Best Kind Of Split For A Novice

Leave a comment

What’s the best kind of split for a novice? Training whole body three times per week? Upper-body-lower body? Some other split?

The upper body-lower body is advisable because it allows you to focus hard on major compound lifts for each half of the torso without the risk of overtraining. This type of split also allows you to focus on properly learning the movements. My suggestion for a novice would be lower body on Monday, upper body on Tuesday, rest on Wednesday, lower body on Thursday, upper body on Friday and rest on Saturday and Sunday.
