Has anyone ever done Back n Shoulders together? If so how many exercises did you do?

Usually 5 exercises for back, totaling between 13-16 sets and 3 for shoulders, totaling 8-10 sets. -3X

Can you provide a example of what you mean?

Here's what I was thinking.....

Wide Pulldown
Seated Row
Barbell Row
One Arm Row

Shoulder Press
Side Lateral
Rear Delt Fly
Shrugs

I feel like something is missing like I'm not hitting enough

I would do chins, straight-arm cable push-downs, close-grip lat pulls, DB or seal rows, cable rows, lateral raises, bent shrugs, and either rear delt rows, raises, or face-pulls w/external rotation.

When doing shoulders and back together, I didn't personally do any direct pressing or anterior delt movements. They get hit plenty with a proper chest routine. -3X

Just my 2 cents, but if you're doing 3 rows already, I'd just not do shrugs. You should be hitting them enough already, and you can save your energy for something else.

^^ I find that rows do not adequately hit upper traps and levator scapulae. Just my opinion. -3X

I guess my question is. Is this a good idea too do? I know Lee Haney used that training split too and I believe Kai Greene does too.

There's no magic training split. There are pros and cons to almost anything you can come up with. What matters is consistency, hard, smart work, and adequate recovery. Back + shoulders can work out great. So can PPL, U/L, a conjugate method, full body, etc. -3X

What's too much?

What I think is that you're overthinking things and making life more difficult for yourself. -3X

Are you running it as back and shoulders, legs, chest and arms? Or another type of frequency??
