I've been lifting pretty consistently for the past year and a half or so now and I'm continuing to make progress. I've recently started lifting with one of my new roommates and he's starting to get to me. I have been using a 3-day split and it's been working out well for me, but my roommate is a huge advocate of full-body workouts 3 days a week.
Personally, I do not like doing full-body workouts if for nothing else than they take too long. I like hitting my 50 minute workouts hard and getting out of there. With his full-body program, we've been spending upwards of 1.5 hours of lifting.
If I had it my way, I'd convince him to go back to my program (which we began with and did for 4 weeks), but it doesn't seem likely (don't hit biceps enough for him, I guess ). So I was wondering if anyone can explain to me the benefits of doing a full-body workout so that maybe I'll be able to accept his stubborn opinion. Otherwise, I'd love to hear any more negatives I can throw in his face so we can get back to my tried-and-true program!
Thanks for your time,
