Honestly, I never gave much thought to opposing muscle groups before I started visiting this sight, although my efforts to look propotional prevented me from developing any serious imbalances.

Once I get my squat back up to where it should be, I want to start substituting standard deadlifts for squats about once a month. I think improving my squat will be the key to improving my deadlift, since the starting point (mostly glutes) is the weakpoint of my deadlift. Once the bar passes about mid-shin the hamstrings can take over (for the most part), and the lift gets much easier (for me at least).

I'm thinking of moving chest and triceps back to Mondays and Delts and Traps back to Thursdays. This way I won't be training rear delts the day before back. Meanwhile, I don't think training traps before legs will be a problem, since I've done it before.

In other words I'm thinking of going from this:

Mon = delts, traps, abs/obliques
Tue = back, biceps, forearms
Wed = rest
Thu = chest, triceps, abs/obliques
Fri = quads, hamstrings, calves
Sat = rest
Sun = rest

Back to this:

Mon = chest, triceps, abs/obliques
Tue = back, biceps, forearms
Wed = rest
Thu = delts, traps, abs/obliques
Fri = quads, hamstrings, calves
Sat = rest
Sun = rest
