So I have been reading a number of routines on this site for me. Like everyone I want to lose fat and gain mass.
My question is about the kind of routines posted here. I’ve noticed several have some type of concentrated split where on each day, you might do 3-4 sets of 8-12 reps and each day is highly focused on a group of muscles. something like:
chest/tri one day
back/bi one day
legs one day
my question is…why dont we really see full body workouts for every training day? something where on each day you might do 1 set of 8-12 reps (to your max) for every muscle 3-4x per week.
so in one day you would do bench, squat, rows, pull ups, leg curl, leg ext, military press, curls to get a full body workout and you would only do 1 set of each exercise to your MAX (that you could put up 8-12 times). seems like the intensity is there and with just 1 set, you get plenty of rest.
by doing this 3-4 days a week you are still putting up the same amount of total reps as you would in the other concentrated routines but with the added rest between reps, wouldnt you likely gain strength at a faster rate?
is something wrong with this plan? is it inefficient or something? wondering why its not really in many articles.
