I was thinking about switching to working each area for a whole week and then doing the same for the next one.
Week 1 Legs
Week 2 Back
Week 3 Core and Abs
Week 4 Chest
Week 5 Shoulders
Week 6 Biceps, Triceps, forearms
Doing the same thing working out 4 days a week, but isolating the exercises to one area for a week before moving on. I'm only planning on doing this routine once. So once the 6 weeks are over I'm going back to my normal routine where all body parts are worked in a week. I just felt like this might allow me the ability to exceed the plateaus I'm experiencing in my lifting and allow me to take it to the next level.
What say you? Under a regime such as this would it be cause for overtraining?
That's how bodybuilders workout. Are you trying to become a body builder or get better at hockey?
