Curious when other people work thier triceps. I do them on chest day with shoulders. In the past I have dont them on the same day as biceps but like this routine better.


1. Chest Day
2. Shoulder Day
3. Triceps/Biceps Day
4. Other

I train tri's before back and bi's before chest and separate them with leg day.

barely do. My chest and shoulder routine is mostly pressing movements so they get plenty there... Maybe a couple sets of close grip bench at the end of shoulder day if they have some gas left in em.

Haven't hit tris exclusively in 3+ months. Between chest every 6 days and shoulders every 6 days, they have gotten plenty of work. I've added 3/4 of an inch to my arms in 3 months (on cycle) with absolutely no isolation work for them.

Day 1 : Vertical back
Day 2 : Chest
Day 3 : off
Day 4 : Horizontal back
Day 5 : Shoulders
Day 6 : Off
Day 7 : Repeat

No leg days due to knee surgery.

On my upper body days I'll hit Chest>Triceps>Delts>Back>Biceps

My routine is an upper/lower DE and ME split. I mix it up with skull crushers, overhead tricep extensions, pushdowns, pretty much something different every time.

I've tried the bi's and tri's together routine and hate it. After working one, I can't get a full contraction out of the other. For a juicy cycle I upped my training frequency so I can hit every group in 3 days, so chest, anterior delt, and tri's have been together; but soon I'll switch it back to where I was with tri's and shoulders together. I like legs and tri's together...if the gym isn't overcrowded with nut sucking fags trying to get a baby pump consuming the squat rack to knock out some bicep curls which inhibits supersets.

i like to hit mine with biceps. that leaves me with a 5 day split. if i need a break ill do mine after back. i get the best growth thraining them with biceps on there own day getting as much blood to the arm as possible.
