Maybe it's just me, but legs and shoulders are major bodyparts. I also have to say that if you are looking for mass/strength, I recommend hitting a push/pull in the same day. This way, your triceps/biceps are fresh to blast with maximum poundage. Doing triceps on a chest day, will have you more than likely doing a isolation exercise and leaving the gym. By doing your second muscles on a seperate day altogether, you actually work them more.
Chest-indirect triceps workout
shoulders-indirect triceps workout
Triceps-allows you maximum poundage
back-indirect biceps workout
biceps-allows you maximum poundage
Bearing this in mind:
day 7-either rest or day 1.
Personally, I prefer hitting each muscle on it's own day so I can give them the attention they need with enough recovery. Check out both my journals. I've done it both ways.
