    Question Looking for new training split

    I have been doing one muscle a day since june. I feel as though it is time to switch it up a bit. Does anybody know of a good training split that I can try? just looking for some new ideas, thanks

    waaaaaahh...

    seriously, though...i think you forgot the little piece of the puzzle called "rest"! but in college, we did ridiculous training programs too with little regard to recovery so i will let it slide this time.

    primo, there's THREE off days there! how much rest do you need? that split is necessary to make the Empire State Games (NY's Competitions) i didn't give a shit about baseball, it just payed for school.

    Mine is similar to Danes, however I cannot put legs with anything else so it looks like this

    day 1 pecs/delts/tric's
    day 2 lats/bic's
    day 3 off
    day 4 quads/hams
    day 5 repeat day one
    day 6 rest
    day 7 rest
    follow the next week where you left off which would be dayt 2's wkout.

    This way everyweek something gets worked twice but it's not the same. I train calves 2 x wk no specific day.

    i'm talking quality rest...plus i see no reason ever to take off 2 days in a row completely...you have seven days to work with...not 5. There are no "weekends" in bodybuilding.

    Training split referred to WEIGHTS and not cardio. You wouldn't need to do weights more than 4 days, unless you are on gear and even then. So yes I'd like your opinion on what you consider

    "quality rest"

    and

    how many days we need to be training since you

    "see no reason ever to take off 2 days in a row completely"

    And oh yes...there are weekends in bodybuilding.

    excuse me i am all too aware of what a training split refers too, thank you very much

    if you're going to do each bp once/week (which most people on here say they do) i am saying use all 7 days to get those in...not just 5 then eat crap all weekend and lay on the couch and do nothing

    i.e.

    chest
    back
    legs
    arms
    off
    shoulders
    off

    or something to that effect

    don't know why you jumped all over that but oh, well

    Hey...are you refering to me again??!! That was one time when I was hungover...give it a rest!!

    Seriously, I like Primos idea of one body part a day...it gives you a chance to really focus on each movement for that muscle group. However I don't have the luxury of going to tyhe gym whenever I want so, for me it is neccesary to train mon-on, tue-on, wed-on, thur-off, fri-off, sat-on, sun- off. I make due and if I can train on one of those off days I'll adjust my program to suit. Remember...we're exchanging our individual routines and what works for one may not work for another. Most of us have reached a level of experience that we can know what works and expirement with variations.

    My apology Primo I did not mean to come across jumping on you. Here is what I mean

    Point 1: Just because most of us train during the 5 weekdays does not mean we "sit around all weekend" I for one spend my time playing softball, soccer with my daughter, baseball with my son, and I have a mountain trail that runs through the woods on my property. HARDLY on the couch eating pototoe chips.

    Point 2: Go back and read through this post and you'll find that most of us DON'T train each body part 1x per week.

    I personally would not waste my time going to the gym just to train shoulders or any singular bodypart except legs as a whole. Between the time to prepare, drive, train and shower there's a lot of wasted time. But hey that's me...

    I guess it is just about priorities and the time you are willing to dedicate (give up) to it. You have a family so we are obviously going to put a much different emphasis on certain things that we do...which is the way it should be anyway.

    Shoulders are just as important as any other body part so, to me, it is not a waste of time to do them at a time when i think it will give me the best results...then again, if i had a mountain trail running through the woods of my property....heck if i had property...things might be a little different.

    When I was single and competing in the early 80's I would meet my training partners at the at 11:00pm and then eat midnght chow (Air Force days). Those were awsome times.


    Primo nothing but respect 4 U. Know that!

    You had better respect her DB101...she's gonna smoke your ass in posts in a matter of days However she has an Ace in the hole. She answers a lot of questions in the female forum as well...I know this because Roberta boots my fat ass away from the computer when she gets home from work and logs on to the female forum. Once again Primo...little reminder, don't say bad things about Petey on the female forum. DB101, on the other hand, is fair game j/k DB

    for the record...my post count can stay at 1 for the duration of the time i am here and i could care less

    it's nice to see IF people have personalities other than "can i drink winny" and "what should my first cycle be"

    to respond to the original question primo had about rest....i've never ever claimed to be a bodybuilder. you can tell that from my pics. i was a powerlifter in college, and now i do a combo of lifting for power, strength and size. i'm not concerned with abs at all. if they come, they come. i needed two days off. i still do, i just don't take them back to back anymore
