Ok all. A buddy of mine is interested in doing a 2 day lifting split (he will also be doing two days or so of cardio). His goals are at this time VERY modest, namely, just general health and fitness - for him, muscle building and fat shredding are not priorities. He’s just trying to get into a little better shape. My hope is that at some point he’ll get into lifitng on a more hardcore basis but for now this is where he’s at.
My initial thought was a basic upper/lower body split. That said I guess he could also do a 3 day split (ABC) and just do it like so: A, B week 1. C, A week 2. B, C week 3. and so on. First question is, which of these approaches do people think are more viable?
Second question: If we go with an upper/lower split, does anyone have suggestions on what this should look like? I know some basics, like always include squats, bench, etc. But Im so into this now, I see all kinds of exercises that look “too important to leave out” haha. So its hard to pear it down to a reasonable length (I sincerely doubt he will want to be lifting more than 45min - 1hr in a given session).
Thanks in advance for the help.
