The volume from the upper/lower schedule is based on a frequency of 2 times a week. Since you train everything once a week, you probably should increase volume a bit (or add a few extra exercises).

Since I'll be in the gym every day of the week most of the time, every body part should be hit twice in 5 days which seems to fit into most guidelines.

Monday: Chest & Back
Tuesday: Abs & Lower Back
Wednesday: Shoulders Biceps triceps
Thursday: Legs
Friday: Chest & Back
Saturday: Abs & Lower Back
Sunday: Shoulders Biceps triceps
Monday: Legs

Am I missing something?

Sorry, I think I'm wrong. When I see two exercises per muscle group, I always assume it belongs to a classic upper/lower routine. Once every 5 days may be okay. If you keep making progress, stick to it. You can always add a little more volume along the way.

Yeah, I got the every 5th day from this article: http://www.bodyrecomposition.com/mus...ss-gains.html/

I could potentially throw abs into one of the splits when I have the time. But it can't be leg day because that's my longest day.

Thanks for the feedback

If I wanted to switch to Split #2 is there any reason I can't move Triceps from Chest/Delt/Tri day to Back/Bicep day?

So from:
1 - Chest/Delt/Tri
2 - Legs/Abs
3 - Back/Bicep

To:
1 - Chest/Delt
2 - Legs/Abs
3 - Back/Bicep/Tricep

Sure, you could move them to back day and you won't die or anything. But the reason that triceps are paired with chest is because most chest exercises hit the triceps as well. Moving triceps to back day certainly won't be ideal for recovery.

Ok I think I'll keep it the same but move the abs to back and bicep day because that's a much shorter day than leg day.

Moving abs is fine but again... depending on what leg exercises you are doing, a lot of those put strain on the core, which is why abs are usually put on leg day.

Are you still using the same lift selection as your other post?

Since I use the machine for leg press instead of doing real squats, I'm not so worried about moving the abs. I think moving abs is less impactful than moving triceps.

Here are my splits

1 Chest/Delt/Tri - Flat Bench, Incline bench; Superset Rear Delt Raise & Lateral Raise; tricep cable pulldown
2 Legs: Superset Leg Press and Calf Raise; RDL; Split Squat;
3 Back Biceps: Superset Row & Cable Pulldown; Superset Bosu situp & Low Back Reverse situp; Bicep Curl
