Let’s talk training splits and what’s most ideal for muscle and fat loss as I have tried so many. I always read in bodybuilding magazines when I was young that it was best to follow a typical training split  like the below:

Monday – Chest
Tuesday – Back
Wednesday – Legs
Thursday – Shoulders
Friday – Arms


Or something similar anyway.

Now you will notice with this approach we are only hitting each muscle ONCE per week. What I have learnt in my 15+ years of training is that this isn’t the best. We want to be hitting and targeting the muscle as frequent as we can BUT still allowing the body to rest and recover in order to grow.

So, instead of beating up each muscle once a week hard like the above approach we should aim to just beat it up a little twice a week this way we double the frequency and times we break the muscle down over the course of the year ensuring maximum growth and results. So, we are basically training each muscle double the amount over the course of the year.

An example of this and what I mean by the above ^^^ approach is my CURRENT training split which is BELOW:

Monday – Chest, Shoulders, Triceps

Tuesday – Back, Biceps

Wednesday – Legs

Thursday – Chest, Shoulders, Triceps 
Friday – 
Back, Biceps
Saturday – Legs
Sunday – Rest

As you can see now we are targeting each muscle not once but twice per week ensuring maximum results. In short if you want to build more lean muscle make sure you increase the frequency that you target each muscle and still allow time to recover in between as this is key!

I hope this helps!

Remember to change your body you need push yourself in each work out and get out of your comfort zone and then recover for the next workout.
