    Muscle group twice per week


    Anybody know of any good routines to hit a muscle group twice per week? I had before, but was training 6 days a week with it- it was a tad too much. Im looking to continue putting on more size. Ive always hit legs twice a week. Wonderig what you guys recommend. I appreciate any advice

    What muscle groups are you looking at hitting twice per group? Because some get hit twice per week on a normal split anyway (i.e. Abs, biceps, triceps, legs (to a degree if you deadlift on back day) etc.

    it'd be nice to hit chest and back twice, or at least alternate hitting either of twice. I deadlift on quads day along w Romanian so I guess I already hit back twice

    Training 2+ times a week will not result in overtraining if you can program and periodize sensibly. Hell, even if you can't, you probably won't even reach a phase of overreaching

    "if you can program and peiodize sensibly" a lot of people have trouble with this
    someone who is used to training once a week with higher volume may have trouble dropping down the volume to train it twice a week

    I agree with this. I usually do a few sets for each group.

    Upper & Lower each twice per week (2 upper sessions/2 lower sessions). Split up for heavy & light sometimes and adjust the reps and sets appropriately and eat good and sleep...
    Do the cardio on my off days sometimes or 15-20 minutes after I lift. Just got back on this routine.
    The 5 day a week split only works if you are lifting hard. Some people ain't hitting it hard enough.
    People need to try different routines & see what works best for their bodies.

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

    Oh & make a strong focus on TUT & negative...

    Slow going down gives a good burn & control it. Some people focus so much on just getting the weight "up" drop it slow and you will be using the muscle a great deal vs. just lifting the weight up & should see a nice increase in gains.
