Why Full Body Workouts Are Best Full body training is pretty self-explanatory? you train every major muscle group in a single session. As you need to hit each muscle group, the number of sets and exercises you can perform in one session is limited. Training Some people say that doing full body workouts when bulking is the key to muscle growth. Others say that split workouts like upper/lower body or push/pull/legs are the best. Then you have those who swears by training just two, or even one body part per day for 5 days in a row.
If you like the ‘pump’ you get from isolation exercises during a split workout, you may not get it to the same extent during a full body session, although you will most likely sweat more and work harder. With total body workouts, or upper/lower splits, you are hitting your muscle groups with at least twice as much frequency meaning you are triggering twice as many growth phases. In any given year, if you are only training each body part once a week, that is 52 growth phases.
Lose the body part split and you are already up over 100 growth phases. When you do a full body routine you’re raising these rates of muscle protein synthesis for your entire body 3 times per week. When you do a split routine, you’re only raising the rates of muscle protein synthesis for each muscle group once or twice per week.
Simple math tells us that 3 is greater than 1 (or 2). If that describes your situation, you might best be served by an upper/lower split, or perhaps even a bro split, because the more weight you lift (in absolute terms), the more damage your muscles experience. And the more muscle you have, the more muscle that you’re damaging with your workouts. Both of which mean you need more time to recover. A full body workout routine is a strength training program built around training most or all of the entire body during each workout rather than splitting it up into different parts.
With other types of workouts, you might have an upper body day, or chest day, or arm day, or leg day, or back and biceps day, or push day, or something similar. Full body workouts do have the downside of being longer in duration. Even though they are performed only 3 days a week, this time constraint may become less than ideal. This leads us to the next level of gym competency.
