What’s my favorite training split to get ready for a bodybuilding contest?

Well there’s a few, here they are, plain and simply.

1) You can use the typical bodybuilding workout where you train one bodypart per day. So that would look like this

Monday-Chest workout

Tuesday-Back workout


Thursday-Shoulder workout

Friday-Arm workout

Saturday-Leg Workout


2) You can use a higher volume bodybuilding training routine where you emphasize one bodypart that you want to develop






Saturday-Chest and back training


This assumes that you are trying to provide more volume to your chest and back.

What other types of training routines for bodybuilding can you use?

-You can do three workouts while you try to fit in your cardio workout. That would look like this

    Jimmy, I remember reading an article you wrote in Natural bodybuilding and fitness discussing the different training frequencies. Do you still think training upper and lower power days followed by a day off or two and then more of a volume/body part split routine for the rest of the week is optimal for muscle growth (ala Layne Norton)?
