Combining Body Parts

Article care of midwestsupplements.com

There is a really huge amount of mystique floating around about which body parts to combine at workouts. I am asked this questions alot and it is usually prefaced with, "This one guy I know told me....(you pick the combination)." The truth is, I've tried almost every imaginable way of combining body parts for workouts. I've always gotten results regardless of combination. What you want to do is avoid doing anything which will lead to overtraining when developing your workout program.

What you combine isn't nearly as important as how you space out your workouts. For instance, if you do Chest and Back work on Monday, you wouldn't want to come back in on Tuesday and do Shoulders and Arms. Why? When you train chest you will be hitting your shoulders and triceps quite hard also. When you train back you will be hitting your biceps secondarily. You wouldn't want to come back the next day and hit them as primary groups after having hit them secondarily the day before. This could lead to overtraining eventually if not immediately.

Some samples of good programs are as follows:

Sample 1

Mon. - Chest, Back, Calves
Wed. - Shoulders, Arms, Abs
Fri. - Quads, Hamstrings, Calves


Sample 2

Mon. - Chest, Triceps, Abs
Tue. - Back, Calves
Thur. - Shoulders, Biceps, Abs
Fri. - Quads, Hamstrings, Calves


Sample 3

Mon. - Chest, Shoulders, Triceps, Abs
Wed. - Back, Biceps, Calves
Fri. - Quads, Hams, Calves


Sample 4

Mon. - Chest, Biceps, Abs
Tue. - Quads, Calves
Thur. - Shoulders, Triceps, Abs
Fri. - Back, Hamstrings, Calves


As you can see, there are many ways to combine body parts and get tremendous results. One sure way to realize that an amateur is giving you advice is if they are recommending one specific combination as the holy grail of weight training. These people are probably not the best sources for training information. You can get some ideas from them, but realize that they might not be quite as knowledgeable as they are acting.
