Long time lurker and fan. I really enjoy the info provided on this forum.
Thinking about moving from full body to upper/lower split, as full body seems to be stalling out. Problem is my work schedule absolutely sucks for a "traditional" upper/lower split (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday). Full body has been good considering my best days are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
Given that, what about doing upper/lower on these days, alternating weekly (Monday - Upper, Wednesday - Lower, Friday - Upper, Monday - Lower, Wednesday - Upper, Friday - Lower, etc.)? I recognize that the rest time is increased one day per session, as the "traditional" mentioned before allows 2 and 3 day periods, to where this would be 3 and 4 day periods.
Would one extra day in between really matter? I would be doing some light cardio, GPP, etc. on Tuesday and Thursday, but my work literally has me in a different city on these days. My only other option is to get two gym memberships, but that just sucks thinking about it.
What do you all think? This doesn't sound bad to me, given it's still 2 upper and 2 lower sessions every 8 days. Some programs talk about a number of sessions per week, but does the body know that a week is 7 days? Sorry to sound stupid, but I'd like insight before wasting my time.
And if it matters, I'm 35, 6', and 184 lbs. Don't know my BF%. My goals are strength and a little more mass and then maintaining.
Thanks for your assistance.
