I kicked off a new workout routine and it’s been killer. While I love a good total body workout, there’s something to be said about the effectiveness of the split routine.
For this training schedule, I opted to break things up as follows:
Day One: Biceps, Triceps, Shoulders
Day Two: Quads and Glutes
Day Three: Chest and Back
Day Four: Hamstrings and Ab/Adductors
Day Five: Total Body
For each day, I always include core and some form of cardio. The breakdown is roughly 30x10x20—30 minutes strength training, 10 minutes core, 20 minutes cardio.
On arm day, I break each segment up by muscle group and perform three exercises each. One at the most heaviest with 4 sets of 8 reps, the second with medium weight at 4 sets of 10 reps, and the third at the lightest weight at 4 sets of 12 reps.
Take a look:
After three core exercises- incline oblique lean downs, plank walkouts, bicycle crunches- I hope on the bike to spin it out for around 20+ minutes.
Give it a try! Check back next week for the next portion.
