Hello. Just had this random thought while watching a full body workout ( dumbbells only ) video.

My priority is to train up the muscles and growth on every part of my upper body as well as legs. Currently I am doing exercise specifically for arms / forearm day 1, chest / shoulder day 2, legs day 3 respectively. Is it better this way or should I instead just follow and do one full body workout in one day and repeat ?

Would appreciate any advice, thanks.

depend on the target and how you train.

i currently doing bro split. monday leg (hardest day.) , tuesday chest , wednesday i do arm and abs and some cardio ( mid intensity only) , thursday back workout , friday shoulder.

full body is more for ppl that has less time to go gym maybe 1-2 times a week then surely a fullbody will be great.

or if you wan just go for push , pull , leg and repeat.

ofcourse when to rest is up to you and how you feel.

most important is high protein diet.

Any Split is fine.
As long you are doing enough sets to failure. Optimally 15 sets of failure per week per muscle (quad, hamstring, chest, bicep, etc..).

Both also can, as long as you workout and move your body around. better than sitting down all days watching movies, working and eating

For me I prefer split, eg.

Mon : pull
Tue : Push
Wed : Leg
Thurs : Push + Pull

P/S - Sorry to revive old thread, just have a related question hence don't warrant a new thread.

I'm currently following a program ( Dumbbells ONLY ) just like to ask for advice if it's a decent schedule routine for building muscles.

Basically I'm doing split with 4x10 for each exercise and body parts, moving up to 4x12, then after 1-2 weeks, increase the weight slightly, move back to 4x10, then 4x12 and repeat.

Monday - Arm / Chest
Tuesday - Shoulder / Back
Wednesday - Rest ( some push ups )
Thursday - Arm / Chest
Friday - Shoulder / Back
Saturday - Leg
Sunday - Rest ( some push ups )

U must build the calf 1st, bottom must big to sustain the upper body
Butts is supporting spinal. Big butts got big hole, big calf is foundation

I think you have a really good plan. What you can change is work on upper body one day and the next day you work on your lower body. You do three days a week on your upper body and three days on your lower body with one day rest in a week.

Problem is hard to go to failure if prefer compound movement and dont have a spotter.

RPE 8 / RIR 2 is enough.
