What do you guys think of an 4 day split such as:

1.Chest
2.Back
3.Legs
4.Shoulders

or

1.Chest
2.Back
3.Shoulders & Legs
4. Bi's & Tri's

Trying to change things up since I've a change in work schedule.

Probably 2 on 1 off 2 on 2 off

Actually days 3&4 should be switched on at least the first one with respect to the hamstrings, DL on Back day.

the second schedule could be like (2 on, 1 off, 1 on, 1 off, 1 on, 1 off)

Yet you get the general idea.

So do you rotate through the 3 days, like would you start the following week with back/bis on monday since you did chest/tris on thursday? Or do you just double up on chest and tris?

I dont continue the sequence. I double on chest and tris mondays are heavy weights after the 2 day rest and Thursday are burning days with high rep.

but im going to alternate soon. such as one week just dumbbells. and following just bar bell

I want to incorporate (tire flips, hammer strikes, parachute sprints, prowler runs, sled pulls/ tire pulls) along the way as well ...

Thanks for the input guys! Sparticus, I already do a few sets for reps of Incline Bench on shoulder day. Emphasis focusing on a particular area I feel is lacking it is coming along nicely now.

Georgia tha is more or less what I was thinking but flip flop the last two days to give hamstrings more "off" time.
Eating like a savage again instead of a rabbit want to get my DL # back up and moving!

My split goes chest, quads/squats, upper back, shoulders, back/hamstrings, 2 days off.

It works really good.
