    Is it bad workout one body part a day?

    back at home i use to do a split workout routine, doing both chest and tri, back and bi and legs and shoulder but since i came to college i can't seem to send that much time at the gym. so i started to workout a single body part a day, doing chest on one day and tris the next and so on. i was wondering how bad or slower this was for my muscle growth?

    had to quit when he became a mod
    fullbody 3 times a week, or a push/pull 4 times a week or upper/lower 4 times a week.
    Personally im a fan of the 3 times a week fullbody because you get frequency.

    First, almost any exercise is better than no exercise.

    Second, how long do you have to workout each day?

    Finally, what are your stats and goals (height, weight, body fat, years of training...)?

    Agreed. Body part split training like that has its purpose, it does depend on goals and experience. The majority of weight lifters though will not benefit from that style of routine.

    I agree with the above. Unless you're juicing or genetically gifted, focusing on one body part a day isn't going to give you the results you want.

    Military press

    All compound moves, all great mass and strength builders.

    Tricep extensions
    Leg extensions
    Leg curls

    All isolation moves... although they do have their place, but are far less effective at building mass and strength than compound moves.
