    Is it better to work one specific muscle group per session, or mix two groups together.

    I'm sure other more experienced guys will chime in, But I always read that it's a good idea to do 2 or more groups in a day.
    Usually you do groups that work together anyways.
    Like you do chest and triceps together because of lot of chest excercises (like bench press) use your triceps anyways. So you do em both.
    I usually did chest/tris on one day and then Biceps and Back on another.

    In general, they say it is better to work out your entire body each workout, two or three times a week. The reason behind this is because you're getting more workouts per week in for each major muscle group, and also when your body is distributing protein for muscle repair it doesnt know to send more to you legs than your arms on a paticular day, as an example.

    Unless you're on on major gear, or want to die, I dont recommend it. I do a 4 day a week body split, one major mucle group per day, so I hit everything once or 1.5 times a week, and that is more than enough. Several body builders I personally know have used that technique for years and they are fucking jacked, I have completely transformed my body using the 4 day split too over the last year or so since I started that routine.

    I forgot to toss that in that you usally do less per day on a full body rotine, but I figured it was kind of assumed. that being said, I'm glad to here you're on a 4 split, cause that just helps make me look more credible :p

    What is the new "christophers routine"? I never even checked out the old popular one (bill star variation right?) but I've heard alot about it over the months and years.

    compound movements build more muscle then isolation movements. i'm guessing from the title you mean beach workout. with that said, it can be implied you have no base to work with and will ignore all good advice given to you because certain routines don't have a day dedicated to biceps.


    get on a base building routine, lift heavy with an emphasis on compound movements, eat a shitload, continue doing this for a few years. then worry about individual muscle groups
