What do you think? Let me tell you how I came to this decision. I was training fairly heavy at the time and using a straight six schedule, which means I trained six days in a row with only one day of rest a week.
That was the only way I knew how to train, but the pain in my shoulders became so severe at one point that I could barely lift an empty Olympic bar to perform shoulder presses.
This meant that each bodypart had three days to recuperate, rather than the two I was giving them. Plus, these trainers would pair a pushing bodypart with a pulling one, rather than train two of the same type in sequence. They did this to alleviate some of the stress that the shoulder and elbow joints receive during the natural course of weightlifting. I soon realized that the way I was training was putting my joints through the wringer.
By pairing chest with shoulders and back with biceps, I was overloading my joints. I knew then it was time for a change; otherwise, I risked significantly cutting down the length of my bodybuilding career. On day one, pair chest with triceps, which are two pushing bodyparts. I realize that not everyone is able to train twice a day as I did, which is fine.
Remember, your bodybuilding career will last only as long as your joints hold out. Therefore, do all you can to protect them now.
Pairing pushing and pulling bodyparts is a great preventive measure, not to mention one that will ensure maximum muscle growth, as well.
