    Split lower and upper body

    When your doing a four-day routine, should you split up lower and upper body? For example Mon and Thursday would be upper body and Tuesday and Friday would be lower body. Or should you mix it up?

    This is exactly what I did and I was making great gains. Every session my lifts would go up. I'm changing my routine now, because doing a split like that, I wasn't able to train everything the way I wanted to due to not having enough time.

    so you mean two sessions a week on legs?
    one should be enough, you can mix up parts of leg routines with upper body if you like

    If you are working each muscle only once a week, try this:

    Monday Legs+calves
    tuesday Shoulders+Biceps+Triceps+Forearms
    wednesday Abs
    thursday Back+Traps+rear delts
    friday
    saturday Chest
    sunday Abs
