Full body split for my girlfriend

Post by ephs » Sun Oct 05, 2014 10:07 am

day 1:

squat 3x5
bench 3x5
rows 3x5

day 2:

squat 3x5
military press 3x5
deadlift 3x5

an example of the planned progression:

5x50, 5x50, 5x50
5x50, 5x50, 3x51
5x50, 5x50, 5x51
5x50, 5x51, 5x51
5x51, 5x51, 5x51
5x51, 5x51, 3x52,5 etc.

do you think that this makes sense and is it okay to train this split sometimes only 2x per week and not 3x?

Day 2 I would rather do:

Deadlifts 3x5
Press 3x5
Chin up or Lat Pulldown 3x5

Squats 3x5
Press 3x5
Deadlifts 1x5

Progression seems o. k. ... but why don`t you try to progress with 2,5kg sets across (or later half of it) as long as it works?

I think it`s o. k. to train only 2x/week if the schedule doesn`t allow a third session. But if this happens more often, I would rather not do an alternating fullbody plan.
