same goes with people who do back/bicep. you should focus on squeezing your back rather than pulling the weights towards you.

    I dont have a tricep day cos they usually get a huge pump when i do my chest, they are sore for the rest of the week.

    I also get better results only doing themwith my chest.

    Don't listen to what everyone else says. Do what you think is best for you. I personally like chest/bi, back/tri. It gives me more strength when I work each of those parts and it seems to help my forearms.

    yeah i never do chest and trcieps. or chest and shoulders. It just doesnt work what ever muscle you do second is so weak and tired.

    I prefer doing groups that dont match. such as
    chest and quads.

    back, triceps hamstrings

    shoulders,biceps and calfs

    i have benefit more from this coz my muslces such as biceps have to work on bicep day and back day, etc etc.

    for those that do tri and bi you should work your tris first b/c of bigger muscle

    yeah i know what you mean. i like to work my back and chest on the same day and biceps and triceps on a different day. since they are opposing muscles (agonist/antagonist) this makes a lot of sense..

    If you can't lift with your tris, use common sense! Lower the weights! If you're in the gym and trying to lift for gains, form always comes first. I see people in my gym, while doing lying tricep extension, trying to swing the weight up when it's too heavy for them.

    I respond much better to giving them their own day.....I used to always do chest with tris and back with bis.....however, I dont think I will EVER go back....my arm workouts are 100X better when done on a seperate day....besides...i like the idea of going to the gym, and knowing I"m just going to hit my chest, and putting all my effort into chest, for 35 minutes and then going home.

    well, no.....if your bis are your weak point I would definatley train them before tris...I personally like to superset bis and tris throughout my arm workout. Doing the larger muscle first is much more relevant when using a muscle that is involved in both lifts....such as if you train chest and tris on the same day.

    this reasoning is the exact opposite of what happens in practice and what most people find in the gym. A bicep pump seems to help most peoples tri lifts....it seems to provide a cussion that allows you to push more weight with your tris. And it DEFINATLEY doesnt effect range of motion....i dont know about you, but I can definatley fully extend my arm when i have a bi pump...

    Yea I feel ya man...
    Same for me I've been doing chest/tri's for over a year now.

    I just SWITCHED last week ... gave tris their own day.
    And I can tell you it's much better this way

    I can actually work tri's to the fullest without being week from doing chest.
