FAQ 26 If I split my routine which muscle groups should I train together

There are more possible body part groupings for split routines than I have space to write about. If you want to learn some of the variations, I suggest looking into some of the excellent weight training books I recommend in the bibliography. However, here's an important guideline:

It's wise to place a large muscle group and small muscle group together instead of all the large muscle groups in one session. For example, if you trained multiple exercises on legs, back and chest all in the same workout, it would be terribly exhausting. If instead you did back, biceps and abs, you would have one large muscle group and two small muscle groups, which is a more efficient body part grouping, energy wise. Check out the sample split routines later in this chapter to see some recommended body part groupings.
