Each of those Links where the different workouts Im going to do during the week. It included Arms, back, Legs, Chest, and shoulders. I want to do leg day on Friday because I want to be able to do cardio from Monday-Thursday.
So considering Legs day to be Friday, In what Order Should I do the other workouts. I was think about Chest on Monday, Back on Tuesday, Arms on Wednesday, and Shoulders on Thursday. Does it seem to be effective? The thing I don't want is that I'm working a muscle and then the other Day I'm sore but I have to work that muscle a little bit more. Please Help.

Where are you at in terms of experience? If you are just starting out, you might want to use a full body approach like Mark Rippetoe's Starting Strength. If you are an intermediate, maybe Bill Starr's 5x5 workout. A M-W-F approach makes it easier to squeeze in cardio on off days.
Generally, the bb.com workout articles (this one included) suck.Lean body mass is my fat burner.

Great quotes from BB.com:
"I disagree with people that says that high reps and low weight do not tone your muscles . High reps (20-30) do something , but I dont know what is it, I hope somebody can tell something about it"

I don't get it?
What do you mean? Because You've actually answered yourself when you said You did not to work on the same muscles back to back.
Animal programs are however enginneered exactly correct. Only if your like me You get anctious and want to do more than enough. anyways I could not stay on even the most advanced animal routine and moved on to HVT. "Within 4 years"
If your a begginer Animal routines are a definite starting place.

semi advanced routines
There is a semi advanced routine called the push and pull where you work the stomach back and bicepts on the firstday, the legs on the second day and the shoulders chest and triceps on the last day and than you take one day off and reapeat so you would actually make almost two passes per week.
I can't see why you would not want to work on biceps after back day. I don't see a problem with it.
Maybe you have your own strategy.
