What are your thoughts on training chest and back together in the same day? Personally, I did it and I am quiet impressed with the results!

I did this:

A1) Incline bench presses
A2) Wide Grip Pull-ups

B1) Flat bench barbell presses
B2) Alternate, behind the back and to the chest wide grip pull-downs

C1) Incline dumbbell flyes
C2) Barbell rows with shoulder wide underhand grip

D1) Bodyweight dips
D2) Close grip cable rows

I did 5-6 sets on each exercise and reps ranged mostly from 4-20 (pyramid)

For me it's high volume that works the best but i think anyone can plan a workout according to his own needs.

Hey Rein,

I tried training back and chest together, once before, but it's just no good, and way to much in one day. My workouts are already intense, and there is no way I end up with enough energy to knock out both of those large muscle groups in one shot in an hour. While it might work for you. I still find the best method is training 1 body part every week, then each has ample time to heal. Then I can flood my body with nutrients as well.

I'm with TH...move a lotta iron on those two days. I don't think I could combine the two and be productive.

I do upper body days and lower body days so I do back and Chest together and I've had really good gains. I tried the one body part a day routine before and it didn't work for me. Everyone is different though.
