Why Body Part Splits Suck

Here’s the problem: ⁣

🏋🏼‍♀️You go to the gym on Monday and only use your chest & triceps.⁣
🏋🏽‍♂️On Tuesday, you only work on your back & biceps.⁣
🏋🏼‍♀️Wednesday, you move in a fixed motion on a cardio machine for 30 minutes⁣
🏋🏽‍♂️Thursday comes and you work only your legs & abs.⁣
🏋🏼‍♀️And then your next workout targets just your shoulders (and maybe a last ditch effort for your embarrassingly small calves🤐)⁣

Then you go to play your sport on the weekends (maybe that long run or ride, pick-up game, round of golf, or martial arts class), and:⁣ ⁣
1. You feel so physically awkward 🤭⁣
2. You’re surprised at how out of shape you still feel 😓⁣
3. You’re dangerously sore (verging on injured) in some places 🤕⁣

When you work body parts in isolation, it’s not a surprise when they don’t work well together in real life activities.⁣

Plus, when you spot-target the big muscle groups, you often⁣
✴️Overlook the little stabilizer muscles that hold all the pieces together⁣
✴️make certain muscles (like the quads or rectus abdominis) disproportionately stronger than others⁣

Instead, try structuring your workouts around foundational movements:⁣
✅Push⁣
✅Pull⁣
✅Squat⁣
✅Hinge⁣
✅Core⁣
✅Carry⁣
and do something on one leg 🦵🏽 ⁣
