    Normally on monday i do chest, shoulders and triceps in that order. Two days ago i skipped shoulders because of some pain and max. weights for triceps dropped couple of kg. So i'd say a shoulder workout shouldn't necessarily weaken your triceps. Mine recover while doing shoulders...

    i do chest delts and tris and find no problem whatsoever, it is a nice combo for me especially as there is a great crossover from all three to each other..

    It is only shoulder pressing excercises that will suffer (or ohp, military etc) if you do them after chest. Excercises intended to hit the lateral and posterior delts, such as side and bent over raises will not be affected as they do not involve triceps (nor do front raises which hit the anterior delts) - However some people argue that beginners should not be doing isolation excercises on shoulders.

    If I do OHP before bench my bench is not affected, however if I do bench first my OHP will not be as good - not sure why this is but give it a go. Make OHP your first excericse on shoulder/chest and tri day and see how you get on!

    I do chest and biceps one day and shoulders and triceps the other day. I've never heard of chest with shoulders combination. If it works for him then it's great.

    For some reason I don't see this combination working.

    The push day method is well known and surely works for many!

    Do your shoulders AFTER your chest.

    Your shoulders get a lot of secondary work from nearly all upper-body exercises - so leave their primary work after the Chest.

    To illustrate my point, here's my sequence of work for a week:

    Mo - Legs, Lower back;
    Tu - Upper Back;
    We - Chest
    Th - Shoulders
    Fr - Arms
