    So I started weight training two weeks ago and am currently doing a three day spilt chest/tricep, back/bicep and shoulders/legs. I'm going with someone who is knowledgeable aswell.

    Im starting training to improve my physique and overall stamina but these two are secondary to improving my strength for rugby and for myself.

    So I was wandering is starting strength all its meant to be, surely doing spilts will benefit as much if not more due to it having big compound lifts and then isolation lifts.

    So is starting strength worth it?

    Starting strength is great. You can do it in about 3 hours a week, and it will definitely make you stronger. Simple, easy to follow and effective.

    You HAVE to eat right on it. I'd say eating enough while doing it is more important than the routine itself.
