push pull split sucks in my opinion....
That's right I'm dissing the most famous split.
In my opinion it is less effective than pairing
The reason I think this is that when you do a push pull split almost all your lifts will be puny except the first one. If you know what I mean. On the other split I mentioned each set can be heavy weight. Your muscles won't be fatigued. I'm going to leave it at that. I already wrote a post like this about 5 months ago but I thought I'd just let the new guys hear my opinion.
Re:you suck in my opinion....
How could you train your chest/ back with any kind of intensity in the same day? Talk about getting fatigued, besides the fact of being in the gym for too long.....I'm ready to puke after back day, not bench LOL
It doesn't matter that you'd have say, "puny" tricep lifts after training chest...your tri's will be pre exausted, and it won't take much more to finish them off.... That makes much more sense then to start off a fresh large muscle group like chest or back after your body is already worn down from training the other...
