    X Factor Noob Question!


    when using xfactor...how long should you give the body part you trained rest. does it call for longer rest periods because of the DOMS..? im a rook to this stuff so i need some help doin it right. wanna use it 100% so my hard earned cash isnt shot down the toilet

    What is your current split?

    I upped my calories, rested more between working the same body part, drank more water, and stretched more.... and yet I STILL had ridiculous DOMS on X Factor.

    The best thing you can do is to feel it out for yourself. Earlier on in the cycle you may be able to get away with the same split that you're doing...but the second bottle is where you may see the increased DOMS. I've seen studies that claim that working a sore muscle doesn't inhibit growth although common sense would tell you otherwise.

    Make sure to get enough water/food/rest and yous hould be fine... but again, post up your split and I can critique it for ya.

    day 2: legs
    day 3: off
    day 4: back biceps

    That looks like a solid routine. My best advice would be to stick with that routine if it's working but increase protein intake and overall calories. Drink tons of water and try some static stretching between sets.
