"Bigger and stronger" compared to someone following a proper bodybuilding/weightlifting-program? No, doubtly. I have worked a place where the people lifted 5 meter tall tree trunks day in and day out, and none of them was very big. And that was after 25 years of doing it.
I'm not trying to be a dick, but you know nothing about bodybuilding yet. Why? because you only have 5-6weeks of lifting under your belt. Your not qualified to give out advice. For now, read, learn, and when you put on some muscle and gain some more experience, then you can help others with bodybuilding.
Most people who work are not eating healthy meals day in and day out, refrain from the local bar at night, and try to do the job harder every day. They also tend to do one movement. Like people who work in a warehouse who have to lift boxes up all day. Eventually the weight of the boxes tops out, your upperbody is not getting much of a workout. Look at what muscles people are using and you will see that body part tends to be stronger than others. Your first day you will be sore, eventually you won't it'll be easier.
Now if you said they lifted 5 meter tall tree trunks and and a centimeter every day, and did not stronger that would be different. Or different movements.
Amen to that! I think I have an explanation for why the two days in a row thing works for you, because you aren't goin all out the first day so you have to finish it off the second.
If you are explosive the first day, there would be no reason to do it again the next day. Owell, all I know is I find it hard enough to seperate things like triceps and chest and squats and deads, let alone do the same thing twice in a row!
i definitely wouldn't hit it split-style two days in a row.
On leg day, i'll add in about 3 sets of 8-10 reps of a dumbbell chest press, and the next day i'll have chest day, along with maybe a couple sets of deadlift and some pullups. I'll take a rest day, then do back day the following day along with a couple sets of squats. I've been growing this way.
This split-total body hybrid thing seems to be working for me. More gains in 2 weeks than I had in the past 2 months.
Ditto. Some guys could get away with this in the beginning (even though their gains will suck) because they are moving less weight (they're still weak and puny). When you start moving more weight your nervous system is stressed more needing more time for recovery.
If you feel you need to train the same muscle the next day either you didn''t train it right the first day or your feelings need adjusting.
depends on what your goal is. If it is brute strength, then it may help. I read a lot about Pavel and his power to the people approach and have experienced it first hand, getting stronger than I ever have been and quick. So, if you are in a hypertrophy mesocycle, then not so good. Strength, maybe
