Depending on your schedule, you could fit in a 3 day or 6 day a week sessions, and you can tailor it to fit around your lifestyle.
By going through the split cycle, whilst incorporating the all important core workouts, you will amass a great amount of strength quickly and safely, as well as seeing significant improvements in your seven primal movements.
