    What training split do you use?


    I currently Do full body workouts, and I'm looking to change things up.

    I have heard of the three day split (push/pull/legs) and the lower/upper body split.

    Are there any others? What are you currently using/recommend?

    Saw huge gains in strength and size while using this program. All day fullness felt like a constant flex.

    its westside spread over a longer period of time. i was lifting 4 days a week or at least trying but i found i kept missing a workout. with just 3 days a week its much easier to miss a day and do it the next day or 2 and i can get back on track in a week or so with my normal lifting days. much easier on the constitution. add in at my age i know i just dont recover as fast and i slack off on conditioning i feel much better overall.
