    Training back and chest together.

    So I finally did it, trained chest and back together, it's great! I always heard that it would be to much, especially for us older folks, but not the case at all. I stuck to 3 exercises per body part. I changed my PPL now to:

    Day 1 Chest and back
    Day 2 Legs
    Day 3 Shoulders and arms.

    I hope everyone is safe and healthy. I have to say i really appreciate my garage gym even more now, I do feel bad for people who lost their gym. Let's continue to pray and practice our social distancing, so we can get through this.

    I picked up this old school plate loading lat pulldown machine last fall, works like a charm. The seat slides off to perform seated rows like below.

    When I saw the 'Training back and chest together' thread title, I figured this would be a thread about the pullover exercise.
    It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.

    It's easy to not be afraid of tigers when you're sitting in your living room watching a television program about tigers. When you're in the jungle where the tigers are, it's quite a different story.

    Well, your sources of information suck. Stop listening to them.

    I've been training that exact program for around 15 years. Dorian said he had good luck with it for a while so I tried it and love it. It's very efficient as you hit arms and delts on their own day; then again as a secondary muscle group on chest/back day.

    The only thing I do different is the order. I do:
    Mon=delts, bis, tris
    Wed=legs (all; quads, hams, calves), traps, forearms
    Fri=chest, back

    I do this to give 1 more rest day between arms and my chest/back day. It's easier to train delts and arms with a sore chest and back then the opposite.
    And I do abs on mon and fri

    There's not a much more efficient 3 day split out there
