How many days a week do you lift weights?
Usually ends up being three. 1on1off-1on1off-1on1off-2off repeat
4 day split here
Sun - Chest/Tris/Abs
Mon - Legs
Wed - Delts/Bi's/Abs
Fri - Back/Abs
Cardio each w/o day. I know you really wanted my split routine. Who can blame ya?
Six on One off been doing this for 10 years have made alot of gains but it should be what ever you feel good with.
I've been doing
Day 1: Chest/Back Width/Delts/Back Thickness/Tris
Day 2: Bis/Calves/Forearms
Day 3: Rest
Day 4: Quads/Hams/Abs
Day 5: Rest
I end up with at least 4, usually 5, sessions per week. I'm sure I could get away with less, but I absolutely love going to the gym, and would probably physically assault students w/o the proper outlet to vent my frustration. I end up being an extremely patient teacher
The above split is my tweak to DC training. I only do one exercise per bodypart each workout, but hit everything 3 times using different exercised over the course of 15 days. Me gusta mucho
3 on 1 off. Push-Legs-Pull-Rest repeat.
6 on 1 off, my body just likes high volume
Tues: Legs/Lower Back
DC like program. Rotate between 2 on 1 off and 1 on 1 off. Basically either 4 or 5 days ew, not including cardio sessions.
Only 1-2 days for me. It's all I can afford right now. Hit only major bodyparts, no arms, abs, neck, other little ****... Go to failure, 6-9 sets. Works for me for now...
Do you pay per time for your workouts? Why not get a monthly membership instead (if you dont have it already).Originally Posted by DmitryWI
Im in the gym 5days a week, other than that can't really say my workouts (Im training with a clown right now).
Usually 5 days a week,
Monday chest + cardio
Tuesday bi's & tri's + cardio
Thursday shoulders + cardio
Friday back + cardio
Sunday izza: :hot: :burg: hehehe
Oh, I didn't mean I can't afford moneywise, I'm friends with owner and have 24/7 access and most of the time I'm the only one in the gym, kind of nice. But I'm too busy/tired to workout more often.Originally Posted by snakebyte05

2 days on 1 day off
Day1 - Legs
Day2 - Chest
Day3 - Shoulders/Abs
Day4 - Off
Day5 - Back
Day6 - Arms/Abs
Day7 - Off
Sometimes I do 3 days on 2 days off
Day1 - Legs/Abs
Day2 - Chest/Shoulders
Day3 - Back/Arms
Day4 - Off
Day5 - Off
Bis/ Back/Lower back/ Abs (biceps before back is insane but the idea is that once you get to Back- you use your Back muscles rather than your arms to move the weight)
I don't do cardio because it kills my size and strength. I reach a fat burning BP during my weight training. I am still not sold on not doing cardio but I have shredded down to 11% BF from 19% in January.
Out of curiosity, how bad is it for you to lift 7 days a week? If diet is spot on, split is chest, back, shoulders, hams, quads, bi's, tri's(not in this particular order) and roughly 6-8 hours of sleep a night. I have always been able to handle high volume and or frequency, but i really am not trying to fry the cns.
I am also working at lowes in the lumber department...biceps and front delts are worked a bit there.
