If you started working out before the flood of fitness education the Internet has brought, a split is probably how you started! And for good reason, the 3-Day Split is a simple program that will get you into the habit of going to the gym as it is very convenient to follow.
Some tips on following the 3-Day Split program are:
- Keep the rests minimal to maintain a high intensity- Generally a particular muscle group will recover in 2 to 3 days, so in a 3-Day Split, you’re giving each muscle group more than ample time to be hit really hard at the gym. Take advantage of this and keep the intensity high!
- Go heavy on the core lift- Each workout is designed to have one core lift with complimentary exercises added on with higher reps. Feel free to add on more accessory exercises as you see fit by tapping “Add Exercise” within the app!
