I am currently completing a period of slightly lower frequency with hypertrophy as my main goal. I am just following this as abit of down time from an intense period of high frequency training with the intent to return back to this in a couple of weeks.
My question is: Would you ever consider training full body 4/5 times a week using only 3 or four exercises that you want to improve with methods which you have found to be the most effect at training these exercises. To clarify what I have just said above, I was thinking something like this:
Workout: repeated 4 days per week-
- Deadlift Capacity (as explained in ‘deadlift, friend or foe’)
- Back or Front squat
- Push press
- Olympic lifting complex or 6 weeks to super hero style complex
I would then add one day per week where I would hit other areas such as chest, rear delts and back or would take a day off and then repeat the cycle.
How would you perform the squatting and push press to prevent over training?
Can you see this working from a strength and hypertrophy stand point or is it just too much to recover from?
A lot to ask but thanks for any response CT, appreciate it as per
