      Hitting all body parts 3x a week gives more gains than your ppl split

        It doesn’t, and numerous studies have proven this.
        If you go balls the wall with your training, you simply can’t preform as well on your last exercise as you do on your first.
        Full body splits are great for people who just want to be healthy and active, they are completely suboptimal for hypertrophy.

          3x / week is the optimal choice for frequency.

            DYEL spotted. If you dont already know that you’ll be weaker on your 5th lift than your 1st from experience then you’re just lying / a literal moron / leave too many reps in the tank (AKA you are a pussy)

            That's not the issue. The issue is that you reach cns fatigue before pushing all of your muscles to failure. You're leaving gains on the table because you're limited by your cns.

              You dont though. Full body 3x a week doesnt mean that you do squat/deadlift/bench literally every single day you workout. You can have 2 workouts be upper body based full body and then third be lower body emphasized full body. You can deadlift only once in a week. Or frick dont deadlift at all. You can choose low fatigue exercises. And doing high fatigue training makes you be able to sustain high fatigue training.

              When I do full body it feels impossible to switch to splits, then when I get used to splits it feels impossible to switch to full body. Your body is incredibly good at adapting to what it is doing.

                I'm not talking about from workout to workout. I'm talking about reaching cns fatigue by the end of your workout and not being able to work the muscles toward the end of your routine as much as they should be.
                Either your total volume for one workout is too high for your cns to handle, so you skimp on the last few sets. Or if you lower your volume enough that your cns can handle it, you won't be getting enough total weekly volume even if you train every day.
                Full body is just too much to feasibly do properly in one workout.

                Squatting does not affect your curls

              • 1 month ago
                Anonymous

                Yes it fricking does. You have finite energy in your body that needs to be budgeted. Squats won't cause muscular failure in your arms, but it will consume energy that then can't be used on curls. Even if you can manage to do some curls, you won't be able to do as much as you otherwise could, and probably won't be able to do enough to push them to muscular failure.

    Because nowadays going to the gym has become a lot of peoples' personalities. I do a meme ABA BAB 3x/week MWF program, max 1.5 hours each, then I play soccer or swim the other days if i'm not too busy with work or social life.

    I know a guy who goes to the gym 6 times a week but looks like absolute garbage. And I always wonder if they have any hobbies or anything going on outside of it. Obviously if you're advanced lifter or competing I totally get it.

    I do 4 movement based days.
    Mon:Squat/bench
    Tue: deadlift
    Thu:squat/bench
    Sat: lighter deadlift variation/ohp
    And every day I do back extentions, pull-ups, curls, rows and the rest of that gay shit.
    I have 2/3/4/5 but I'm fat and have been lifting for a decade. Works 4 mee.

          Thanks... do you know where anyone else discusses this? it seems like no one talks about it, probably because people don't have the time or something. But I have a lot of time and am only a few minutes walk from the gym and I can enter as many times a day as I want.

    Fitness industry propaganda. Lifting heavy 2x a week allows for perfect recovery and no overtraining while getting the best gains once past beginner mode. Also, as you said, combined with sports + lots of walking it's perfect for maintaining a healthy and lean body

    Fullbody might give you some slow progress but works the best if you are playing sports or want to avoid injuries from fatigue.
    I have been lifting fullbody three times a week (usually took 90min) while swimming in highschool, rowing in uni varsity team, and playing rugby in a club.

    I think ill stay with my split. ive used full body before, and while i enjoyed it, the reasons above made me switch back.

      Yeah cns fatigue is a real b***h if you are playing sports as well. Hitting near PR weight comes only at the last one or two sets and you need somewhat good enough genetics and youth to recover fast. This made some athletes fall due to not catching up their programs with proper recovery.
      Legs are important in some sports (rugby for example) so you can change your fullbody plan on legs with other lacking body part if you think hitting legs is not necessary.
      Yeah taking too much time in lifting/sports is another problem if you are not in school. Still student athletes strength coaches plan lifting program 2-3 times a week.

    Try doing it past the beginner stage, it's either going to be too little volume or you will not be recovering in time.

    Once you get stronger, training all muscles effectively in a single workout becomes difficult.
    Its not the best way to continue to gain strength or size.
    I myself could never find the energy to do Squats/Deadlift, after being finished with OHP or Bench and Weighted Pull ups or Rows
    Doing Squats/Deadlift first in the workout is not a option because they also frick you up for the rest of the workout.
    You also need to at least 1 isolation exercise for delts, biceps, triceps, maybe even chest on top of that.

    Muscles need 6-10 sets a week for maximum growth.

    Muscles:

    >front delt
    >side delt
    >rear delt
    >chest
    >abs
    >biceps
    >triceps
    >traps
    >lats
    >low back
    >quads
    >hamstrings
    >calves

    13 muscles x 8 sets = 104 sets a week

    Full body 3x week = 104/3 = 34 quality sets

    You don’t do 34 quality sets a session.
