    If you are doing both with good intensity your going to be cheating one of the muscle groups...

    I would be careful about putting shoulders too close before chest as you may end up not being able to pound your chest with tired shoulders...I like Legs alone...they are big and take a lot of energy and will power to train properly. Can you train on Thursdays? A Mon/Tues/Thurs/Fri split is pretty common and easy to work with. You may be fine with Shoulders on Saturday before Monday Chest, but I personnally would not do it.

    if prefer doing most upper body exercises on a sunday and then lower body on a wednesday, with tri's now but i seem to be getting good gains as it is and don't training almost through all the week mean ALOT more intake of proteins, vitamins etc.? and some exercises involve working a different muscle group that you might have been training the day before, its still recovering therefore you may lose a tiny bit there.

    i prefer working out for an hour myself as i can work more muscles and i still get mass, strength etc. without going through everyday thinking 'crap, guess im working out again' as it becomes more of a job training almost everyday

    If you enjoy training, training 4-5 times a week isn't a hassle...
