Default Intensifying the stimuli

Oke, I'm gonna have a lot of free time the next couple of months. I'm planning to do a short super intense workout routine with no complete rest days, only rests for specific muscle groups. It basically looks like this:

day 1: back, neck, biceps, legs
day 2, chest, shoulders, triceps, stomach
day 3: repeat day 1
day 4: repeat day 2
and so on..... no rest days

Has anyone here applied this kinda of routine? Thought/comments also welcome ofcourse.

Only recommenation would be to build up into it. For example, if you are currently used to taking a day off every 3 days than make it a day off every 5 days, than 7. And build up the sets as well, if you typically do 15 sets for back, twice a week and now you are doing it 3 times per week (every other day), then try 10 sets to start so the volume would essentially be equal (30 vs. 30) and build back up to 15 sets per workout so you are doing more (45 vs. 30).

Thanks again. I tried having no rest days. It's nearly impossible. Just did what felt right and it now comes down to 4 days in a row training, 1 rest day, 4 days training etc. My days off are much more rewarding now
