    I stick to a full body routine even though it might not be the best option on a regular basis based on experience.

    I would prefer the full body rather than the split. Currently a beginner since it has been almost 3 months but a friend of mine has been doing it for almost a year. I am able to handle the splits plus full body workout but my friend can't. I am just curious since I think its because I have maintained a proper diet while she has an on and off diet plan. I wonder could this actually be due to diet or some other reason.

    I did SS for 2 years when I started getting serious with weights again 6 years ago. I saw great results with a full body routine 3-4 days a week.

    I’m back years later after falling out of the gym for a while, and I keep getting stronger with my full body routine.

    Would recommend full body (with maybe a few isolation exercises for weak points) until you’re entering intermediate training levels.

    Was going to make a thread but thought I'd ask in here first - unsure if against rules.
    Gyms back open in UK this week...So deciding what to choose.
    Settled on Full Body as what I've done in the past and what I was running last time I went.

    Opinion on this routine that I found online, cant link due to lack of posts:
    Full Body Workout 1
    Bench Press 3 sets x 5-8 reps
    Lat Pulldown 3 sets x 10-15 reps
    Squat 3 sets x 5-8 reps
    Leg Curl 3 sets x 10-15 reps
    Dumbbell Shoulder Press 2 sets x 5-8 reps
    Incline Curl 2 sets x 10-15 reps
    Triceps Pressdown 2 sets x 10-15 reps

    Full Body Workout 2
    Incline Dumbbell Press 3 sets x 10-15 reps
    Seated Cable Row 3 sets x 15-20 reps
    Leg Press 3 sets x 10-15 reps
    Romanian Deadlift 3 sets x 10-15 reps
    Lateral Raise 2 sets x 15-20 reps
    Dumbbell Hammer Curl 2 sets x 10-15 reps
    Overhead Triceps Extension 2 sets x 10-15 reps

    Full Body Workout 3
    Cable Crossover 3 sets x 15-20 reps
    Dumbbell Row 3 sets x 5-8 reps
    Leg Extension 3 sets x 15-20 reps
    Leg Curl 3 sets x 15-20 reps
    Bent Over Lateral Raise 2 sets x 10-15 reps
    Preacher Curl 2 sets x 10-15 reps
    Lying Triceps Extension 2 sets x 10-15 reps
    Against something like Fierce 5, I've ran that quite a while ago.
    I was running the one above for a few weeks before they closed again, I did enjoy the variety.

    But just wondering if Fierce 5 Novice would be better to start with?
    Consider me a beginner I've never made solid enough progress to say otherwise lol

    Looks fine..
    Most novice or comeback routines are just flavour anyway.

    Get to it. Just make sure youre aim is to progress.

    Some would say it’s too much. I say if you can recover from that many exercises per session and progress every week, go for it. It looks good to me.
