    Chest workout midday, Shoulder workout evening?

    Hi all!

    Not sure if this is the right place for this question. But I'm wondering... How long after a workout does the muscle start to repair? For example...

    Can I train shoulders at my work gym at around 12:00pm and then train chest at my home gym at around 6/7pm? or do you have to do the two muscle groups together?

    Thanks In advance!

    -Ryan

    It actually takes weeks for full tissue remodelling to take place.

    Fortunately you can - and should - train before this has completed.

    It's not so much about the timing of training bodyparts, more about the total amount of workload you do over time.

    This is good news because it means you don't have to agonise over how to structure your "split" (I don't use a split at all). You can simply decide to train a muscle if it feels ready to train and you are likely to put up a good performance. If bench feels like crap because your front delts (which are heavily used in benching) are fried from earlier then perhaps you aren't going to have a great session.

    There is nothing to say you have to train related muscles together, there is no notion of a minimum volume per session - or if there is, it is very low. In fact many people find that training related muscles in the same session is not so productive since the later sets are all done from a position of being fatigued. If you spread the workload out into 2 or 3 sessions through the week, more of your sets will be done from fresh.
