    overtraining?

    i ussually target as follows chest monday tues shoulders , wed bis tris , thurs legs , fri back ,

    everything is growing especially my legs and biceps triceps but i feel as if my chest is lagging and that most of my strength from benching is coming from my triceps and back only gear im on is sustanon and i was wondering if it would be alrite to train chest on friday also? because i ussually only stay sore for 1 to 2days im recovering alot faster it seems?

    I used to lift like that as well but, look, tuesday your using muscles that you used on monday, wed you are using muscles that were used on tuesday. I think that might be too much. what is your rep/set/exercise scheme lookin like?
    I personally dont see anything wrong with this split

    mon-legs
    tue-off
    wed-chest/shoulders/tris
    thu-off
    fri-back/bis/forearms
    sat/sun-off (cardio maybe)

    just keep track, guage your progress and if nothing changes, you need to change something.

    Once a week is enough, switch to dumbells and keep the chest elavated and shoulders back.

    Think stretch and squeeze, dont just train as heavy as you can.

    Your triceps are taking a pounding. They are getting worked 3 days in a row.

    I personally space a at least a day between shoulders and chest since your delts are getting it twice.
