Thanks for the kind words honestly I’m a no body but thank you. As to what is being said I agree. If you do not max and I mean a honest max sure you can see progress here. Not as much as other programs in my opinion but none the less. Also, this is not a sport quite like Oly lifting. You need to be able to learn to and be effective at grinding. Obviously you shouldn’t be grinding every session but, none the less it needs to be practiced atlesst some.
When trying to squat every day even one grinder could really throw off the next days training. I think personally if he is smart about it he could so ok with it but I personally still think he could greatly benefit from a lower frequency and higher intensity. Atleast in my experience. But, def to each his own and there are multiple ways to go about training. I just personally don’t agree with this one.
Oh and a final note I don’t want to have to be in the gum 7 days a week. I enjoy spending time with my friends and family and doing things out side the gym. [/quote]
There are some guys at the top of the sport training both ways and with and without grinding (I’ve never seen malanichev, for example, grind any rep ever). Personally, unless you are going for real records or are trying to earn some money at it, I’d train the way I liked to train. I like squatting every day, I never feel completely destroyed, but I get the training high every day. It also works for me because I train at home and can make progress only training 30-45 minutes in the morning, leaving the evenings to spend time with my new daughter. And really, for the vast majority of people, enjoying training is critically important because consistency trumps inconsistency even on a more optimal program.[/quote]
I think thats something alot of new guys miss, training the way they want to train and actually enjoying it. They are too busy looking fo the perfect program, they forget they started lifting because they enjoyed it. I enjoy being in the gym, so I enjoy being there at least 6 days a week if not more. Is that for everybody? FUCK NO and I wish my damn OCD would let me take more time off. If I want to squat 7 days in a row, I will, because thats what I want to do and thats what Ill enjoy doing. Thats also why Ill never be at the top of the sport, but im ok with that too.
