So I have always been an athlete, I am in good shape. I am 27 year old, 5’ 8" and around 170 pounds. I have really enjoyed learning to weight lift in the last year, I had a bad back (lower back) and deadlifting strengthened and fixed me, back pain and spasm free for 2 years now, no chiro or massage could do that.
So I my big question is, if I wanted to really focus on seeing some strength and physique gains, what is the best method? Do I do individual muscle groups each day, say for example, back on monday, chest on tuesday, legs wednesday, arms thursday, core friday?
Or is it better to combine some and do something like upper body one day, lower body the next, rest and repeat?
Or, is it better to to a full body workout every other day?
I have seen good results by doing the full body thing, but I am new, so probably anythig would give me results. Also, I am not sure about the full body for real substantial gains, because I don’t really get to hit each group really hard from all angles so to speak.
Any help out there?
