It’s one of the most common questions we get at the gym. What’s the best weekly split to gain muscle and strength? Although the bodybuilders will have you believe a bodypart split is best, talk to any strength coach and almost all of them use total body training sessions with their drug-free athletes and clients. For the natural lifter, it makes the most sense.
Strength coach Will Fleming gives us his top ten exercises to build an explosive, powerful body. How can you incorporate them into your current routine? Select one exercise and start each one of your workouts with it. Don’t be surprised if your max bench shoots up. Powerlifting extraordinaire, Louie Simmons has been using speed work for years to improve his max bench and squat.
What rep ranges are you currently using? If you still believe high rep training is the best way to add muscle, Jason just may surprise you. We’ve been using low rep training for years, and only resort to high rep training to alleviate tendon soreness.
