Good split for consecutive days training?

Just wondering what peoples thoughts are

Some weeks I might be able to get to the gym on 3 or 4 consecutive days ie  Mon, Tues and Wednesday then maybe a Saturday, but it won't be the same days each week.

Would the below be the best split to give muscle groups enough rest (thinking about triceps etc)

Chest and Tri

Back and Bi

Cardio and abs

Legs and Shoulders

    could maybe do upper/lower split, pretty good way to go imo, or as above push/pull/legs.
    Doesnt matter too much though really, think your idea is fine anyway

    monday - chest and triceps
    tuesday - back and biceps
    wednesday - legs
    thursday - shoulders and triceps

    I sometimes do:

    day 1 - shoulders and triceps
    day 2 - legs and biceps
    day 3 - chest
    day 4 - back and traps

    Bench - 150kg
    Deadlift - 210kg
    Squat - 160kg

    Total= 520kg @ 92kg

    Due to work I've been in a similar position recently, where I've not been able to do my preferred fullbody routine on Mon-Wed-Fri.

    I've found an upper/lower split to be pretty good, though I make sure I don't train to failure due to short recovery time.
