It’s time for another contentious topic, my friends.
No, not volume, frequency, or intensity. Today, we’re talking about workout splits. Specifically, full-body training.
Full-body and higher-frequency training has become more popular lately. And if you’ve followed my work over the years, you know I haven’t been a big proponent of full-body workouts. In fact, in previous editions of Bigger Leaner Stronger, the workouts had typical “bro-split” names (even though the workouts themselves were more like a Push Pull Legs split with added accessory days).
So, it’s not too surprising that I frequently get asked for my thoughts on full-body training versus body part splits and the “best workout split” in general.
Well, full-body workouts can definitely work well in certain situations—like when you’re a beginner or when you can only train one or two times per week. But for this episode, I decided to bring in a big proponent of and expert on full-body training, Menno Henselmans.
Menno has been a repeat guest on my podcast, but in case you’re not familiar with him, he's a bodybuilding coach, writer, and published scientist who’s also on the Scientific Advisory Board of my sports nutrition company, Legion Athletics.
In this episode, we chat about …

Why you should use a full-body split if you training infrequently

The primary benefits of full-body training (optimizing volume and work capacity)

How to properly program "supersets" without hurting performance (and actually improve it)

How to program an effective full-body routine

Saving time in the gym, inter-set rest time, and exercise order considerations

Periodization and why you shouldn't change exercises too frequently

Situations when full-body routine wouldn’t be the best choice

And more …

So, if you want to learn all about full-body training and whether you should give it a shot, listen to this episode.
