Hardly a day goes by that I don’t get at least a few e-mails from excited new lifters asking me to critique their workout routines.
More often then not the sample routines they send me tend to focus too much on the “show off” muscles such as the chest and arms and not enough on the real powerhouse muscles of the back and legs.
So over the next week I’m going to put together a complete basic bodybuilding workout routine that you can follow that focuses on building size and strength throughout all the major muscle groups of the body.
This 3 day per week bodybuilding split routine that I’m going to share with you can be used by all lifters, from beginners right up to advanced levels, with good results.
Workout 1 – Chest, Shoulders, & Triceps
These are the “pushing muscles”. You’ll notice that all the exercises you do for chest, shoulders, and triceps involve some type of pushing or pressing movement. For example, bench press, shoulder press, tricep push down, etc…
That’s why we’re going to group all these muscle groups together in the same workout. This will allow the complementary muscle groups to get trained at the same time and also get equal recovery time between workouts.
In the 2nd workout we’ll cover the “pulling muscles”, the Back & Biceps, and in the 3rd and final workout we’ll cover training for the legs and abdominals.
