    The first work-out looks more "sports-specific" while the second is more oriented towards bodybuilding. Since your training for track events, a more sports-specific workout would be more benificial, imo. I think there are better rountines than the one that was prescibed by the coach. But first, what event/s do you participate in?

    Both. the key to effective training is to change the stimulus regularly(4-8 weeks I usually aim for).

    Changing splits is a sure fire way to change the stimulus.

    I for example the past 6 weeks was on a split that looked likk this

    Wed: arms + shoulders

    Sat back + posterior chain

    Sun Chest + quads

    Now my split looks liek this

    tues: upper

    Thurs : lower

    sat: upper

    sun lower/explosive
