Yes all beginners should train like pro bodybuilders.
Someone new to lifting should not waste as much time with isolation exercises and so much assistance work and the amount of volume PRO bodybuilders use.
Just because a pro bodybuilder has success with something doesn’t mean you will. The amount of volume they do 6 days a week will not work for most people BECAUSE they are chemically enhanced and genetically gifted.
Who is against body part splits? They are the most common way just about ANYONE trains, strongman and some power lifters even train on body part splits.
Also lol arnold didn’t just train with light weight. You think he build that much muscle training with light weight? Just because he used lighter weight with high reps-which was still heavy- AFTER he had a very solid base doesn’t mean he didn’t train heavy earlier in his career. [/quote]
Who has EVER, I mean EVER, suggested that a newbie should match the volume of a pro bodybuilder?
Can you provide even ONE example of someone suggesting that?
If not, kindly stop making up arguments that no one has made.
None of that changes the basic concepts. I train a little differently now than when I first started. I used to train 2-3 body parts a day as a beginner on a 5 day a week schedule. There was no avoidance of isolation exercises. there was no avoidance of ANYTHING and I grew just fine…just like millions of others.
