For some it might be overtraining, but it works great for me. When I do splits I see very little gain. I have always been quick to recover.
#x a week, M, W, F. I do a total body workout those days with major lifts: Squat, dead, bench, rows, + some other work in areas i feel I need it. I keep sets to 4-5 per exercise though. THis is for about an 8 week plan to gain some mass and lose a little fat. Very intense workouts that leave you exhausted.this sounds like some serious over-training bro, it can take days for major muscle groups to recover fully, and you want your legs chest and back to be fully recovered before training them, especially on a bulk
I'm the exact same way. I've tried almost every kind of workout and split I could fine, but since I started this routine
7 weeks ago, I've seen monstrous gains and very little soreness. I squat before every workout; 2 warm ups then 5 working sets of 5 and then whatever the workout calls for that day. Deadlift says "1x5" which is 2 warm ups and 1 working set, but if you do that twice a week it's just enough where you feel it but not so much that it's over training. I substituted inverted rows for 5x5 bent rows too.
I swear by this routine and will probably do it for another month and see if I stall at all. If I'm still adding weight, then I won't fix what isn't broken.
