    I wanna start working out M T - W F. I need some advice please.

    I am just starting to work out and I am doing sort of a split at the moment. I am doing a split like this...

    Week 1
    Monday = Workout A
    Wednesday = Workout B
    Friday = Workout A

    Week 2
    Monday = Workout B
    Wednesday = Workout A
    Friday = Workout B


    I wanna start going like this...

    Monday = A
    Tuesday = B
    Wednesday = rest
    Thursday = A
    Friday = B
    Saturday = rest
    Sunday = rest

    My workouts only last around 45 minutes per seesion and are moderate in intensity. I just started a few days ago and I am very sore all over. I also run a lot so that probably isnt helping. Should I wait until my body adjusts or just work through the pain and let my body get used to it as I go along?


    Edit::The A and B sessions are the two sets of muscles that I work.
    ex: legs = A
    Arms = B

    It is different than that but you get the idea.

    Looks fine to me. You will want to decrease the volume on each workout though because you are now working each muscle twice per week. I like the idea of an upper and lower body split twice a week. Also, you may want to limit isolation work and get the lions share of your volume from compound lifts.
