Hey guys.

Been lifting on and off for a fair while.

Always have done the beginners routine and have done so this time for 3-4 months.

Starting to really plateau I feel.

 

Do you guys think it's time for a split?

Ideally I'd want a 3 day split because I've made available time around a 3 day compound routine.

 

Just looking for best progression so after the best info please.

If you think I should stick at the compound routine for a while longer then tell me.

 

After more size and appearance rather than trying to be a power lifter.

 

If you guys agree with moving to a split, can anyone recommend a good full body split that I can do at home.

I have barbell, dumbells, cage and bench.

 

Train however you want, but put 100% effort in and you will reap the rewards.

 

A novice who puts in 100% effort re: training intensity, consistency and eating accordingly will make good gains on ANY program. (it's a bit like life really, put the effort in and you will reap the rewards)

 

If you're not lifting to be competitive/earn a living from it, then lift because you enjoy it, and as such train the way you enjoy, otherwise what are you doing it for? ;)

This is roughly what I do, it (1) suits my lifestyle and (2) is what I enjoy, if this helps you I am glad :)

 

Monday

- Bench press (main exercise)

- Reverse grip bench press (assistance exercise)

- Single arm KB/DB rows (assistance exercise)

- Trap bar bent rows (assistance exercise)

 

Wednesday

- Squats...yep, just squats for 60-90mins

 

Friday

- DB military press(main exercise)

- DB incline bench press (assistance exercise)

- Single arm KB/DB rows (assistance exercise)

- Trap bar bent rows (assistance exercise)

 

I occassionally also do

- UDL's with the 64kg kettlebell for cardio

- Deadlifts

Lol I can tell you 2 reasons why I build.

1. Chicks lol- having a six in hs was a big deal and pulling chicks with the click of a finger is even better.

And 2- to supplement my arrogance lol. :)

I believe to be the best is a combination of 3 things. Being the strongest, smartest and richest lol

^ Haha wouldn't be NS without the debates.

 

That's for all the inputs guys!

I think I'm going to try to get my diet 100% and if that still doesn't improve anything then I'll give a split program a go.

Facepalm@

>The misguided assumption that full-body compound routines are just for PLers.

>The retarded assumption that split training is more advanced.

 

Train hard, train heavy, eat well. If you're beginner to intermediate stick to high frequency lifting (ie. training bodyparts 2-3 times per week).
