    Evan , I do agree with you. I am making some gains in the tricep area... And I would have to agree that I have a much better tricep workout when there fresh as opposed to same day as chest and shoulders

    Pretty much I'm curious as to this...would it be overkill if let's say I do chest shoulders and the next day kill it with triceps (along with back and bis). Assuming I do legs the following day and eithor just repeat it with no days off or take a rest day depending on how my body feels...
    When Ido triceps I like to do a lot more then bis bc it's lagging and bc it's the bigger muscle in the arms... So I will do all those pull downs along side close grip, dips, and or skull crushers...
    To much ? To little ? All advice is greatly appreciated
    Your over thinking it. If they hurt then skip em, if not hit em. I started doing bicep curls every day, and my biceps have responses tremendously. Just get your nutrition In, and a good nights sleep and go at it again. If your eating a surplus of calories, they are gonna grow if you keep breaking them down and feeding them.

    I would say ur chest and shoulders r receiving to much help from ur triceps. No harm in changing to tris first, then u will truly see how much ur other exercises for chest and shoulders rely on them. Need alittle more mind to muscle connection. My triceps would just be warmed up enough to then concentrate on them if I did them last. However everyone is different in their training as well as their level of developement.

    Without seeing u training in person it is hard to say anything.

    If u continue on as u r, i would put a rest day as I stated.
