    Question about intensity

    Whats up everyone? I've heard from a couple people that if you hit each body part at least twice a week, that the intensity on one of the workouts should be less than the other. Here's my split:

    Backs/bis/forearms on Mon and Thurs
    chest/tris/shoulders/abs on Tues and Fri
    legs Wed and Sat
    Cardio Sunday

    They were telling me to do the same routine, just reduce the number of sets (volume), but to keep the weight up like the first workout of the week. Thoughts?

    Ya you could change the volume of the workouts and do 5x5 one day and 3x10 the following workout.

    Thanks for your reply. I was thinking about reducing it even more though. Ex: first day of bi's i do 3 diff. exercises, 9 sets about 10-12 reps each. I was thinking about dropping it to 2 exercises and 4 sets 8-10 reps each.

    Thoughts?

    I don't think that the idea that one session has to be less intense than the other is really that vital, but you may have more success in eg having a heavy vertical pulling+lighter horizontal pulling day and a light vertical pulling+heavy horizontal pulling day for back, and applying this principal for the other days as well. It would give you some variation in the rep range you work in while still applying consistency in the ranges that you work in.

    Maybe you could do an upper lower split and spend only 4 days in the gym. Or maybe you know your body well enough to disregard this and can work out 6 days a week.
