So about me, I’m looking for a routine to run on my off-season of rugby in order to add shift my physique so I can come back bigger and hopefully leaner for the next season.
I’m 19 years old, play rugby, lifting for 1 year and a half. 186-188 lbs, 5’8.
I was looking into this routine because of my new school schedule I won’t be able to follow my bro-split that I was running for a while which was the following :
Back - one day.
Chest - one day.
Legs - one day.
Shoulders and arms - one day.
I’ve never really changed training routines since I started into 4 day splits so that’s why I’m asking because this 4 day split is not as effective as it used to be and I need to change that in order to achieve my goals you know.
In regards to the article linked above, 3 days a week seems plenty to me if done correctly and what I am interested in is the fact that those 3 days a week program kind of things target main muscles more than once a week so your muscle grows in cycles more often apparently.
I was thinking of running this or GVT and adding some cardio in the morning (never done cardio before other than rugby practices).
Any thoughts on what would be best for me ?
