When you go to the fitness center next time take a look around you. The odds are that a lot of people are not doing full body workout. Most people at the fitness center are we doing partial routines. After you look around at yourself and notice other people, take a hard look at the routines that you were doing. You probably are doing the exact same thing. Unfortunately most weightlifters are doing this today. Obtaining the goal of more muscle and less fat becomes more difficult when split routines are used. Actually, two problems arise when they are used.
The only known effective way to build muscle mass and do it correctly as well as quickly as do a full body weight lifting program. You will be confident knowing that a full body workout routine will give you faster muscle buildup.
Utilizing split routines causes a second problem which is the length of time it takes to reach the goal. Since full body workout are the ideal way, it only makes sense that split routines do not give you the results in the same amount of time.
Doing split routines is a sign that, truthfully, the person has no idea how to properly gain weight and build muscle quickly. This leads to more work then it needs to be on each area. The weightlifter ends up doing the same amount of work to only touch on a smaller part of the body, thus, limiting the full effect of a workout. A split routine would require on the chest fifteen sets. If you did a full body workout, you would only need to do three sets.
You're almost guaranteed to have the problem of overlap if you utilize split routines. You could almost say that split routine causes overlap. A normal example of overlap can easily be found with an weight training magazines. Here is an example that you might find.
* Monday - Chest and Shoulders * Tuesday - Legs * Thursday - Arms (Biceps, Triceps and Forearms) * Friday - Back
On the surface and looks fine, but you need to look deeper. Why not work on your arms and focus on them one day and then the next? The truth is back training does not just work on the back alone. The biceps play a huge role. This can cause you to have overworked biceps. You could be depriving your back of the workout in really should be getting when you take your back the day after you take your arms. Since your biceps were worked heavy the day before, you are now working them heavy today which is why your back gets the short end of the stick.
Create a beneficial and effective routine that fits you. That can happen once you were able to wrap your mind around this concept. Most of the workouts during a split routine happen during the week. They take the entire weekend off then. This and explained here.
* Monday - Chest * Tuesday - Legs * Wednesday - Arms * Thursday - Back * Friday - Shoulders
Your biceps are worked very hard for two days in a row. Notice any other muscles getting over work during the week? When the chest is trained, when the back is trained, and on the day the shoulders are work on, the shoulders get intense workout. This routine is organized so that that back in the shoulders are worked on consecutive days. The way this routine is designed leaves no room for efficiency of maneuvering.
It's fairly obvious that many body parts overlap within the human body. You absolutely have to plan out a split routine carefully. You have to take your time. It would be oversimplification to take the body and just split it out evenly. There are some tips down below.
* The shoulders and the biceps play a huge role in back training. * As you workout on your chest, you are also working your triceps and your shoulders. * Overlap can easily occur when training the legs and the back. Your lower back muscles are very much involved in leg exercises such as squats or dead lifts.
Planning your split routine means that you really should keep these suggestions in front of you. Avoid overtraining of any part by giving the various parts time to rest and get repaired.
