Full body workout 2 1/2 day per week

  1. Full body workout 2 1/2 day per week


    I plan to train 1 on 2 off with full body but wonder how many sets is appropriated to go for? 1 or 2 set per exercise?


  2. Depends entirely upon your training experience, the total number of movements you are performing, and the number of reps per set.

    In my full body routines my number of sets vary from 4-8 per movement (usually 6-8 lifts per workout), but I have been doing TBT for a while and have built up my recovery capacity to be able to handle such volume.

  3. if you're just starting total body, i would do 2 sets per muscle group trained - one compound exercise per muscle group. build your way up to 4 sets - this will take 3-4 weeks.
