Beginner Dumbbell and Bodyweight Workouts for Chest, Back and Legs you can Do at Home

I rarely ever perform split training routine. Despite the fact that most of my workouts are full body, I understand the advantages of split training:

  • Bring up a weakness
  • Less risk of over training
  • Better focused since you’re only training a few muscle groups at a time

There are many kinds of split training routines, but the best one in my opinion is Push/Pull/Legs

On the push days, you will work your Chest, Triceps, and Shoulders. On the Pull days you will train your back, biceps, and some shoulder work. Finally, on the legs day you will train your lower body. I’ve put together a beginners split training program:
