Meaning this, people always say to train certain muscle groups 1 time a week and maybe 2, but what if your recovered? i was doing strong lifts for a while but took a break and instead of benching only twice a week like strong lifts has you do i started benching every other day and seeing strength gains even while on a 600-700 calorie deficit. i just add 5 pounds every time and if i can’t do it that day i do it the next time usually and I’ve been doing this for 2 weeks now.
the reason why i started benching more is because i wasn’t sore doing a traditional strong lifts bench/dips routine and if i would add even more assistance exercises i would either be to wiped out by the end of the SL routine or it would only be more sore because of the fact that i hadn’t done those “extra chest movements” ad it would only be once. what I’m wondering is should i keep doing what I’m doing cause its working?
I’m young and the day after the gym i may be sore but barely and I’m always ready t bench without a problem after 1 full rest day. does any big benchers have opinions on this? in SL you squat every other day (except last 2 days of workout week) so why not bench press? advice?
