Each body part should be trained with three sets per day. That is a total of nine sets per week. While this may seem like a very small number, it is important to remember that whatever body part you are training, it will receive its next dose of stimulation in 48-72 hours.
While the trainers of today employ drug regimens, which allow for recovery from 30+ set days per body part, the training they used decades ago (hitting each body part twice per week) was effective then, and is effective now.
You might find you love this split, or you might discover itâ€™s just not for you, what are your thoughts?
for any indication of the effectiveness of this you might try explaining a little bit more. are you training for size, strength, endurance. how heavy are these 3 sets? truthfully, i dont think much of it as a work out plan. I really don't think 3 sets of bench 3 times a week is going to be more effective or even as effective as other training splits out there. i also think your comment on "drug regimens" is way off base.
