    Re: Contest prep weight training

    mobster and I have been doing podcasts on various pro bodybuilders and one pattern that is obvious is that split routines are the norm. usually its 4-5 day splits where they hammer a muscle group once a week

    split routines are something i recommend if you train intensely for that reason. total body workouts are good for those who are just trying to get back in shape or older people who are weekend warriors

    Just prior to a show, you are not trying to get the muscle to grow purce. You are trying to pump it with blood. Your caloric deficit will not permit it to happen.
    Your CNS is also being taxed. Trying to do a full body workout daily will most likely be counterproductive.

    You are correct by running split routines, just reduce weights closer to the contest
