Hello all, I'm pretty new to lifting seriously. Hopefully I can word this so it makes sense. I've been running a 5x5 program doing an upper/lower body split. It's 4 days a week and looks something like:
Monday: Upper Body(bench,rows etc.)
Tuesday: Lower Body (Squat as the main lift)
Thursday: Upper Body(Something like Overhead press with Bench as accessory)
Friday: Lower Body(Deadlift as main lift)
Then rest the weekend.
I'm implementing all the big compound movements and will often switch around some accessory excercises weekly. But everyday I work the entire upper body or the entire lower body. My question is if I should be concerned about volume when trying to work in so many muscle groups in 1 day. I see many guys in the gym, for example on their chest day, doing Bench press, then Incline, then dumbell flies then dumbell press and so on. So I feel as though with an upper/lower split I'm not getting in the volume for each muscle group that I should be. Should I change something around or stick with what I've been doing? I have seeing some good gains, but some of my lifts are starting to stall. Hopefully this makes sense. Looking forward to your replies. Thanks.
