Upper/Lower question! Please Help!

  1. Upper/Lower question! Please Help!


    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?



    sorry I posted this another place, and relized it wasnt the right place!


  2. Don't forget that by working out upper/lower 2x per week, you should cut your per workout volume in half compared to the standard 1x per week BB split.

    Other than that, I see nothing wrong with working out every other day, if that's what it takes for you to be able to push hard the next workout.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Here it is, done 4x a week. Done, Monday, tuesday, thursday, and friday so, I have wednesday and weekends off. Im doing H drol while on this routine.




    Monday= Upper Heavy rep range 4-8

    Bench x3
    Dips x3
    Rows x4
    Shrugs x4
    BB curls x3


    Tuesday=Lower Hyper rep range 6-12

    Deads x3
    Lunges x4
    Calve Raises x3
    AB work


    Thursday=Upper Hyper rep range 6-12

    Incline DB x3
    Flies x3
    Upright rows x4
    Military x3
    Tri ext. x3
    Hammer Curls x3


    Friday=Lower Heavy rep range 4-8

    Squat x3

  4. Looks solid, though I would substitute the iso lifts w/ compound lifts. Like SLDLs for leg curls, close grip chins for curls, etc.

    awsome, will do some rearranging.

  6. Its not really, "if I can push hard" cause I could probably everyday, however, I thought your body needed a day off after a workout day to repair
