How do I design a personalized weight-lifting workout to build muscle?

To build a resistance training program for muscle building, select 3-4 exercises per muscle group and divide them into 3-4 workouts throughout the week. Following a split routine allows for rest periods for each muscle group while still staying active. For example:

Monday – Back

Tuesday – Legs

Wednesday – Rest

Thursday – Chest

Friday – Shoulders and Arms

Saturday – Sport

Sunday – Rest

Each exercise should have 4-6 sets of 8-12 repetitions.
