    How many exercises per session

    I go to the gym between 5 - 6 days a week, Which i spend between 1 hr 30 to 2hr 30.

    This includes 25 mins of cardio per session, But i wasn't sure how many exercises i should be doing per muscle group each day ( i do one muscle group each day)


    thanks

    I recommend 12-20 sets for larger body parts (chest, back, quads, hamstrings, shoulders), and 8-12 sets for smaller body parts (biceps, triceps, traps, calves).

    I also recommend pairing a large body part with a small body part. So chest/triceps on one day, back/biceps another day, et cetera.

    So what your saying is you split up that 12 - 20 sets into lets say sets of 4 per exercise?

    Typically yeah. I do 4 sets per exercise because that's what I prefer. Some people do three sets per exercise.

    I have a weird training split so that I do about the same number of sets per session:

    Day #1: calves (3 exercises - 12 sets) and quads (4 exercises - 16 sets)
    Day #2: chest (5 exercises - 20 sets) and triceps (3 exercises - 12 sets)
    Day #3: back (7 exercises - 28 sets)
    Day #4: hamstrings (4 exercises - 16 sets), biceps (3 exercises - 12 sets), and forearms (1 exercise - 4 sets)
    Day #5: shoulders (6 exercises - 24 sets) and traps (2 exercises - 8 sets)

    So I personally have a lot of quirks. I like to do calves before quads because it helps warm up my legs. I like to do a lot of volume for back because it's such a large bodypart. I do hamstrings and biceps on a separate day because they were two bodyparts I was neglecting. Plus, now I have balance as I do 28-32 sets per workout.

    Basically, just keep making adjustments in your training plan until you find one that you are comfortable with.
