I've been working my triceps on the same day as my chest. I used to do dips before bench press, but have changed them to after that so that my arms aren't fatigued for bench press. But now I'm having a hard time doing as many dips. Would it hurt to do dips on a different day than chest? I know dips work triceps and chest both, but I'd like to split the workout up more to get more out of it. I'm also doing overhead dumbell extensions for triceps. The problem is that my triceps are already too fatigued after working my chest to get much out of the workout, and I'm afraid to go back to doing dips before bench press since bench press is more of a compound exercise
, so it's obviously more important.
How would it be to do chest one day and triceps the next? I wouldn't actually be adding any more exercises in, I'd just be splitting them up more so I can get more out of them. If I do dips first, I can do weighted dips
with a backpack and weight plate, but when I bench first I struggle even doing non-weighted dips.
