I’ve got a bit of a dilemma here. My job is taking me to Paris for 2-3 weeks at a time. My only access to any kind of weightlifting here is BW exercises, or whatever I can rig up with my suitcase in my hotel room. The hotel gym is going through renovations, and all they have are some cardio machines.
Since I’m going to be able to return to the States for 1 to 2 weeks at a time during this, I’m wondering if I might be able to structure my schedule for a planned effort at overtraining during that time? I know there is some theory behind this, i.e. Poliquin’s super-accumulation, but I’m wondering if anyone has had any success doing this?
Basically, since I go 2 to 3 weeks without any access to weights, I want to figure out the absolute best way to make the best of those 2 weeks I get with a gym. Would this be worth a shot?
Also, does anyone think there would be any bad side effects to repeating the planned overtraining each time I returned home? (essentially 2 overtraining cycles every 3 months, with BW and whatever I can do in between)
Food and rest really won’t be issues for recovery, so I don’t think those should be the limiting factors.
Thoughts? Does anyone have any better suggestions?
