Our muscles, just like any other good teams we see in some sports, works best when they are together. This principle is the reason behind why it is more advisable to train your muscles together. I also once believed that it is a good idea to work out different parts of the body on a given day. Just like an average gym-goer who will work out the chest and arm in one day, then come back the following day to work out for the back and legs, although I have nothing against it, I believe that better results can be achieved using the same amount of time and effort. In this article, we will discuss how we can better improve our workout routines and its benefits.
Let’s start by pointing out the danger of training body parts separately. Even though how badly you want to achieve that light bulb figure, this kind of training is like an open invitation for injuries or accidents. Plus a considerable benefit can be achieved through full body work out. You can build more muscle of up to 2.27kg more per month doing regular full-body workouts compared to the individual body part training. Calculated furthermore, that is equivalent to 27kg in 12 months. The reason behind this is that, instead of you doing in one workout 4 moves for your chest, you will be going to spread out the stimulus of those same 4 routines over 4-5 days. So it means that you have more recovery time and you can have your pecs grow all week instead of just the day after your session. This same theory applies to your legs, arms and gluts. Full body workout can be scheduled even for 3 days a week and still get the same result, and the best part is, this kind of training is injury free.
So the next time you plan to go to the gym, be sure to make a plan for a full body work out instead of training your muscles separately, which in turn will not help in growing them fast. Always remember that your muscles are team players and they perform best when they work together as a team.
