A recently redefined training technique that is making a great difference in the lives of professional body builders is split workout training. For those people who are really intent on bulking up, chiseling the muscles to perfection, defining the body contours between the muscle groups and packing all body parts to the ultimate muscle power, then this is just the way to do it.
Let us begin by definitions, as they do in theory classes. To split a workout refers to the action and or decision of performing separate, disjointed sets of several exercises within a training routine, where each muscle group is allocated a session of training for absolute isolation, all accumulating to whole body stimulation growth and development. A split workout is primarily designed to amplify the overall muscular symmetry, mass, strength and endurance. We have two ideal ways you can split your training workout, each with specific directions for beginners and intermediate or advanced body building trainees.
The first suitable way of splitting a workout is referred to as the Three-Way Split Workout. For beginner body builders, who have just joined weight exercises for muscle growth stimulation, the thing to do is divide your body into sections covering the arms, the chest, the back, the shoulders, the legs and the abdomen. Then design a program that allows you to train only three sections of the body with a single set in each workout session. A training session should therefore be split into three, each section dedicated from one body part as identified above. Each body part should be trained twice weekly, meaning that you should have only three training sessions per week.
For the body builders in intermediate and advanced training levels, the training session should be split into three, performing two to three sets for each body part. The workout should be adopted for a minimum of six months. Warm up and stretching exercises are not included in the intensity of a training session in a split workout, though the body part to be trained in that day must be warmed up in advance of weight exercises.
The second split workout design is referred to as Two-Way Split Workout. For beginners, the workout session should be split into two, training two parts of the body for a single set exercise , two time a week. But for intermediate and advanced body builders, the session should incorporate three to four sets for every body part trained in a day, two at most, and this after an intense pre-exhaust training.
Ideally, split training relies on the principle of isolation training, where a training session is dedicated tow two or three body parts, covering the various muscle in that body part for at least twice in every week. The target is taking the body to the heist plateau of muscle build, definition and strength. This can be done for a period of about six months, and the gains will be phenomenal. However remember that the training must go hand in hand with the appropriate dieting, if growth is to accumulate.
