Yep. If I do them the next day with back and biceps, the tris are sore and will get overworked when doing military presses. My tris need to re-coup and working them the next day is counter-productive.

 

I only have a 3 day split and one of those is leg work. After a leg workout, I've no energy to do anything let alone shoulders.

 

So, I do it how I do it.

Honestly and truthfully with no sarcasm intended, my idea of working out is a good cigar and a drink of some sort. It doesn't affect my playing much, depending on the drink and how much I consume.

My playing used to get horrible after drinking too much alcohol.

 

Don't have that problem anymore. I rarely drink.

:D I don't hit my legs quite as hard...and do legs and shoulders on the same day. I can't do too vigorous a leg workout. My knees are bad (especially my right knee after surgery a couple years ago). Can only do partial squats...but it's better than nothing I guess. Sucks getting old.

I remember lifting weights 10-15 years ago sure made loading in and out after gigs more bearable. But its hard to do anything for 3 hours after a good workout. I really need to get back into it. I still exersize but weight training is just so painfull, and I'm a wimp.
