Bodybuilding Split Workout Routines
When you first start working out you should do whole body workouts 3 days a week, such as Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
As a beginners you will make fast gains in muscle size and strength working your full body every workout.
But as you progress by gaining strength and endurance to add more exercises for each body part, working the whole body every becomes too long and too tiring. So when you get to the intermediate level you need to do split training.
Here are some of the best bodybuilding split workouts I have ever used:
Lower Body Upper Body Split Routine - Do your lower body one day and your upper body the next day.
Push Pull Workout Split - Work all pushing exercises like bench press, squats, triceps extensions, etc. on one day and all pulling exercises like rows, chin ups, curls, etc. on different day.
Every Other Day Training Split - Work half of your body one, take a day off for rest, then work the other half of your body, and take another day rest day, etc.
Three Way Split Workout - Splitting your body into three different workouts, for example 1) chest and back 2) thighs, hamstrings and calves 3) shoulders, biceps and triceps - working each body part once or twice a week (3 or 6 workouts a week).
One Bodypart Per Day Routine - Work only one muscle group each with a high volume of sets, such as back on Monday, chest on Tuesday, arms on Wednesday, legs on Thursday and shoulders on Friday.
