The Ultimate Guide to An Effective Workout Split
New to lifting? Figuring out your training schedule, or ''split,'' is of the utmost importance.

It takes years of hard work—and lots of trial and error—to achieve your dream physique. We can make recommendations about the best exercises, successful sets-and-reps schemes, and our favorite training techniques, but at the end of the day you're the judge and jury about whether something works for your body.
This is never more apparent than when organizing your training program. Devising your workout and your training "split" (which body parts you do on a given day over the course of a week) revolves around factors that are specific to you.
