Is this any good?

Without going in depth with my workout, is this a good set up?

Day 1: Chest
Day 2: Lower Body
Day 3: Arms
Day 4: Back
Day 5: Shoulders
Day 6: Rest (i hate taking rest days and im thinking i wont have to since ive had days to recover from my last chest workout)

Repeat

i like tihs workout. It allows me to focus on each body part during my workouts and enjoy doing it. Is it a good set up?

Thanks!

I try and do legs everyday, but different exercises. I’ll alternate from chest and bicep to shoulder and tricep the next day.

I’m not a fan of splitting body parts up so much for athletes. The main reasons are: 1. each muscle doesn’t need so much attention and 2. you dont need a week of rest per muscle group.

  1. It takes 120 total seconds under tension for a muscle to receive the stimulus to grow. More time under tension doesn’t rear any greater result. So if we assume that one rep results in about 2 seconds of tension (concentric and eccentric tension) then you would need about 60 or so reps per muscle group. Your chest day, for example, has more than 200 total reps dedicated to just the chest musculature.

  2. Muscle needs 48 hours in between workouts to recover and rebuild. A split like the one you listed gives a full week between workouts. It’s just not a real efficient use of training time.

You’d be better off going with a upper/lower split or a 3 day fullbody.
Upper/Lower
Day One: Upper
Day 2: Lower
Day 3: Rest
Day 4: Upper
Day 5: Lower
Day 6: Rest

Fullbody
Day 1: Fullbody workout
Day 2: Active Recovery
Day 3: Fullbody
Day 4: AR
Day 5: Fullbody

That’s how I do it. I throw and pitch on Day 2 and 4 and some BP off a tee.
