Were you supposed to train chest?
My triceps were often sore when I trained chest back in my old routine (which is like yours I think). At first I never trained but I figured I had to get used to it since they were often sore after my 30 second rest sessions. It went amazingly well. Just focus more on the chest than usual and your chest progress might just benefit from it. This is no time to chicken out on pain dude. You're in growth season and I excepct fucking hard core results.

yes, today is chest day.
i just think that you're not supposed to train chest when your triceps feels sore. maybe my body is not "ready" for split routine like this.

there would be another option: switch the order of my routine so my triceos can get enough rest. i was thinking about something like this:

mo: back
tu: chest
we: legs
th: shoulders
fr: arms

You work your triceps together with an agonist (shoulders) but your biceps you work out with an antagonist (your chest). It seems odd.

Isn't it better if you try something like this (this is what I'm doing plus a day of dips, chins):
Chest, triceps
Back, biceps
Legs
Shoulders

or kind of similar to yours

Shoulders
Legs
Back, triceps
Rest
Chest, biceps

Your current seems inconsistent, if you know what I mean.
Anyway you should def throw in some rotator cuff work in your routine no matter how it looks like.

this split is recommend at another bodybuilding forum i'm in..

i don't see the problem with working the triceps together with my shoulders since i don't use excercises for my shoulders that hit my triceps really hard. and i don't want to work my biceps together with my back cause my back day is just too exhausting. i think it's ok this way. i train the biggest parts of the body alone and combine the other in a way i'm still able to hit them really hard and independent from another.

and yeah, i still think about adding something like shrugs but i always had a strong trapezius/neck and didn't need an extra work out for it because i didn't want it to become too big compared to the rest.
