I had a great late night #workout . Killed some #chest and #biceps . Friday’s are what I like to call #fatarmfriday . I make sure to kill them #biceps and get a good pump. Today was heavy day on #chest . I been feeling great switching up my #workouts and my #muscles are growing. It’s helping me grow so much more. I constantly remind people and even myself to switch up that routine or you’ll plateau. Believe me I been there quite a few times. Don’t ever get too comfortable and don’t let your #muscles neither. It’s always about #growth !

🕵️Did you know the barbell squat is the best leg exercise for building muscular legs? Squatting comes with many benefits like increased flexibility, improved balance, increased endurance and most importantly builds discipline. Squats can be difficult to perform and draining, doing them consistently will improve mental fortitude and change your life. See below for instructions⬇️
1️⃣Stand with the bar on your upper-back and your feet hip-width apart. Keep your chest up and look straight ahead✅
2️⃣Begin to go down by flexing the knees. Try your best to align your feet with your knees, which can be done by keeping the torso upright or imagining your sitting back on a chair✅
3️⃣As you continue to go down push through the heels, once the upper legs touch the lower legs, drive the weight back up to the starting position✅
4️⃣Repeat for desired amount of repetitions✅
Squats can strengthen the lower back when done correctly. Keeping your spine neutral throughout the entire exercise is crucial, rounding and curving will stress the lower back ☑️

I am a big proponent of upper/lower splits. However, if you're brand new to lifting, I recommend you start with a full body routine for at least 6 months. As a beginner, I strongly believe your main focus should be building up a solid base of strength and getting your technique down on compound lifts. You'll gain muscle during this process and build a solid foundation for yourself for the future. These two workouts would be alternated with each other so that you’d be doing 3 total workouts per week.
In addition to these, you could also add 2 "optional exercises" which would be isolation exercises such as face pulls, shrugs, or calf raises. The optional exercises are there to hit something you feel may not be getting stimulated enough during the compounds. You'd also add some abs 1-2 times per week as well. This is certainly not the only full body routine you can do but just an example to give you an idea.
Like I said, as a beginner, your goal isn't to look like Mr. Olympia in 6 months. It should be to try to build strength and try to get good at the compound exercises. Once you do that, you'll be in a much better position to make continual progress for years afterwards.
