Achieving your bodybuilding goals depends on a number of factors. Among these factors are the correct diet and workout routine. Combining these two factors will ensure that you achieve your desired physique in no time.
For a beginner, there is often a lot of confusion about the right routine to observe in their mass building endeavors. There are a number of routines that one can follow and that will work. However, the main issue here is the routine that will work best and that will achieve your desired goals fast. For this reason, here are three bodybuilding routines that will help you achieve your desired physique in no time.
The 3-Day Full-Body Routine
Just as the name suggest, this routine requires you to work out for only three days a week. When using this routine, you are required to rest for 1 day after each workout day and then rest 2 consecutive days (the weekend). This routine involves full body workouts and is typically used by beginners. What makes this routine great for beginners is the fact that:
– It gives a beginner the opportunity to familiarize him or herself with exercises because of repeating them many times throughout the week.
– Beginner’s bodies experience more gain training less rather than training more.
– This routine also allows your body to adapt to exercises and recover better.
The 4-Day Split
After you are done with the 3-day full-body workouts, the next routine for you is the 4-day split. This routine is mostly performed by trainers who are in their intermediate level.
This routine has many different variations. However, the most common of these variations is the working out the upper body and then the lower body in the next day. You are then required to take a rest day and then repeat the whole routine again. You can then take a two days off for the weekend or choose to take just one. It is advisable that you go for the two days weekend off instead of one as the former will throw off your workout schedule for the coming week.
This routine is best for intermediate trainees as by now they will have been training longer and have become stronger in their lifts, therefore, more rest will be required for them.
This routine is best suited for advanced trainers though it can also be used by anyone. Though a person can train for 7 days a week, it is good to take at least two days of rest. The 5-day split routine involves focusing on training only 1-2 muscle groups per workout. This routine, therefore, gives this group of muscles ample time to fully repair and to stimulate growth.
