    Does anyone Train Front delts with Chest instead of shoulders?

    Was just curious to know this since all the pressing you do really hits the front delts aswel. I was thinking of giving it a shot since my routine looks like this

    Monday: Legs
    Tuesday: Shoulders/Triceps
    Wednesday: Back/Traps
    Thursday: Off
    Friday: Chest/Biceps (would like to add front delts)

    Would you guys think it would be ok or no?

    There's no need to isolate front delts.
    They get more than enough work on incline chest movements and military presses or dumbbell shoulder presses.
    Emphasize better on side delts. They'll give you a better overall appearance.

    PS. Training 3 days in a row it's too much IMO. If you train 4 times a week It would look much better like this:

    day 1 - legs
    day 2 - delts
    day 3 - REST
    day 4 - back
    day 5 - chest
    days 6 & 7 - REST

    You can most certainly train your anterior fibers on Friday, while keeping the medial and rear head training strictly on Tuesday.
