Just wonder if anyone has had success training Shoulders and Back on the same day. I'm starting a new split today where I'm trying to add more cardio...I'll run this split for about 4 weeks

I guess it would depend on how many exercises....reps and sets you were doing for the 2 combined. Personally I have had better success splitting the two ( I know...I am one of THOSE guys who still do splits..but I may change soon enough)...and haven't seen anything wrong with it. I figure the more I can individualize on weak points like my shoulders and certain parts of my back (outer part of lats) the better off I would be. I can only speak on what has been good for me....but if you think you can pull it off...by all means give it a go.

Well, I did Back/Shoulders yesterday and felt great...I didn't loose any strength in Shoulders after training Back first...and I felt pumped as hell.
I love splits and change it up every month...i tried that 5x5 workout and hated it, i felt like my workout was not complete and I had two much energy left over. I am not a beginner and need something more advanced

In my opinion, a workout routine is only as hard as you make it. If you were doing the 5X5 and still had to much energy at the end, then you were definitely not using enough weight. You could always change up the rest time to your liking as well. I did the 5X5 and I loved it!
