Default Please Help, Muscle and Brawn full body workout 1

Gidday There,

Hey I'm just looking for a little help with the Muscle and Brawn full body workout 1. Its easy enough to understand but I would like to train more frequently than 3 days per week. Can I train workout A on Monday and then do workout B on Tuesday and then have wednesday off. Then do workout A on Thursday and then workout B on Friday and then have Saturday off, and so on and so on. Basically I want to train on a three day cycle indefinitely. Is this wise ? I have done it for a couple of cycles like this now and it seems to work .

I also have trouble with the upright rows due to having a torn rotator cuff tendon. I'm just wondering if there is another exercise I can swap it with that wont aggravate my shoulder but will still add value to the workout.

Thanks in advanced, Nath.

i would say you could but as the weight gets more heavy it would take me alot more time to recover thats my experience running A/B fullbody 4 times a week and i would burn out very quickly.

Picking a routine that you have to "modify" right away is not the best move, unless you are experienced enough to know how to do the modifications. Of course, if you were experienced enough you wouldn't be asking the question. There are so many good routines out there it's pretty easy to find one that will fit your needs. You want a four day routine, then look for a four day routine.

Full-body routines are designed for three days a week because your body grows and gets stronger while you rest. There is no need to destroy your body two days in a row if you did a good job on the first day. Let it rest, recover and grow.

If you feel the need to workout four days a week, may I suggest a good push/pull split or an upper/lower split. There are a ton of good four day routines out there and we'd be glad to help you find one that is appropriate for you.

I would recommend that you use that shcedule for an upper/lower routine or a push/pull routine to maximize your recovery.

Gidday everyone, I appreciate everybody's input and the saner part of me hole heartedly agrees, However the mongrel weightlifter part of me keeps telling me to lift more and more. I come from a Oly lifting past were I was lucky enough to have a full time coach . I never questioned my coach and I never really understood what program I was doing nor did I ever understand why I was doing it. All I really ever picked up on was that we be training Bulgaria Style, witch meant Squats 5 times a week, Power cleans or Snatch or Cleans or whatever, day after day, week after week until some thing gave out. ( normally a knee ) Then I would squat and lunge and not go as low as normally on my oly lifts. All though it was known as Bulgaria style it obviously wasn't, it was loosely based on there style at best. Long story short, My hole body would get hit from every angle 5 consecutive days a week. The resole I am telling yous this is just to give yous some history on me, but not try to convince yous that I am a weaker , fater version of superman. The reason I like this muscle and brawn workout is because I train at home these days and I only have a big power cage and some bars and plates, and a selection of kettlebells. Most workouts I have seen require all sorts of other stuff that I don't have. So I guess if anyone out there can point me towards a better program that I can flog myself 5 days a week I'd be most grateful.

Many Thanks, Nath.
