    A/B split

    Making a new program trying something new this time around! Gonna program volume and intensity days.

    Doing an A/B split 4 times a week (so hitting every muscle twice a week)

    Anyone know if I should put the volume day or intensity day first? Seeing as I have a little bit more time to recover from second day I would like to put the most demanding workout on second day of that muscle group.

    Quick example: 10 sets of 10-15 reps for a body part on volume day and 4 sets of 2-4 reps on intensity day.

    You do realize that A and B don't mean anything to us until you tell us what they mean, don't you?
    I can tell time. Time cannot tell me.

    Formerly LactoseTolerant. I'm not very imaginative.

    Are you doing an upper lower split?

    As mentioned you need to give details if you want any sort of help.

    Upper/lower

    Does it matter though? 2 days a week per body part

    Well it does.

    If you were doing a push/pull that’s quite a bit different than upper/lower.

    Anyway upper/lower with volume and intensity days are fine.

    It’s up to you on which order.

    I’d say do strength/intensity days first and then volume the 2nd workout.

    I find it leads to better recovery vs doing Volume and then intensity.
