anything more than 2x full body per week is excessive!!!!!!!!

I don't care what anyone says about a full body routine being a beginner routine. It's the hardest way you can train. Just brutal. When I do full body routines I long for split routines.

I feel like my body does better when I follow a split routine, training one muscle group a day. This give my aching bones and muscles a week to recover. So far, it has also kept me injury free.

I'm currently doing a weird mix:

FB PUSH - front squat / flat bench / behind the neck press
FB PULL - Romanian Deadlift / Yates Row / rear delt flies
PUSH - Incline bench / behind the neck press/ close grip press
PULL- Hang Cleans / chin ups/ Concentration curls
Legs- front squat / Romanian deadlift / lateral raises
OFF
REPEAT

I try to get through all 5 workouts on consecutive days but don't sweat a missed workout due to illness, time constraints etc. It's holding my interest - which is primary at this point in my lifting and my legs, upper back and delts in particular are responding to the high frequency.

I basically am doing three movements a day - one low(er) rep / high(er) intensity (4-5 working sets of 3's, 5's sometimes 8's) and then two going for volume (usually 5x10 @ around 50-60% !RM).

What a pathetic joke and even more pathetic reply.

Maybe.

Perhaps you're just a sad fag, though, yeah?

here's the stats so far

7x week - nobody unless i missed a respond
6x week - 5 getbiggers!
5x week - 9 getbiggers!
4x week - 6 getbiggers!
3x week - 8 getbiggers!
2x week - 1 getbigger!
1x week - no getbiggers!

its interesting how common it is to hit the gym 3-4 times a week and yet only train one musclegroup per week, one would think that people who are more often at the gym would be looking for working a muscle group at least twice per week.

so in theory, 1 person can be in the gym once a week and get as good or better result than someone who's at the gym 5-6 times in a week.

(not taking into account other reasons for going to the gym as for cardio or just enjoying it or prefering a split over fullbody etc i also feel there can be a benefit in lifting every day rather than once a week as there may be something to be said for having your body work every or every other day)

very true when I 1st started out I hit everything twice a week shorter workouts less sets but high intensity, after you build a good base each body part 1 a week is fine ...

60 years old. Train most days twice a day. Cardio in the morning, weights in the afternoon
If I get tired I take a day off and rest. I like to walk at the beach or at a nice pRk also.

The emphasis of your routine seems to be on arms. Why is this?

I split the body into three sections

 chest, back, delts, traps
 bis, tris, forearms
quads, hams, calves, lower back

depending on work issues that could be 3 on 1 off or 2 on 1 off 2 on 1 off (my favorite since rest between bodyparts changes)

if one's an older experienced natural lifter, then why train a muscle group directly more than once a week?

For many folks 'training' means sending Whatsapp messages and making selfies in between sets

here's a question that never been asked before on getbig, for those of you who goes to the gym, how often do you train?  Cool

When i was younger 4-5 times a week, nowadays it's mostly 7/365.

Anyone ever go from using heavy weight and low sets to moderate weight with more volume?
