Isn’t it kind of harsh to say it doesn’t matter at all?[/quote]
I suppose it depends on what you define “matters” as. They’re just different ways to structure your workouts, when you get down to it. I mean think about it man. Really look at it, that’s all it is. If you could clone yourself right now, and one of you followed one workout and the other you followed the other, as long as you got a lot stronger and ate enough, you’d both still be bigger. It’s not like one of you will be dramatically larger than the other, if food intake and relative strength increases are accounted for.
Besides individual preference, (either because you just like one better than the other, or one fits your recovery rate better, or one hits certain muscle groups with a frequency that you’ve PERSONALLY found to be better than other frequencies) it doesn’t REALLY matter.
