Re: Body Part Splits


Great stuff guys, its awesome to hear everyone’s ideas. I also totally agree with Fergus, firstly determine the goal then the means. I though I might add my two cents. Athletes typically perform a lot of neurally demanding exercises throughout the season so performing upper/ lower splits allows for the nervous system to have a break. However, Thibaudeau suggests the optimal training frequency per week of movements or body parts is x 2-3. At the moment my inseason athletes are hitting each movements twice via Fullbody workouts (One size or strength orientated, the other power). By doing this they are receiving all of the split benefits while training with optimal frequency.
