    Hi mate,

    You are probably better of splitting it into a split routine instead of a fullbody.
    An example could be

    Monday- Chest*Triceps
    Wednesday- Back*Biceps
    Friday- Legs*Shoulders

    This way your workout sessions can be shorter and therefore focus on the muscle groups more.
    There is nothing wrong with fullbody workouts, but it could be good to get yourself used to the idea and routine so that when you progress you will understand how a split routine works.

    Here is a good beginners split routine:

    And here is a beginners workout ( Fullbody )

    Consistency is the key

    Thats good, Not only that, but with that 3 day split means you can hit each muscle hard once per week, and giving you maximum rest for the muscles between sessions.
    Good luck

    Hi mate,

    Give the split a go if you want, the overall work in the split isn't too much anyway, perfect for a beginner.
    As i mentioned before its superb as it is conditioning you for split routines, where-as in the future you most likely will be using them if your goal is to build muscle size.

    The fullbody is ok too, But it's up to you what one you want to start one.

    If it were me i would be using the split, days are arranged and it gets you into the habit of working 2 muscles per session.
    Consistency is the key

    I don't really get why theres full body workouts?? I just thought i'd do it because I didn't realise there was a split beginner workout and I thought full body must be for beginners
