My Current Split: Building Muscle

I am just starting a gaining cycle and am really concentrating on specific weak areas. I thought I would share the new split I designed and some of my strategy. Maybe it will help give you ideas for tailoring your own split.

The areas I am really prioritizing are my back (width), traps, calves and abs. I decided to do something I’ve never done before which is hit those body parts three times a week (3x). Yes, my sessions are fairly long. I have the time and my Kaged Muscle Pre-Kaged and In-Kaged keep me pushing hard until the very end. The muscle groups that are only getting hit once a week I am smashing with high volume (20+ sets). The muscle groups getting worked 2-3 times a week will have less volume per session, but more total volume per week. I accomplish this amount of volume by supersetting the smaller muscle groups. I frequently post my full workouts in detail on my
