Hi, qq for those of you doing multi day splits (or those who aren't but can explain them
) When you are doing shoulders on M, back on W, legs on F, chest on S, I assume you are doing more than just the std 2 types of exercise on each body part. So you are probably doing like 4-5 different types of exercises for each part, right? So in effect, you are working much harder the various parts than someone who does like a fbwo 2x a week and sticks to doing just 2 exercises per body part. Is that right, or are you only doing 2 exercises for like only a 15 min weight workout on each of your splits and doing cardio with the rest of your time?
I worked out Tuesday nite, so technically, I shouldn't work out again til tomorrow to allow the 48 hr rest, but I'm feeling itchy like I want to. I could change to multiple day splits, but I fear messing up the schedule if I can't get to it every other day bc of traveling or whatever. Though, I guess it's easier to fit in if it's only one specific part for 15-20 mins isntead of a 90 min fbwo, so that's worth considering............
I'm doing the fbwo 2x/wk bc over a month's time, it's more workouts than doing an ub/lb split 3x week. But maybe it's time to rethink that for several mini-session body part workouts.
ETA: I did read Waterbury's opinion on those great links depalma posted. Sounds like I'm the stereotypical 40 something woman with lots of fat left to lose and limited training time, so I'm on the right track doing a fbwo, but I just wanted to understand the anatomy of the body part split for those of you doing them.
