Success With This Training Cycle?

Have any of you had success with a training program that calls for 2 weeks of training 5 days a week followed by 2 weeks of training only 2 days a week, then switching back to 5 days a week or something similar?

I think its great to switch often, keep the body guessing, but make sure you’re meeting your goals. If you aren’t getting stronger, or bigger, or whatever your goals are, then you should probably try a different approach. i’ve got a habit of trying to train everything at once. That never works.

If you’re trying to mix in another sport on the days when you lift 2x per week, it sounds pretty solid. I guess the only way to really see how effective it is, is to try it for yourself.
