Default so I tried full body workouts

I knwo I'm new here but I have to get this off my chest. I'm a beginner so I thought I'd give this method a try, and oh boy do I regret it. I don't care if you are a beginner, an intermediate or an advanced lifter, never EEEEEEver do a full body workout three days a week. Stick to training each muscle group once a week. Trust me I've had to learn the hard way this past week that that is whats best. Anyhow for those beginners thinking of doing full body work outs take my advice and stick to split training.

Why do you not recommend full body workouts? They appear to be the standard routine prescribed for beginners. I've been following the writing of Casey Butt who wrote that even advanced bodybuilders used them in the off-season before drugs became widely used and saved split routines prior to competition. To make them work beyond the novice stage, you need to vary intensity through the week, e.g. the schedule on a 3-day a week full body programme might look like this: 1st workout 5RM, 2nd workout 15RM, 3rd workout 10RM, 4th workout repeat cycle with a little more weight.

You can't get enough work in for arms, abs, traps and other small muscles. You're tired after doing compounds and would have to workout 2 hours a day.

Several decades of bodybuilders who have succeeded at this have already proved you to be wrong with this statement.

Most people simply don't understand how to do a fullbody properly. Your not unique in failing at it, because you don't know what your doing.

Every workout i've ever seen has 3 to 4 exercises each day for biceps. My biceps weren't worked hard enough. I can't see how this is effective.

It becomes effective when you start working smarter, not more. Overexertion especially when new, does more damage than good.

You don't know what you are talking about. When I have time and I'm not at work, we can talk about this.

Fullbody workouts are complex and require some knowledge to implement them correctly.

Post the whole workout that you were doing, including sets, reps, and weights used. GL
