I’m planning on hitting the gym 3xwk because of my schedule. I’m debating a couple of options and would love to hear your guys opinion on this.
the following week would be reversed so everything gets hit 3 times in 2 wks. The idea with this split is that a muscle gets hit directly once every 5 days but indirectly on the other workout days as things like pullups, chins, dips ect hit the arms and the torso. This seems similar to Waterburys High Frequency Training and might be a good break in program to his programs
as above the following split is reversed the following wk. This split allows for more recovery and is alittle more of a traditional split.
What are your guys thoughts? Would the first split lead overtraining because of the overlap? Is the second split not frequent enough to elicit gains? As for sets/reps the first split would probably see slightly lower volume because of the overlap 6-8 sets per bodypart. The second split would use somewhat higher volume. Legs are getting hit as well but just simplifying the question to upper body. thanks in advance guys.
