If right now you are BB Curling 85lbs for 8 reps, and 6 months from now you are curling 115lbs for 8 reps, it doesn’t matter if you hit arms once a week or twice a week during that time.
The only reason to increase the frequency of bodyparts hit to twice a week is if you think this will allow you to actually make faster strength gains (eg: if by training arms twice a week this has allowed you to instead be curling 135lbsx8 after 6 months)
Most people don’t do well with this idea for all of their bodyparts at once, however, so instead most bodybuilders opt to hit each muscle group hard and heavy once a week, and once they have built a solid foundation of size all over, they train any muscle groups they think are lagging or need to come out more twice a week.
Doing a 3-way split like what was recommended to you seems like a good idea right now, you just have to consider what exercises you are going to be doing and how this is going to affect the schedule.
For example, I would never do a leg day right after training my back because it would impair my ability to do deadlifts. But maybe that isn’t a problem for you? Figure it out (IN THE GYM).[/quote]
Ok so like the poster forbes said day one Chest & back, day 2 Legs, Day 3 Shoulder & arms. Day one is monday, 2 is wednesday, and 3 is friday, hopefully the fact that this plan uses the same frequency of workout and rest days as before wont hamper anything…i’ll keep my fingers crossed.
Anyway i have alot more questions to ask but i feel like i shouldnt ask you guys since i know it gets irritating, is there a program that works just like this so i can do more research on frequency, volume, and and all those things?
Here are some routines by CW, which one would be better suited for me.
