As you know the options are endless, but here is a example very similar to what I do. I will keep it general, so you can select your own exercises. This is going to be an upper/lower split with 4 different workouts: Day 1 - lower 1 - Quad Dominant Quad Bilateral (Squat, Front squat, hack squat etc) ...

I think everyone has already taken something out of this discussion. I do not wish to drag it out too much longer, so some concluding comments: George, multiple sets are a proven thing. The one hour thing is also, at least for hypertrophy. Hence the splits. Alteenate the following two workouts and y...

I am 95% certain that the answer lies in your diet. Do you keep a food log? Tell us what a typical day or two might look like.

Hey Matt,

By now you know my love for splits :)

But I am curious. Why are biceps separate from back? It would make sense to me to sub biceps and traps.

I would like to challenge the notion that at a certain point in your training career you are suddenly byond full body workouts. You are never beyond full body workouts. At least consider that this is possible. This does not mean you should always be doing them. I also don't get arm days etc. The onl...

I used to do 3x full body, same workout. This was when I first started lifting and I stopped doing that after about 6-8 weeks. Since then I have done upper/lower, push/pull, and full body with 2 or 3 different workouts. Currently I am on an upper/lower split. This is George G. Forgot to add that I ...

I want to look strong and powerful and be strong and powerful. I want a 2.5xBW full squat. I want a 3xBW deadlift. I want a 2xBW bench. I ...

Just to clarify - nobody is arguing against splitting up your routine. It is the logic behind the split that I would like to focus on. For example a push/pull routine is split pased on the type of MOVEMENT you are performing. I understand that. But chest and legs on the same day? What is the rationa...

Body part splits. You sources of information.

First let me state that there is more than 1 way to train and get results. But I am entitled to my opinion and I disagree with some things. The main thing I disagree with is all the body part splits. I know what the basic rational is - you can exhaust your muscles more this way. The questions I have...

I think with any injury, you should stop doind things that aggrevate it. So if it hurts don't do it and work around it. If it doesn't go after a while see a doctor.

There is all that science that says it is better in the morning and it all makes sense.

But in the real world it does not seem to make a difference. Do it when it fits your schedule best. You are less likely to skip sessions, which will make a real difference.

Why do you need a machine to do hack squats. Just a barbell would do. Am I misunderstanding something?

Well, I have to disagree with Matt here. I think bodyweight is fine on an off day, just keep a lid on the volume. For example, pushups. It's much more of an endurance things, and I've found it really doesn't make inroads into recovery from benches. I do some form of them or P bar dips everyday. I c...

Just a few suggestions: 1) is there any reason that clean & front squat are always last on each day? 2) I would add deadlifts, but again you may have reasons for excluding them. 3) I think it would be beneficial to add a 'dynamic effort' day (google Westside Barbell or dynamic effort). Basically on ...
