Considering that I used this workout last March, this is a long over-due post! As you might know, last year, I started going to the gym regularly. I started out with a whole-body routine that I did for a few weeks. After that, I created this workout.
It’s a basic push, pull, leg split. When I started using this workout, I could only go to the gym 5 times per week, so this is how I organized it:
- Day 1: Push #1: Focus on pectorals, shoulders and triceps.
- Day 2: Pull #1: Focus on back and biceps
- Day 3: Leg: Focus on quads, glutes and hamstrings
- Day 4: Rest day, no gym
- Day 5: Push #2
- Day 6: Pull #2
- Day 7: Rest day, no gym
As you can see, I used to train legs only once a week because I really hated training legs and also because I wanted to develop my upper body strength more… but really I just hated training legs. As this is a bit unbalanced, you could replace a rest day by a second leg day to hit your entire body twice a week.
I also added 10 to 15 minutes of cardio before starting using the weights, either running or cycling, as a warm-up. Finally, I added 10 minutes of stretching at the end of each session.
