I have a question regarding using the layer system in a 2-day split. I have used a 5-day split before to great success (Bench, Squat, Trap Bar DL, Overhead Press, High-Pull). However, I play rugby and the conditioning, practice and game commitments make it difficult to train more than 2-3 times per week.
I was wondering if it is possible to do both an upper body and lower body main lift on the same day. Have you ever prescribed a version of the layer system where a trainee does 2 main lifts per day, two days a week? If so, how would you recommend doing this to maximum efficiency?
I have used a two day split before that looks like this (but not with the layer system)
Bench Press/ Squat
Deadlift/ Military Press
Thanks in advance for any direction you can provide!
