hey everyone
its been a while since i posted on here
i have a question regarding grouping muscle workouts together....i have been workin out one muscle bodypart a day with cardio (cuz i wanted to drop fat off my body and its been workin) .... but ive been thinkin about grouping muscle parts together to change up my workout routine but at the same time drop the fat also..... now my question is WHICH MUSCLE GROUPS SHOULD I WORKOUT TOGETHER??? ive been hearing alot of things....chest and back, shoulders and tricepts, back and bicepts, back and shoulders, ect .... its been a while since i did two muscle a day (since i use to bodybuild myself)...but now im just tryin to get in on a strict diet (which i dont need to get into).....i was wondering if some of you guys can share some knowledge with me from experience........thank u

    The split I've used mainly over the years is:
    There are so many variations though.A popular one seems to be splitting your movements into a push day(chest/shoulders/tris),pull day(back/bis) and leg day.Theres plenty of routines to look at on this site.Best to try out a few and pick which works for you.

    Many variations can be used. you need to figure out how many days your going to train and then work it out so each muscle gets maximum rest. There would be no point in doing back/ trceps one day and chest/biceps the next as your tris will be tired an chest wont get worked as well.

    As cleg said the chest shoulder tri is probably the most popular as you get maximum rest for each muscle group.
    Mine currently is

    MON - Back

    TUES - Shoulders

    THURS - Legs

    FRI - Chest

    Biceps are worked seperately on shoulders day and if theres anything left tris get hit on chest day.

    I would strongly recommend...

    Day 1 -- Chest/Shoulders/Tri's
    Day 2 -- Back/Bi's
    Day 3 -- Legs

    You can add calves/abs on whatever days u feel are the easiest.

    If u want to try something a little different, the following routine is great (I'm on it right now):;jsessionid=EF1F7B9C6F75B683D9950ADE025354DB.hydra?id=693794
