Whats the craic.Ive been looking at the routines posted by people on loads of sites and was wonderin if someone could clear somethin up for me.99% of all these routines only work each individual muscle group once per week, but i had the impression that 96 hours(4 days) was the max time ya should leave between working a muscle because by then its fully healed and starts breaking down.Mine is
DAY1 Back-9 sets/3exercises
Legs-6sets each for front&back (roughly45mins)
DAY 3 Rest(unless im doing abs)
and abs every 2nd day.I use weights that i max at 8 reps.Bench is 240lbs,Military Press is 155lbs& Bicep curl is 40lbs each DB.Some days id add another rest day if needed.My max Bench ever was 315lbs.This probably sounds like alot but ive made great progress with it.Id appreciate any comments.Cheers.
Well, its a complicated setup;mainly because i wanted to work my abs more frequently and vary the frequency a little bit.It goes
DAY2-Back,Legs,Bis DAY7-Repeat day1
DAY3-Abs DAY8-Repeat day2
I know there arnt many rest days, but days were i only do my abs take less than 25 minutes and its easy to do them without getting any other muscles secondary, so there practically like rest days.I do cardio 2 or 3 times during this routine.
