Recently I have cut down on training days due to being very busy at work, which is a good thing I guess, as I’m self-employed. The drawback of this that it left me with little spare time, besides doing what has to be done (cooking/cleaning/etc.). I read an article by Dan John about training twice a week and that he still got some solid gains from it. So far my training days consist of (day1) bench/squat as main movements ramping to one top set and (day2) bench/dealift ramping. After each top set I do 2 back off sets of the same movement (except for deadlifts which I replace with RDL). After that, depending on how much time I have to spend I do 3-5 accessories (always a pulling movement, few sets of biceps/triceps and something shoulder related - lateral raise, face pull, …).
I’ve made good strength gains, my joints feel better than ever and I have a lot of energy going into the gym so my workouts are fantastic. Physique-wise I think my diet could be better with a bit more preparing in advance.
Now my question is: should I keep on benching twice, or switch one day for OHP? Or should I switch it up entirely by having one low volume strength day and one higher volume hypertrophy day?
I’d like to hear your thoughts on this! Thanks.
