Which training split should you choose?
"It depends", it's a phrase you will often hear in connection with training, diet and fitness in general.
If you are a beginner, I would choose a full body. If you are further into your training course, we are probably more into a 2 split. If you have come a long way with your training and spend 5-6 in the center, we are probably more into a 3, 4 or 5 split. But again, it depends.
How long have you been training?
What are you training for?
How often can you exercise?
What do you have available?
If you haven't started yet or maybe just started, I have a program that is suitable for many beginners (Get a handle on the technique first).
- Deadlift (conventional or sumo)
- DB chest press
- DB shoulder press
- High cable row
- Lat pulldown
Exercises marked with bold I recommend using straps for.
All exercises are performed by 3 sets of 10-12 repetitions.
The program ensures that all muscles are brought into play without becoming too unmanageable. If you are a large man or woman, lunges can possibly be replaced with leg presses.
If you are pressed for time, I would either cut all sets down to 2 sets or cut the 'DB shoulder press' and/or 'lat pulldown'.
On Instagram you can find videos that both explain exercises or programs such as full body, 2 split and 3 split 💪
