Hail to the Dinosaurs!
Guy sent me an email saying he wanted
to do a four day split and asked whether
that was Dino Training.
You know the drill. Upper body pushing
muscles on Day 1, upper body pulling
muscles on day 2, and legs on day 3.
Rest on day 4, and then repeat.
I get that sort of question a lot.
"I want to do such and so -- but is it
The answer, like so many things, is this:
It depends on what exercises you do, and
how you train them. If you hit nothing but
bunny exercises and you pump til you drop,
then it's not Dino.
Pn the other hand, if you focus on the BIG
exercises and you train for strength and
power -- with heavy weights -- then maybe
That's because Dino Training is a state of
mind. It's how you think -- how you believe --
why you train -- and what inspires you --
that makes a Dino.
That said, let's go back to the four day
split. If it works, fine. If not, try an
abbreviated program. Same split, but work
3x per week, with rest days in-between the
workouts. That let's you train harder and
heavier -- and harder and heavier is what
builds T-Rex strength and muscle.
