Maintenance workout- great for people with hectic schedules-tell me what you think
I am starting a new job soon where my time is going to be taken up. After doing a ton of research and using years of experience in the gym, I came up with this split to accomodate my schedule. I feel this is a great split for anyone who only has moderate amounts of time and wants to stay lean(or get lean for the most part). It is more of a hypertrophy orientated workout. You may gain strength, but the focus is maintaining muscle and leanness.
