Two- Versus Three-Way Split Resistance Training Regimes

December 27, 2016

The most optimal training split for muscular development and strength is often debated 🤔
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Although there are countless ways you can split up your training e.g. Upper/lower, push/pull/legs, body part splits, there may not be too much difference between routines 👈
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For example, in this study by Ribeiro and colleagues (2015) exercises were matched between groups but were arranged differently into either a two- or three-way split 🏋
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Both training routines produced similar gains in fat-free mass and strength over a 4 week period 📈
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Although it was just a pilot study, and not without its limitations, pretty interesting nonetheless 👍
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My primary takeaways from the study:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1. As long as you train a body part twice a week, your training split probably won't matter too much ☝️️
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2. Your training routine can be flexible around your lifestyle. You don't need to train every day. If you can only train a few days of the week then do so 💪
