5 Day Split Workout for Strength and Muscle Growth

Before we get started on the workout, let’s take a moment to explain the “Chest, Back, Legs, Shoulders, Arms” split. When training for maximum muscular gains, you want to hit each muscle group with intense training 1-2 times per week. When choosing a workout split that works for you it is important to first determine the number of days you are available to train on a regular basis. Once you know the number of days, then picking the body parts to work with each workout becomes much easier. There is no “right split.” There are instead numerous possibilities you can chose from to reach your goals. This five day single body part split is awesome for hitting every major muscle group once per week. It allows a person with 4-5 hours a week available to work out to make unbelievable gains. Believe it! In Five 40-55 minute workouts, as listed here, you can create a rock hard physique.

ProNOTE: The Multisystem Home Gym allows multiple users to utilize the machine at the same time. This means you and up to two workout buddies can be blasting your best workouts ever, at the same time!

This is a comprehensive regiment designed to build lean mass and symmetry throughout your entire physique. The number of exercises, sets and repetitions is adjusted depending upon your current fitness level. If you are a “beginner,” follow the “beginner” program. The same goes for “intermediate” and “advanced.” Once you have mastered a particular level and are competent and confident in your progression then, and only then, move on to the next level. It should go without saying, but it is advised to seek clearance from a medical professional before beginning any exercise program. This is no different. As always, if any exercise feels dangerous or hurts in a way other than the good muscular burn, use an alternative exercise. This is a challenging program and all warnings and necessary precautions should be taken. Now that that has been said and all of the legal bases are covered…it’s time to get after it! Read through this workout. Be sure it makes sense to you.

There you have it! This is an awesome and effective training week. It is recommended that you use a training journal to track your weight and reps each workout. This is a way to be sure you are progressing. You will find that if you are pushing yourself as hard as you should you won’t always get all of the reps. When that happens, use a slightly lower or the same weight the next time you do the workout. When you do get all of the prescribed repetitions, bump up the weight a bit on your next workout. (For upper body exercises try 5-10 pound increases and for lower body try 10-20 pound increases) Practice multiple clean and small meals daily and do these work-outs on a regular basis. You will get results! Remember to start at the proper level and progress to the next when the time is right. Now, create the physique you deserve!
