I’ve done both of these programs, and I don’t believe the first one is bad, even if you’re trying to lose fat or put on muscle.
Everyone has different goals. If you’re just starting out, I would prefer you to train a single body part a day so you can learn how to activate that one body part properly. If not, you can hurt yourself, so why not learn the proper form.
When I first started lifting, the smarter and more experienced lifter in the gym would show me one exercise they would want me to do that day, and it was the only one I was allowed to do until I knew exactly what it was working. I was young and hard headed, but I listen because I wanted to look like them, that's how I learned to build a foundation.
As I got better, they started giving me two exercises to complete, and the rest was history. Now I feel like I’m a beast when it comes to figuring what angle works best for whichever body part I’m trying to bring up using those same principles.
If you consider yourself an advanced lifter, you should mix it up and add up to 3 body parts a day. When you get to that stage, you have to start switching up because your growth will be a little slower compared to a beginner.
Try not to be overwhelmed by all the information out there; the foundation will always be the same. Build on it, and your growth will be limitless.
I will be dropping some knowledge on my Facebook group, “Beast Ready” to help anyone with there goals. You have to apply its a private group, and I don’t want just anyone to join.
