You're probably familiar with upper/lower split routines...
But have you tried a push-pull workout routine?
This type of training is based on movement - pushing or pulling - instead of specific muscle groups.
Push - Pull routines ensure you work opposing muscle groups equally and allow for optimal rest between workouts.
Push Day: Exercise Examples
> Chest press > Push up > Tricep press > Tricep dips > Overhead press > Lateral raise > Squat > Lunge > Leg press > Leg extension > Calf raise > Glute bridge
(screenshot to save!)
Push exercises are pushing away from the body.
They usually work chest, shoulders, triceps, quads, and calves.
Pull Day: Exercise Examples
> Lat pull down > Bent over row > Upright row > Face pull > Cable row > Reverse fly > Bicep curl > Hammer curl > Pull up > Chin up > Good morning > Deadlift > Romanian Deadlift > Leg curl > Back extension > Shoulder shrugs
Pull exercises are pulling toward the body.
They usually work lats, biceps, mid back, traps, and hamstrings.
Alternate your push and pull days - and don't forget rest days too!
