"Doing more exercise with less intensity,"
Arthur Jones believes, "has all but
destroyed the actual great value
of weight training. Something
must be done . . . and quickly."
The New Bodybuilding for
Old-School Results supplies
MUCH of that "something."

Dumb article, unrelated to bodybuilding.

Prevailing majority of the suggested moves are unsafe.

Split routines are the future of the productive training, especially the routines that split the legs into different days.

Not true. You are free as always to believe any lie you choose but stop trying to force your belief as fact.

It has been suggested in some of the research that cortisol is a strong inhibitor of muscle hypertrophy. I wonder if split routines may inhibit cortisol production by reducing the amount of systemic stress induced by full body routines?

In my readings on blood flow restriction, some authors have mentioned the cross-transfer effect of working large muscle areas after smaller muscle groups. The exact mechanism is not fully understood but blood flow changes seem to have a positive effect on hypertrophy. So perhaps using a abbreviated or "consolidated" split would consist of a upper body movement which has smaller muscle groups followed by a lower body movement which has large r muscle groups.

Did I hit a nerve. The truth stings. Stop trying to force your false beliefs as fact.

This is one of those "either-or" arguments that never make any sense to me.

Both types of workouts have their pros and cons. Both have their champions and detractors.

One side CAN'T be all right, and the other all wrong. It never happens in the physical world.

Let's meet in the middle.

Let me repeat my Split Training platitudes for the purposes of this thread:

1. Split routines are rarely as split as their practioners believe.

2. It only takes 3 exercises to make a whole body workout --- 2, if you're really creative.

3. The jury's still out on this systemic recovery business. Are you truly good to go on an upper body workout after you've slammed your legs a couple of days earlier? In other words, can you get very positive effects --- or are they indeed negative effects --- when you work Group B of muscles before Group has fully recovered AND over/supercompensated.
AND
If you really need Group A to fully recover before doing Group B, what will that do to your overall frequency? Will it put you into ultra-Mentzer consolidation territory?

Thinkity Think Think on that stuff.
