For the past six months I have been training 4-5x a week and hitting each body-part once.
I sorta hit my legs twice, since I squat one day then deadlift the other, and they have been growing the fastest out of all my bodyparts.
1-squat + accessory (leg press/leg curl/calves)
4-deadlift + accessory (back raise/abs/calves)
I have made good gains, i’ve gained 50lbs so far (about 30lbs or so is muscle) and over doubled the weight ive been lifting on all exercises. But… I’m not sure if i’m selling my upper body short by only training those muscle groups once a week.
From reading the Big beyond belief thread, and reading how some big guys had accelerated progress when switching to training body-parts 2x a week (waylander,MODOK,bauer etc.), I thought I might try it.
I was thinking of doing something like this:
I thought that this would help my upper body catch up to my lower body since i’d be hitting it twice a week also, and the extra training would help me burn off some of my excess fat (I’m really not fond of dropping my carbs or doing morning cardio).
Would really like to hear some thoughts from the big guys on this board, cheers!
