Bodybuilding Questions - How Often To Train Each
Which workout is better?
- (A) Chest and back, arms and shoulders, legs. I will train each
muscle group 2 times a week. Each muscle group will be worked
with 2 exercises and 4 sets per exercise (8 total sets per workout).
- (B) Chest, back, arms, shoulders, legs. I will train each muscle
group once a week. Each muscle group will be worked with 4 exercises
and 4 sets per exercise (16 total sets per workout).
Workout B is your better choice. You really don't want to train
a muscle group twice per week. It's too much and you might risk
overtraining. Hit it hard in the gym and then your body rest, recover
and grow. Also, 16 total sets is too many especially for smaller
muscle groups like the arms. Stick with 10-12 sets for larger muscle
groups (legs, back, chest) and 4-6 sets for smaller muscle groups
