Ordering of workout

Hey i was wondering, for example if i was to do chest, shoulders and back in a workout one day (not that i would do that but anyway). Is it best to go, chest1, shoulders1, back1, chest2, shoulders2, back2 etc. OR doing chest1, chest2, chest3, shoulders1, shoulders2, shoulders3, back1, back2, back3???

    The back is a bigger muslce than the chest. I would do back, chest, shoulders. Or if your doing it twice a week, you could switch back and chest as the first muscle worked every workout.

    I prefer doing back after chest - I find that rowing and deadlifts use up a lot of energy; lats are also a support muscle when you're benching - so it makes sense to warm them up a little rather than exhaust them before moving to chest.

    best to keep seperate the big muscles for a different day. example, do chest and tri on one day, then back and bicep two days after

    Hazard a touch of narcissism without shame.
