Push Pull Legs Workout Split - Pull DayIn December we were training using a bro split 5 times per week, taking the weekends off, this month we decided to change things up by changing our workout split to a push, pull, legs workout split repeated two times per week so that each bodypart would get worked out twice per week and we only have 1 rest day on a Sunday. If you read a lot of fitness forums and blogs (youtube fitness channels) you will often read/hear about how natural lifters should work out each muscle group more than once a week to get the best gains, so I figured since I was bulking I should give this push, pull, legs workout split a try. Also, earlier last year I did an Arnold workout split, which is a similar type of split in that it combines several muscle groups per day and each day is repeated twice weekly so that you are hitting each muscle group more than once per week.
Watch the pull day video I recorded earlier this week:
We do about 4 sets per exercise, starting from a light to relatively heavy weight. I like to end with a heavy weight because I feel heavy lifting gives you the most growth, that's when I start to really feel the effect of the weight. If you don't push yourself you will not grow. Yes form is important that is why I start with lighter weights, but the form tends to get worse as the weight increases. As long as I am not working out in a way that will injure me I will always try to lift more weight, the more I get used to it the better my form, then I will increase the weight again (that's just how I train).
