For peak fat loss and health, exercise is should be at the top of your list. Which workout is better for me, full body or split? There are several opinions on which is better for you, so I'll go over some here.
A full body workout is covering the majority of muscle groups of the body and a split concentrates on certain groups on certain days. Pretty basic.
The good thing about full body workouts is that their more balanced, working all the muscles 2 to 4 days a week depending on your workout schedule. This is a more natural workout like real life. If you've got fat to burn, this is the way to burn a lot of calories and lose the fat quickly.
Full body routines are great for beginners and if you like fat burning cardio workouts also.
On the negative side, full body workouts can go into over training the body or working out too hard one set of muscle group. You'll need more rest after this. You also have a little bit more intensity with full body. The good thing is if you miss a routine it's not that big of a deal with a full body workout.
A split body routine can target certain body areas better and this is good for advanced bodies and lifting professionals usually. Remember if you're a beginner, you can't just target certain areas to lose fat, you should be on a good cardio routine. Split routines are easy to change around or use new exercises.
The overall fat loss and calorie burning is less on a split workout and it is not a good idea to skip days as this imbalances your workouts. Split workout are generally done by more advanced bodybuilders or models. If you are having trouble doing a full body workout you might try the split routine and see if it works better for you.
You should evenly space workouts whether full or split so you can get enough rest between workouts. Your muscles need this time to heal, as they have been stressed. This is why the morning after you feel sore at times. Ensure you are drinking enough water also. Staying hydrated is very important to any workout routine.
When considering a workout program choose one that is best for your schedule time limitations and the goals you want to accomplish. Weigh the pro's and con's of each program and find out what best fits your needs. It's always recommended that you get a doctor's check up before starting any exercise routine.
