How to compose an effective training split?

Most bodybuilding magazines can confuse inexperienced young athletes who are trying to make their training program. For example, in a magazine you find an article about the program to build the huge pectoral muscles, and you certainly want to have it, but other magazine advice to try supersets for back and chest and it also sounds tempting.

Journal articles only make us confused by guiding us in an infinite set of different directions. One guy advises train triceps after back, another to train biceps with triceps and the third insists on work on triceps after chest and shoulders. Who is right?

Well, they are all right. If we discard all unnecessary and take into consideration the basics principles then remain – Train all your muscles and they will be big. Of course with condition that you have adequate diet. But the food – this is a topic for another article.

To give the right direction for beginners, and maybe to experienced athletes who want to experience a new and effective training program, let’s have a look at the method of composing split, in which each muscle group from trapezoids to the calf muscles, gets intense and effective workout.

The basic idea of this method is very simple – the body should be divided into parts, provide a direct load on each part of the body, build big and strong muscles, and feel like a winner. So let’s see how it can be realized.

What exercise to choose for the abdominal muscles

In order to get rid of the big belly, many of us begin perform press exercise. Long, hard and unsuccessfully. Why? Because targeted exercises for this group of muscles only strengthen and increase abs but no more … And all your efforts may remain unnoticed under a layer of fat, which is densely settled there.

There are a lot of options: it is different crunches and leg raises that are performed as with weight or not. It is believed that the rise of body load the upper press, and leg lift – lower one. But this division is quite arbitrary, since the rectus abdominis is one.

Myths about ABS

Well defined abs is the dream of many. And the harder it is to achieve, the more it wants. Abs fascinates, attracts attention and is a matter of pride. Yes, there are people who do not need to exert much effort to show off their cubes on the beach, but in most cases it is a long and laborious work.

Let’s dispel the myths that can prevent you from achieving the goal:

1. Number of packs = number of muscles
Rectus abdominis – that is the muscle that it is divided into packs with horizontal and vertical tendons. The amount and form of packs is determined by genetics, and to change anything hardly anyone can.

2. Many reps = perfect abs
In fact, it is not true. If you do many reps, then, after reducing the percentage of body fat, you will just see a flat abdomen. But for the packs to become packs you need to work with additional weight performing 8-12 reps, the situation is the same as with other muscles.

3. Daily workouts = well defined abs
Abdominal muscles are the same as all other muscles. And they also needs time to recover. You have to work intensively on the abdominal muscles to three times a week.
