    Question Thoughts on this split (twice a week)


    Just curious what everyone think of this split. A guy I occasionally lift with wants me to jump into this with him. I have never really lifted 5 times a week. Im not sure about his set/rep scheme yet but I believe its similar to HST (obviously not full body workouts).

    Here it is:

    Mon: bi's/tri's
    Tues: shoulders/traps
    Wed: Legs
    Thur: back/bi's
    Fri: chest/tris
    Saturday: off
    Sunday: off

    I am looking to improve arm size so I'm a bit curious about training them 2x/week. Currently I am bulking. :burg:

    Looks good. I'm guessing on mon your hitting the bi's tri's hard. Then thurs and fri its high rep work for them right? 2 times a week works probably be comparalbe to once a week for size gains. I also feel that 2 times a week is superior to once a week for strenght gains. Of coarse it depends on training volume and intensity. I'd say give it a try.

    I think that'd be good if your bulking and eating a good amount of clean cals. Just make sure to get enough sleep too. I dont know abuot hitting them 1st during the week. I never liked doing that Maybe push arms to friday and hit somthing like this

    Mon: Chest/tris
    Tue: Back/bis
    Wed: Legs
    Thur: Shoulders/traps
    Fri: Bi's/Tri's
    Sat & Sun: OFF

    JMO. I may be hitting chest twice a week to work on that area, I'll keep checking in with you to see how your arms are doing as my bi's are my next weak link.

    I am not real sure on that but I do know he doesn't hit the bi's/tri's as hard on his chest and back days.

    Yeah I'll try to keep this updated. I will be "assisted" supplement wise in the next couple of weeks. It will be a log so I'll just try to remember to link it up.
