    help with UPPER/LOWER question!!!


    Ok, so I have heard people do a 4 day a week scheduele like this:

    Monday=upper
    tuesday=lower
    wednesday=OFF
    thursday=upper
    friday=lower
    sat=OFF
    sun=OFF


    However, for me it seems like to much if I workout 2 days in a row. I have also heard its good to take a day off, after a day of training. Dont know it this it true? SO, I was thinking what if you just went everyother day with the Upper/Lower priciple. ex:

    Monday=upper
    tuesday=OFF
    wednesday=lower
    thursaday=OFF
    friday=upper
    saturday=OFF
    sunday=lower

    Monday=OFF
    tuesday=upper
    wednesday=OFF
    thursday=lower
    friday=off
    saturday=Upper


    basically going upper/lower everyother day so you get a day of rest everyworkout? Anyone done this? Is it a good idea?

    I use power/hypertrophy because i like the idea of different rep ranges on different days. Looks something like this
    Mon- Upper Power
    Tues- Lower Power
    Wed- off
    THurs- Chest/back hypertrophy
    Fri Legs hypertrophy
    Sat- Shoulders and arms hypertrophy

    If your body requires more rest between workouts, than you are smart to take more days off.
