    ques for Bobo


    Hi bobo
    just read this article, it says training twice a day is too catabolic!
    I know there are a lot of variables involved like diet, experence etc. but given all things equal... is there any truth to this?

    "By lifting two times a day, you are setting yourself up for disaster. It seems that with every weight training session on a given day, the catabolic hormone response is amplified [25]!
    But overall cortical (the catabolic hormone) levels stay very low in people who go once a day, every day [15]. In fact, its been shown that people who incorporate 3 days of weight and 3 days of cardio gain more lean mass, and even with a negative nitrogen balance [26]. As much as a 4% increase in dry muscle. Not, fat free mass, not weight, not lean mass, pure stinking muscle. And a loss of 5% body fat ta-boot [27]."

    There are too many variables to make a blanket statement like that. THere are many things he is taking out of context.

    I will say for the most part there is absolutely no need to train two times per day. Most people will overtrain simply because they don't account for the increase in energy expenditure. People using androgens can certainly get away with it much more than a natural athlete.
