Looks pretty good to me. Of course what exercises you're doing within this split will make the difference too!Originally Posted by German_Joe
lets see if i understood, this is based on:
moving great weights on basic exercices
NOT hammering or exausting any muscle
and touching same muscle 2-3 times a day depending on how you feel
and what about going to failure? never? last serie?
and how many repetitions? didnt saw it or i skipped it :(
next routine will be this or upperbody/lowerbody for sure thx rocky
To failure or not is a hard one. There are no absolute awnsers on that. Imo it can be done but not every workout. Use it once in a while. In other sessions try to avoid it and stay 1 or 2 reps away from it.Originally Posted by deathmaggot
For the reps i would go 5-8 reps or 10-12 (or even12-15). You can used both in a session or split a heavy/low rep day with more reps/less heavy day. You could also work with periodization.
Um 2-3 times a week not a day. If your doing multiple sessions a day I hope that you are a full time athlete with nothing else to do, or have help from a friendly Mexican pharmacist.Quote
Repitions is based on what muscle quality you are trying to exercise. So whatever.
To failure has the increased likelyhood of DOMS, which will make training that muscle again that week hard. But this also depends on the definition. Cummulative fatigue can have you fail a rep and be well short of really reaching muscular failure. I personally prefer to keep failure out of the training as much as possible. Research done (mainly by HIT jedi) has shown no benefit of multi sets all done to failure. So if you want to get appropriate volume it is best that the sets be shy of failure, until the last one for that muscle (and even then its not a great idea).
thank you both
yes i typed 3-4 times a days instead 3-4 times a week sorry
well, considering my history, i think the more radical change would be:
3 days per week fullbody, 4 sets 6-8 reps NO failure, and starting with arms and doing only basic exercices
then, after 2 months take more decisions like increase the reps or ...
thanks again mates
Jep because of the recovery time you need to cut some volume so instead of doing 4 sets use 2-3 sets but still use heavy weights. Dont train less frequent. Frequency is one of the key facors for hypertrophy. The lowest you could go is hitting the muscle ever 5th day.Originally Posted by intraining87
Reg park used steroids and Steeve reeves
Testosterone was first synthesised in 1935 by the team of Butenandt and Ruzicka (1935 Nobel Prize for Chemistry).
Serriously it was legal back then?
Everyone thinks Arnold brought them in but the truth is people used them. Even the so called "naturals" who claim they did not. (They are the same as Gustavo all NATURAL )
Don't believe me look at Bil Pearls oppinions of Reeves and Parks. Natural my ass
