We start working out and get all psyched but the very next day we feel so clueless as to what we need to do. So we end up repeating the full workout again.

Is this the story of your life? Well, we are here to help you. We will give you a 5-days workout. You can either choose full-body training or a split routine. We are giving you a split workout plan as we think that it leads to lesser fatigue. This is mainly because you work on a particular muscle group on a specific day leading to better performance when it comes to compound movements.

That being said, you end up working on a particular muscle group leading to better adaptation and results. These workouts are not very long. Since you are working on a particular body part, the time spent reduces. With a split workout, you also give enough time to a particular part of the body to recover so that it does not end up being sore.

Things to remember while making a split workout plan:

· In order to formulate a split workout, you need to distinguish between an upper body workout and a lower body workout.

· Your split workout will mainly contain 1 different segment per day, namely your chest, back and shoulder, arms, abs and legs.

· You must increase the number of sets and reps you do in each workout.

· Cardio is a must in each of these routines.
