Twice a weeks?

  1. Twice a weeks?


    My following workout looks like this.
    Day 1: Chest/Shoulders/Triceps
    Day 2: Back/Biceps
    Day 3: Legs/Forearms/Abs
    Day 4: Rest
    Day 5:Repeat

    I like to workout each body part twice a week because its in my blood and i cant mentally handle one body part a week. Any one have any changes to make that i can make to this with keeping it the way i want. My dad wanted me to do Back/Biceps/Legs and take 2 rest days instead of 1 but i love working out so i decided to take legs on a rest day and work them out.


  2. Hey, if you can recover quickly enough to handle a twice a week pounding, then I say go for it! But you'd almost have to be super-human. lol Not too many guys can effectively hit the weights with significant intensity to grow and not only hit the same bodypart twice in a week, but only have one rest day.

    Try it for a month or so...then be honest with yourself to see if you are getting the results you want. I'd LOVE to hear how it goes. PM me if you have a journal; and if not, please consider starting one.

    I tried that, ended up up overtraining.

    Back and legs should, in all reality, have a day of their own. These are large muscle groups.

  4. I vary the intensity depending on what workout I'm doing, but here's my split:

    Monday - Chest/Shoulders/Triceps
    Tuesday - Legs/Back/Biceps
    Wednesday - Off
    Thursday - Shoulders/Chest/Triceps
    Friday - Back/Legs/Biceps

    I don't do a lot of volume for smaller muscle groups. Usually one day I'll hit a muscle hard, the next workout, go lighter, maybe do more iso work.

    Do abs as often as you can.

    Works well if you can work it.

  5. I used to do two a weeks and was so frustrated by my lack of progress that I used to train harder instead of doing less. It wasn't until I started a training log and also limiting my sessions to an hour each time that I really started to blow up... and half the time in the gym. More time to eat, sleep, and have sex for cardio.
