I'm not sure how to schedule my workout days. Should I be working on each muscle group separately (legs,chest,back) on separate days? Or can I combine some together. I need a suggested schedule. My goal is to be muscular and lean.like a basketball player or swimmer.6pack and tone chest wide shoulders

At my opinion,u should do it seperately because u will get tired if u do so many workout at the same time..remember bro,our body also need to rest to gain muscle..to get a lean and muscular body,u should do as many reps as u can until u reach the max hit..hopes my advices help u :)

You should always keep your muscles on red alert - they may not fall into a certain routine

It depends on your physical abilities and training goals: you usually start with a light to moderate full body workout as a beginner - two or three exercises/machines per muscle (group).

While keeping this up including increase of the challenge/weight or change of reps you will increase your strength, get used go the challenge and know how to do your exercises as thorough (meaning clean and perfect movement) as possible (important to prevent injury). You may also change the exercises/machines during this time or, speaking of gym, change to free weights for more complex movements which also challenge surrounding tissue and muscles.

Then, when you feel you want to still increase the challenge, you change to split workouts, meaning that you train not the full body each time but separate muscle groups:

A 2-days-split (not sure how it's called in English) means that you are splitting up the full body workout into two different workouts on different days adding up to a full body workout, e.g. Day 1: abs, glutes and back, Day 2: chest, legs and arms. This can be done up to a 5-day-split, where you work only on one muscle group per training day.

Effect of this splits: you are able to challenge your muscles to their absolute limit, thus increase the challenge to its max (e.g. you are literally crawling back home on separate leg days) and let this muscle recover (really important for effective and healthy improvement) the following day(s) while still being able to continue training (on a different muscle group then).

Good luck!
