Quick Guide to Bodybuilding Workout Routines (Part 1) :

Are you having trouble with all these technical bodybuilding workout terms? Read this quick guide for a basic overview on Bodybuilding Workout Routines...

For some of the experienced bodybuilders, this may be a quick refresher that'll help you freshen up your knowledge on the basics. But for all the other beginning bodybuilders or just anyone starting to get into fitness, you'll find this guide as a resourceful guide in helping you understand all the workouts there are out there.

Most Workouts Are Categorized By The "Split"...

Confused? Don't worry, all it means is how does the workout routine exercise each body part? Some workout routines involve full-body workouts which means you'll be exercising all the major muscle groups in every workout you do at the gym.

On the other hand, split-routines might only exercise the upper body for Workout 1 and then when you come back to the gym a couple days later you might exercise the lower body for Workout 2 and so forth.

What's the Point of Split Workout Routines?

When you first start weightlifting, you might do 3 sets of squats for your leg muscle group and then you'd move on to the next muscle group. However, as you get more experienced, your leg muscles will need more exercise and intensity for more muscle gains, so you might start doing 3 sets of squats, 3 sets of lunges, and 3 sets of leg press to finish it off.

As you can see, this is already a hefty portion of a workout, can you imagine doing that for four body parts in just one workout?! Unless you're a fan of 2 hour workouts or you only do a few sets per body part (read: 1-2 exercises per bodypart) then it's only logical to split your workout routine over a few days.
