Recently a friend asked about weight training and general exercise. “Can I train chest 2x per week?”
Chest is a large muscle group and can withstand two strong workouts per week but ultimately all the muscles improve with repair. That means rest.
So, every muscle group 2x per week will be very effective but 1x per week will give you good results without injury.
It’s best to start easy.
‘Better to train little and often as oppose to long and hard all in one day. ‘
.Chest and biceps
.Back and triceps
.Shoulders and legs
.Arms again plus abs
This a good 4x per week split.
Add a bit of cardio 2x per week. Even if it’s 5mins during your weights workout, your heart and lungs health will benefit.
Make sure you stretch at the end.
