Hey guys! Today I want to chat about my workout splits, week to week. Before I do however, I need to mention that this is what works for me. This might not actually be the best for you and your body however this is what I do and what benefits my body the best. Plus you could always give it a try, and see how it works for you.
I used to have a very unorganized split week and would kinda just go into the gym thinking… “I don’t know what i’m gonna do today”. I mean that was just chaos! I was tired of not knowing what I wanted to do for the day or what my schedule is. So I created one that incorporated 6-7 days each week, alternating between lower body and upper body. If one day I can not make it to the gym I use that as my rest day, and everything else will move to the next day scheduled. Are there weeks when I can’t make it every day? Yes. However, it all depends on the week and realistically its not always possible to get into the gym that much due to my schedule with school and other responsibilities.
So let’s jump into this.
Monday- ALWAYS leg day! We all know I love my leg workouts. Monday is my heavy day. I’ll up my weight more than normal, while doing lower reps of 6-8.
Tuesday- Shoulders! I go hard on them and really tear down the muscles. I do a mix of light weight high reps vs heavy weight low reps.
Wednesday- Legs! I’ll do light weight high reps.
Thursday- Back day! I’ll do the same that I do for shoulders, a mix of light weight high reps and heavy weight low reps.
Friday- Final leg day! Mix high weight low reps with low weight high reps.
Saturday- Biceps, triceps & chest! I tend to up my weight every week just a little bit.
Sunday- This is generally my rest day, however if I miss a day during the week this will be the make up day.
You might be thinking that training lower body 3 times a week is crazy, however I have to put in a lot more work to reach my goals. I started training legs that amount a few months back when I could see the results in my upper body but not in my lower body. So, I decided to add another lower body day to my week. I had only been training legs 2 times per week because I’ve always been advised to “do it this way”, however the results I’ve gotten have proven to me that this training schedule works best for my body.
It’s always good to test out safely what works best for your body keeping in mind that if you are going to be intensifying your workouts, that also keeping up with your protein intake and overall nutrition is very important. My ability to get into the gym also comes from Mei Fitness being a 24 hour fitness center. So, there is no excuses in not being able to go in and get your grind on at any time in the 24 hours we have in a day!
Sooo, GET TO GRINDING YALL!
