I’ve been working with the split I’m about to describe for close to a year now. I’ve been getting great results with my diet plan (which has been very consistent regarding my macros).
That said, I just looked at my split and noticed I’m getting to the gym every day this week. . . that can’t be good, can it?
Day 1 Back
Day 2 Shoulders
Day 3 Chest
Day 4 Legs
Day 5 Back
Day 6 Shoulders
Day 7 Arms
Day 8 Rest
After the summer I started doing Back and Shoulders twice a week, or every four days. For the summer I did this with Shoulders and Legs. Is this too much frequency? Keep in mind, my workouts are never longer than an hour, and I usually try to hit a 45 minute mark. They’re quick, intense, and heavy. As such, I don’t too crazy volume in each workout. I train for performance and then leave.
My main question, however, is if I should combine my second Back and Shoulder workout as its own day. This would be sure to hit these body parts again a second time, but they can be abbreviated to fit both into one day. That might lesson some of the frequency and volume, if that’s an issue.
