    upper and lower body






    alright people, just a quick question i have. i know not to train upper body two days in a row but is it alright to train upper and lower two days in a row. My current split is

    chest, biceps
    legs
    back, triceps

    so is it o.k to do this on monday, tuesday, and thursday? When i train i use a really high intensity so the next day i'm always really tired.

    Well, it depends on your goals.

    If you're trying to gain size, then I think you need to give your muscles 4-5 days rest.

    You can train upper body 2 days in a row while building or cutting. As long as your bodypart arrangement is good...for instance...monday: chest, biceps...tuesday:legs...thursday:back...friday:del ts, triceps.

    oh shit! I thought he was saying

    chest, biceps
    legs
    chest, biceps

    I must not have had my glasses on!

    Yeah, that is fine to do

    chest, biceps
    legs
    back, triceps

    The only thing I would not like about it is working back the day after legs, especially if you do squats.

    Personally, i'd do legs then back, I'd want my back strongest for squats but really, if your doing legs then back the next day you should alternate squats and deads, do one one week and switch the next.

    ac..if you can only train 3 days per week, I would suggest the following...

    Day 1: chest, back, abs
    Day 2: quads, hams, calves
    Day 3: delts, biceps, triceps, abs

    I used this split for my first few years of training. I went from 130 lbs to 200 lbs on it.
