  • HOME >> STRENGTH TRAINING >>SPLIT ROUTINES

      A split routine is when you work certain muscle groups one day and come back a day or two later and work the rest until you have completed each and every muscle group in a weeks time.

      Because you don't train each muscle group in one workout you can devote more energy into the muscles you are training on that day. This gives the proper amount of recovery time needed for your muscles to rest.

      This is how most people follow a weight training regimen. This gives an individual more motivation and energy to focus on the muscles they are training for that day . Knowing that they only have to train chest, biceps and abdominals will probably make them workout harder.

      There are several ways to you can split your routine up.

    Push/Pull method This split routine consists of training your pulling muscles (Back and Bicep muscles) on one day and your pushing muscles on the next (Chest and Tricep muscles). Train your legs, shoulders, and abdominals in between the other workout days. Not to exceed more than 4 workouts per week. If you need help or have any questions email info@fitsite.com and get set up on a program.

      Upper Body/Lower body This split routine consists of training your upper body one day and your lower body the next. Not to exceed more than 4 workouts per week.If you need help or have any questions email info@fitsite.com

      Large/Small This split routine consists of a 8 day period training your larger muscle groups(Legs, Chest, Back and Chest) on one day and your smaller muscle groups (Shoulders, Triceps, Biceps, Calves, Abdominals) on the other. This is considered a very big workout and a full 24 hours of rest in between workout days and no more than 2 exercises per muscle group. If you need help or have any questions email info@fitsite.com

      Whatever you decide to do. Make sure each muscle group gets a good 48 hours rest in between the next scheduled workout day for that muscle group. Weight training rips and breaks down the muscle and they need recovery time to prevent overtraining. Always remember to maintain strict form and work to total positive failure while doing your exercises.
