Overworked?

Aaron B. sent us his workout split and said he’s burned-out. Here’s what we advised

OUR ADVICE
You’re packing a lot of heavy lifts into one week, and that’s not giving you much recovery
time. Try training only three days per week, and have the fourth workout spill into the following week. Your numbers won’t progress quite as fast, but your joints will feel better.

AARON’S OLD SPLIT

DAYS EXERCISE
Monday Squat and legs
Tuesday Bench press, chest, and back
Thursday Deadlift, traps, and core
Friday Overhead press, shoulders, and arms

 

QUICK TIP
The older and stronger you get, the more often you must change your lifts to avoid injury and burnout.
