Upper/Lower strength training Split

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,


been talking to a trainer online, who reckons I should do this upper lower strength training routine. To me it looks like there’s not enough of each muscle group to be beneficial. The way I’m ment to do it is. Monday- Upper Tuesday-Lower Weds-Off Thursday-Upper (again) Thursday-Lower 2 and on weekend I can do optional day. What’s your thoughts on this.
