I usually incorporate chest and triceps together, back and biceps. I'm no expert, but I'm showing some decent results from it.

same here. I then randomly add the stomach or the shoulders to any of those days too.
I'm not into excessive training anymore, but that kind of work out seems good enough to me

yea the reason most people hit the back/bicep and chest/tricep combo is because most of the workouts for back or chest incorporate the bicep and tricep respectively as well. it doesn't mean that it won't also work out the other muscle but back/chest workouts usually compound with bicep/tricep.

just make sure you give your muscles proper rest & have a nutritious diet.

I personally wouldn't do a Back/chest and bicep/tricep-workout, because on one day you are not maxing your arms, they are used as supportive muscles, as vice versa.
So on a chest/bicep day you are doing a little of back and triceps too, just like the other way around on the second day.

Yea thats how i do mine also, Chest/Tri's, Back/Bi's, Shoulders/Tri's, Legs/Abs/Running! I usually just follow this 4 day workout plan everyweek. I find it more usefull that every other week i have the same routine and the weeks inbetween use different machines etc.

I do a different split... my days are:
Chest/Bi's
Back/Tri's
Shoulders/abs
Legs

I don't know if this is the "acceptable" way of doing the split, but I like working bi's and tri's when they are fresh and not fatigued from other exercises where they are the secondary muscle group worked.

This is EXACTLY the split I use. I've tried several different combinations over the years and I have found this split outline to be the best for me. I used to split Chest/Tri's, Back/Bi's but for the exact same reason you mention I changed it. After doing a huge chest workout my tri's were in no condition to be actually trained...there were already completely fatigued so I'd get a mediocre, light workout with poor form. Same issue when training back; my bi's would be spent...there was no way I could get a quality bi workout in. It seems to make sense with that split (push/pull muscles on the same day) but it didn't work for me. Now the only issue I have is working chest/bi's one day and then the next day working back/tri's...my bi's usually need a day in between to rest and recoup for a quality back workout (although I do use straps). Working shoulders the day after back/tri's hasn't affected my ability to hoist dumbbells/barbell over my head...it actually makes my shoulder workout stronger.

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

I usually split chest/tri's and back/bi's but recently I like to hit both bi's and tri's together. My arms get a better burn and they look freakin huge when both tri's and bi's are pumped up, so you gotta like that.

There are plenty of different split routines one could try, the important thing is to balance intensity with recovery.

I usually do chest/tri, shoulder/bi, back, legs all in separate days...

Recently I've changed it to chest/tri, back/bi, shoulder, legs in separate days...

QUESTION: It is better to change up routines every so often for muscle confusion? Does it matter changing up routines, or is it just important to change up the workouts, intensity, weight, etc...?

thats what i meant just worded it wrong after using the slashes so much... i meant it as in respectively to one another so it would have read back & bicep and chest & tricep for the last part
