Weight training strategies

muscle-gains-tentigo-menWeight training results in tiny micro tears in the muscles, which then rebuild and repair during the rest periods.

Failure to allow adequate time for this repair can cause injury to the muscles.

Fitness experts recommend

Fitness experts recommend that you follow a 3-day split.

On day 1, work your chest, triceps and shoulders.

For day 2, work the lower section of your body including the quads, calves, gluteals, hamstrings, adductors and hip abductors.

On day 3, exercise your abs, back and biceps. If you end up feeling sore after this, you may take an extra day or two to rest or work a new muscle group.

And always beware of delayed-onset muscle soreness that can hit as late as 48 hours after working out.
