"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."

 

This is one of 93 photos of Andy McCutcheon that are used in The New High-Intensity Training to illustrate the recommended exercises.

For twice a week I like
Back, delts, biceps
Legs, chest, triceps.
Or just an upper lower.



I much prefer training legs by themselves.

I definitely do as well. But if forced to train twice a week due to work or other stuff, that's usually how I group it. If possible, I like to space it all out
Chest calves
Back traps
Legs
Arms
Delts get salted in with back or chest. I usually stick to a 3 day split for the majority of the time.

I tend to default to a more moderate volume upper/lower split. Mostly to save my shoulders from getting worked 4x a week and it keeps the workouts more balanced from an overall volume standpoint.

For me, 90% of my training for the last... sheesh has it been that long.. ugh... 35 years, has been a 3 way split.

Since the mid 90's, 85% of my training has been push-pull-legs or chest-arms legs, back-shoulders, sometimes I'll switch it up to chest-biceps, back-triceps. I've tried the less intense higher frequency stuff that seems to be popular these days, and it's just not for me. You really have to water the effort down to train high frequency to the point that I really dont see any benefit. It might work for genetic freaks like Jason Gallant, but not for the majority.

Me too, I've gained with 3x full body, but the level needed causes burnout in a few weeks. 2x per week per muscle, I can go longer, but yet again, crash and burn after a month. I honestly think that's one of the biggest genetic traits of easy gainers, they can recover and actually train harder and more often and keep doing it to mount up gains.

I've been doing this way also for about 14 years. Changing from full body twice a week to a upper/lower split three times a week and finally divided once more to this and never looked back.

Each muscle group getting trained hard with two or three movements once a week is just right for me.

I guess there are lots of us out there that found the reality... the stupid 'high frequency' trend... good on paper, but not in reality. Heck, even Brad Schoenfeld admitted after his own studies he was shocked that 1x a week if things were equalized was pretty much the same for gains even , as higher frequency. So why beat oneself into the ground for 2 weeks of a bit faster gains that fade when you can't keep it up anyway?

Exactly what I do also.
