There are two basic types of training when it comes to muscle building: total body training and split training.
Total body training uses exercises that incorporate the whole body or else multiple muscle groups.
While split training involves focusing on just one muscle group at a time, so that you cover your entire body over the course of a week.
Although there are certainly advantages to total body training, most body-building professionals and experts agree that split training is the best way to build muscle over the long term.
This is because split training allows you to focus intensely on each muscle and muscle group so you can maximize the results of each workout.
