A: Thanks for the question. We usually continue on Day 4 with the chest and back routine. Day five we do legs. We then take off days on the weekend and pick up with shoulders and arms on Monday—and continue. However, that’s not ideal because of overlap. We have weekend obligations (we both have kids), so we can’t always train on Saturday and Sunday. If we could, we would use the same split, but take a day off after workout 3; then start over with workout 1 after the off day:
Mon., Workout 1; Tues., Workout 2; Wed., Workout 3; Thur., Off; Fri., Workout 1, Sat., Workout 2; Sun., Workout 3
Mon., Off; Tues., Workout 1; Wed., Workout 2; Thur., Workout 3; Fri., Off, Sat., Workout 1; Sun., Workout 2
And so on.
It’s a three-on/one-off routine. That way you don’t train chest and back the very next day after you train delts and arms. We put up with that overlap because we have to have weekends off. [Note: Be sure and check our X-Blog.]
