    What's the pros and cons for each.

    Why do you do the one you do?

    i do full body workouts..3 times a week

    for me its just easier if i work out everything i can on a day, for anyone who isnt into serious bodybuilding like me, its the best thing to do

    unless you wanna live a bodybuilding lifestyle and become a pro, this works best for you if you just want to stay in shape

    agreed...i do this during busier times in my life. do a couple exercises per muscle group and/or a lot of compound exercises, and never do them to failure. that way it tones and keeps everything in place, but doesn't require a lot of recovery before the next workout.

    when I'm busier I split up my workouts. For example now I can only make it to the gym 3 days a week for a very very short time. So I'll hit legs SUPER hard for 25-30 mins, chest/back SUPER hard for 25-30 mins another day, etc. That gives me a week to recover which is good because sometimes I'm sore for 2-3 days.

    I'd probably be on the full body/3 days a week schedule if I had more time to spend in the gym

    Both have their benefits, split helps you target certain muscles and give them more recovery time. Full body is good because it creates more HGH production and is a time saver.

    I do both and switch it up. Fuck only sticking to one or the other.

    I've done both, but I get better results when I split it up...a lot of people who don't know how to workout properly will do a whole body workout adn be dead tired the rest of the day to the point where they can't do shit else. Idk, when I do split workouts (which is what I do now) it just gives me more control. I can pretty much tell when I've done all I can handle.

    with full body workouts though you can get tired REALLY fast if you push yourself hard...then u'll think ur done..and like 4 minutes later ur ready to lift more.

    thats just me tho..

    And all you worry about is me.

    Everytime I post, you're behind me insulting me.

    You're so worried about me. I know you dream and think about me when you get off the site.

    It's ok, just don't try to clown me when I'm stronger, smarter, better looking and an overall way better human than you are.
