Hello. As of now I weight train about 3 days a week for about 1.5-2.5
hours a day at a fairly high intensity. My reps are usually within the
2-6 range on most of my exercises, and I use basic exercises and
variations exclusively. I realize this time frame is probably too long
to lift at the above intensity. So my thought was to break up one
training session in a day into two training sessions in a day. But
here’s my problem-I don’t train like a bodybuilder. I train more like a
powerlifter or strength athlete. Therefore, a split like Chest in the
morning and back at night work for me since I include full body
exercises and don’t mentally isolate bodyparts while I’m lifting. What
I was thinking of was still doing a training split, but have both
sessions focus on similar muscle groups. Here’s an example.
What do you guys think of something like this? Will it totally mess up
my recovery, or will it be better than doing these all in the same day?
Any thoughts will be appreciated.
