Description

This 5 day upper lower split workout focuses on muscle growth through mechancial tension and muscle damage. In order to maximize muscle tension, this workout incorporates lower reps and higher weights. To maximize muscle damage, it also incorporates higher rep ranges that will create more micro tears in your muscle to facilitate growth. With a variety of exercises across the 5 days, this workout will help beginners cover their bases and optimize muscle growth in their early workout stages.
