5 Day Split Weight Training Routine
I would like to present 5 day split routine routine that can be used to guide you in your weight training efforts.
Basically, a 5 day split routine uses the weekdays as the workout periods while freeing up the weekend.
There are usually no rest periods in 5 day split routines. Personally, I feel you should get more rest in this type of routine. However, each of us is built differently so it may suit you fine.
This 5 day split routine is designed for advanced trainers and should not be attempted by beginners.
However, remember that if you are a beginner, you should not start split training. You need this initial period to train your body to use the correct form and technique.
Let's take a look at a sample 5-day split weight lifting routine:
Day one, three, and five (Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays): Chest, shoulders, and arms;
Day two, and four (Tuesdays and Thursdays): Thighs, hamstrings, and abs;
Day six (Saturday): Rest;
Day seven (Sunday): Repeat.
As you'll note from the above routine, you'll see that there is minimum rest between workout sessions.
Unlike other two and three day splits, you get a minumum of 48 hours to rest each muscle group. Remember, if the muscle your going to train on a specific day is sore - Take another day off - This will do alot more for your body than training it when it's sore.
All the best,
