Choosing the most suitable workout will make you feel proud about your iron filled muscles. Is it too difficult to get the desired shape and muscles around your arm?  Want to know how to be the best muscle beast? We have the top 3 muscle building routines that will help you out.

3 Day Routine for Full Body

This routine is useful for newbies as it involves full body workout. If you are a beginner then it will show tremendous results on your body because:

  • It makes you familiar with the exercises as you repeat them many times in a week.
  • Lift the lighter weights and the move to heavier weight before next workout. So, it is always recommended to activate the muscle more repeatedly because mostly beginners do not have the same strength levels as experienced lifters.
  • In the beginning, you need not have more training. In fact, your body will obtain more gains in less training.

This routine comprises 3 day workout in a week. First two days of workout are followed by a day’s rest and 1 or 2 day’s off is taken after the third workout. Your body needs to be accustomed to these exercises so it also requires time to recover and grow. In beginning phase, 3 day workout routine is a good start as it allows more regularity and more volume ultimately.

4 Day Split:

Generally, intermediate trainers perform this routine. There are many deviations according to your body type but the most general pattern is the workout of upper body then lower body followed by a rest day. Unlike 3 days workout where you had a choice to rest for a one day or two days, in this routine you will get only one day off. The reason behind the classification of this routine as intermediate is because by now, you have been training longer and you have gained strength in your lifts, your body necessitates more rest to let suitable recovery of body parts you trained in your workouts.  You will retreat the occurrence of training each muscle, however, you will amplify your training day by one. After completing 3 day workout routine for 3-6 months, you can focus on this pattern to experience more muscle gains.

5 Day Split:

This is the most advanced routine suggested for everyone. Once you have been training for many years and increased utmost strength and maximum muscle growth, you may now focus on 5 day split routine that encompasses 1-2 muscle groups per workout. After training for 2 years or more, in the beginning, the strength gain experience does not transpire at the same pace. At a certain point, it becomes very intricate to append more weight in your lifts or even develop added muscles. At, this point, we suggest to increase the amount trained on the muscle at your workout day and grant a longer cycle to repair completely and to encourage growth.

We propose you to decide yourself the training level and then pick the routine that suits you best according your personal necessities.  Patience is the main aspect while concentrating on one thing at a time. You will observe that with every routine you are progressing and gaining some remarkable results.
