Full-body: How long… till you drop?
After a few months of messing around with different exercises that focus on a single body part every session, I finally decided to move on to the real thing: Full-Body. In retrospect, the sense of achievement is definitely much higher than when you do splits, but it’s very stressful.
I doubt people can sustain it in the long run because every single bone/muscle/fiber/nerve in the body is shaking when you leave the gym.
Is there an adaptation curve to the stress induced by the full-body? If so, how long till my nervous system starts recovering faster (an order of magnitude will do just fine)?
Also, is anyone of you guys going full body all year round? If so, how do you manage that? How many days per week do you train and how long are your trainings?
Myself, I follow a variation of one of Chad’s programs every other day and keep my workouts under 90mns. Nutrition is top-notch and I get plenty of rest.
Thanks in advance for your valuable time and input,
