    just dont do 2 large muscle groups in the same day ie dont do chest with back or back with legs or chest with legs.

    my split is:

    mon- chest and biceps
    tuesday- back and triceps
    wednesday- rest
    thursday- shoulders and traps
    friday- legs

    I would have to disagree with you here. On Monday you are getting a lot of stimulation in the triceps while doing chest. Then, the next day you are going to pound them again? I would give at least one rest day in between the two if you are going to do this setup.
    My triceps would be pretty sore on Tuesday so isolating them would be unthinkable.

    the reason i do it this way is because noi matter if i train shoulders then triceps the nxt day, shoulder work still uses triceps so its 6 of one rly!!

    plus i have a wide shoulder base, so my grip on bench press is usually wider, meaning emphasis is less on the triceps

    day one. hamstring calves and shoulder
    day two. back triceps
    day three. off
    day four. chest biceps
    day five. quads calves
    day six. maybe go clean up certain body parts you feel need alittle more improvement
    day seven. off

    then depending on how i feel i throw abs in when im not too tired

    ?? why would you say not to train back/ chest on same day? my current routine is..
    day1- back/chest
    day2- legs
    day 3 arms/shoulders
    day 4 off
    start over.. this is just what i am currently doing for the past 2 weeks and i will switch it in two more weeks.. but i am loving it. dont feel over trained and pumps have been unreal when working opposites
