A Full Body split normally prescribes just 3 training days, leaving you with 4 rest days each week. Now I know what you might be thinking, that’s a lot of days off…but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
If you think about it, our muscles only repair and grow when we at rest. Training is actually catabolic, as you are breaking the muscle down, whereas during your rest days, nutrients rush to the muscle in an anabolic fashion.
On top of that, it’s clear that a split of this nature is perfect for those who have a busy schedule and can’t make it to the gym 5 days per week. The Full Body split tends to lead to a greater work/life balance, and so, makes perfect sense for the recreational lifter, beginner or even serious trainee who leads a busy life outside of the gym.
This should also then, in theory, lead to an overall greater degree of adherence and we all know a training program is only as good as your ability to stick to it. Thus, from a psychological standpoint, this split shows great promise.
