Default Can you train shoulders a day after chest?

I have always found it hard to separate chest and shoulders by more than one day and I was just wondering couldn't u just do shoulders the day following a chest workout?

Generally, your tricep and shoulder are used in both chest and shoulder day. Hence, you would be hitting the same muscles two days in a row.

Try a different split that allows more time between shoulders and chest or does them the same day. Here

I'm new here and as you can see I don't have a lot of posts and here's what I think: Give your shoulders at least a 48 hour gap before you train them again.

I just trained shoulders today after chest and triceps yesterday. I wasn't lacking power and my workout was intense. I will work legs tomorrow, take Monday off and will not work my chest again until Thursday. I think it is fine as long as you have adequate rest time afterwards for recovery.
2 Cor 7:1 Since we have these promises, dear friends, let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit, perfecting holiness out of reverence for God.

Remember their is no such thing as over-training just under-recovery. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] So, it is all about active recovery.

I train shoulders either the day after chest or at most 2 days after. Never been a problem for me at all. But, I do chest clafs and abs on that split then shoulders and triceps for the other split. So my triceps aren't sore when I do shoulders. I find the right superset combo can really isolate the chest or shoulders without tiring the triceps too much. Really, all that should be "tired" when you go to shoulders after chest is the front delts.
