personally i think training 5 days in a row is too much for the average person posting in the beginners section, and your thinking about making that 6 days in a row. I wouldnt…[/quote]
Why assume everyone is average? why would a beginner not want to train as often as possible?
If someone is able to recover from training 6 days in a row then more power to them. You only know by trying, why limit yourself from the start?
As a beginner, if anything you can get in the gym more frequently as you are not lifting big weights and you recover quicker. You should make the most of being able to do this and beginner gains.[/quote]
What else do i have to assume? would you prefer i assume that he is advanced? or perhaps a raw beginner? he hasnt exactly given me much stats to work with so rather then ask the redundant question of “stats”, i assumed him to be of an average beginner, i figured this would be a good place to start. If i was wrong he can fix things up with me.
Well yes a lot of beginners can train often and make great gains, but being a beginner 3 full body splits or a 4 way upper and lower or 4 way push pull will provide all the stimulation they need IMO. of course not everyone is the same and yes you will see beginners making great gains with a 5-6 way split. But IMO 4 days a week is easily enough, its no surpirse then that many successful beginer programs are 3 full body routines or 4 day upper/lower splits as opposed to a 5-6 day split. Also his 6 day split is NOT providing higher frequency! his body parts (minus chest) are only getting hit once a week, whereas if he was doing an upper/lower or full body he would be hitting the muscles 2-3 times a week.
Now EVEN if he was to do a 6 day split he would be far better off doing legs/shoulders, chest/triceps, back/biceps, rest, repeat. This way he is hitting more muscles per w/o and is also providing more frequency. Though i personally dont belive thats the best method.[/quote]
Not to be a dick but you keep on saying IMO…but what is your opinion worth? Nothing without any pictures. Also, what you write shows that you are just regurgitating things you have read. I won’t start on the TBT vs Split debate.
EVERYTHING you have written you have backed up by saying in my opinion or…I personally believe…but this means nothing to anyone when you have no pictures and so that coupled with the advice you have given leads me to believe you have the physique of a small child.
@ the OP, As a beginner, you recover faster and if you don’t take advantage, you will not make optimal progress. I would try to get in the gym at least 5 times a week.[/quote]
Well yes, i have no pictures but surely that cannot dictate whether or not my point or opinion is valid. If you must know iv been sedentary for the last 2 1/2-3 months with first glandula fever then a pilonidal abscess which has kept me out fo the gym. Iv only been on T-Nation whilst having the condition so therefore why i havnt posted becuase id prefer to be back in full health and fitness before posting pictures of myself.
And yes of course what i have expressed my opinion and written from what iv read. How else do you expect me to get my information and knowledge? Surley much of what you know and advice you give is from what you have read?
