Can you use the growth factor template for whole body sessions?
I am currently using a whole body routine because I have a holiday in a month and in the past whole body workouts have had the most visual impact on my physique.
This is my plan: 2 workouts to switch back and forth. Training 2 days on, 1 day off. 5 days training a week.
Workout A: Strength (double progression method)
SGHP - 3x5
TB Deadlift - 3x5
Seated Military press - 3x5
Floor press - 4x5
Heavy Frames walk (30 secs work, 90 secs rest) - 4 sets
Workout B: Growth factor (3 sets) OR pump work(3 x 15-20 reps for each)
Upper body pull - pump work or GF
Upper body horizontal push - pump work or GF
Shoulders (Side delts and rear delts only)- pump work or GF
Lower body - pump work or GF
The reason I have set it up like this is to utilise your double stimulation method, but like I said I want to train whole body workouts as this is what has worked for me in the past.
My question is:
1) Can I use GF templates for the whole body on a workout like this if it is only 3 sets per muscle group/movement pattern or I this overkill?
2) Would I be better off using normal sets of pump work on the second day?
3) is there anything else you can spot that would be a problem?
Thanks for any help you can give me. It would be very much appreciated.
