Noone can tell if it's too close but yourself. If you feel weak when you do tris, then you probably need to rest another day. I personally either do chest/tris the same day or I do chest day 1 and tris 3 days later.

If you position the bar lower, near your abdomen while doing close grips, it doesn't use much of the chest.

i agree, if u do them right it doesnt use the chest that much, so u should be alright...but i do chest/tris!

Actually guys any time you do any pushing motion you are using you chest.IMO I wouldnt work chest and tris but thats me.. I do chest monday and arms on thrusday.. That way you arent over training your arms.. figure this. If your doing 4 sets of flat bench 3 of incline and 3 or decline or dips that already 10 sets using tris then you do another 2 or 3 of close grips presses, 2 or 3 of skull crushers, 2 or 3 of dips, and2 or 3 of push downs thats any where between 18 and 22 sets of tris. Just my .02

ya thats true, but every since i did chest/tris my arms and chest are growing like weeds. but everyone is different, so u just have to find what works best for u....

i do the same chest and tris the same day i figure that working them both in the same day will benifit u...everyone on this board says to workout one muscle a week well there ya go when u work them both in the same day u kill ur tris and give them a full week to recover but as always said and IMO everyone is different u have to find what works best for u and not always what works best for others...good luck bro
