    ***is it better to do 4 workouts in a row for 1 part of muscles to get better muscle growth?

    which way is better for going muscles quicker

    1. doing 4-5 workouts for one part of muscles one by one in a row

    (I noticed when I do 3,4,5 workouts for one part of muscles in a row then when I do the 3rd, 4th and 5th workout that part of muscles is very tired so I can lift less weight, so i started to do 2 workouts for one part and then moving to other workouts for other part so the first trained part of muscles can relax so after getting back to to the 2 left workouts for the first part of muscles so I can lift more, friend told me that is better to do 4-5 in a row even I lift less it causes the failure effect and growth of muscles


    2. doing 2 workouts for one part of muscles, then 2 workouts for other part so the first part of muscles can rest and then get back to do 2 more work outs for the first part of muscles?


    EXAMPLE:
    4 work outs for a shoulder in a row


    or

    2 workouts for a shoulder, then 2 for biceps then 2 left for shoulder

    You need to learn the basic principals of muscle development, fantastic. Think about it, why would a muscle grow? The simple answer is, it is an adaptive response to repeated demand. It won't grow if you don't make extraordinary demands on it (that is, demand more of it than you would just sitting around or living your life as you usually do). How it will grow and how much it will grow depends on a lot of different variables: Your genetics; the kinds of physical demands you make on it; whether or not you give it proper nourishment and rest so that it *can* grow; and so on.

    You're making this way too complicated in your mind and that in itself is probably hindering your progress. Questions like you're asking really aren't *that* important unless you've already pretty much maxed out your genetic potential as a competitive body builder.

    All you need to do is pick a program (and there are thousands of them online) AND STICK WITH IT RELIGIOUSLY. Here, take this one for example:
    http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/wotw41.htm.

    Read it, understand it, print it out, organize your time, make workout sheets for yourself so that every day you go to the gym you know *exactly* what you're doing that day. Follow all the suggestions regarding workout, nutrition, rest, as close to the letter as possible for the length of time indicated. If you do, you will see progress. Unless you just happen to have won the genetic lottery or are taking steroids (and even then it isn't "easy"), you really have to push yourself--workout, nutrition, rest--repeat--for years!--to see HUGE changes.

    When you say "workouts" do you mean "exercise sets" or what? I think that most of us use "workout" to mean a whole session at the gym.

    Notice that the RJ "muscle building" workouts have multiple sets that target just one or two muscle groups in a day. (Except the first couple of weeks.) Even their "supersets" are two exercises that target the same muscles, back to back. (I used to always do opposing muscle groups.) Sometimes they have a heavy lift followed by a lighter high-rep exercise.

    Anyway, then you rest and recover that muscle group for a week or so.

    This is one of those things you need to read up on, and can't really be spoon fed.

    Start with learning about hypertrophy and go from there. It's best to read controlled studies than bro science.

    What you find may surprise you.

    bonaparts01 saidI hate guys who use multiple equipments at the same time in the rush hour when gym is full, I think those guys are super lame and then they expect that noone else will use them because they are occupied

    those kind of people should be banned from the gym




    I agree 100%. Nothing pisses me off more.

    I think if I were you I might focus more on a grammar workout.

    I recommend to you to get a trainer even for a few sessions maybe for a few weeks to teach you the basics. And from there you have to try and see what works for you the best.

    I personally have the best results when I split the body into as many days as possible throughout the week. But if you're short on time it's smarter to have a 2 day split or maybe whole body workout every time.

    Cheers.

    Oh yeah and +1 to the reply above me.
