I’m not really sure why mr. 185lbs-after-4-years-of-“training” is giving out advice to anyone on how the best way to train is, but I’m afraid you might be stuck inside a very limited mindset.
The fastest way to build muscle is to progress in the load used as much as possible, as often as possible while staying within the limitations of one’s own recovery abilities.
In other words, if you can do this and truly monitor your recovery appropriately, ride it out as far as it will take you.
Just remember to let your progress dictate the way you train, rather than being a slave to a specific training scheme.
i might be only 194 pounds, but i benchpress 315 for 2, squat 370, and deadlift 400, probably more than what you dream of ever lifting. And i did try training twice per day for 5 times a week, in the beginning.This method sucks. i was speaking out of personal experience.I think if you do not respect other peoples opinions, you are the one with a very limited mindset.Retarded, most likely.
A) Good work with those numbers, but:
B) That is not exactly something that others “dream of ever lifting”. I’m sorry man, but that comment of yours was a little over the top. Many reach those numbers fairly early in their training career.
C) This is bodybuilding, we don’t really care about people’s 1-3 rep strength. What can you lift for 8-10 ? Lifting this 1-3 times doesn’t make you big.
You presented your opinion before just as harshly as he did, you should not be surprised at his answer.
Not that I’m knocking you here, just clarifying things… [/quote]
A) Thank you, I appreciate it.
B)I am sure these numbers are not what you strive for, you have been training for quite a while, and i am sure your aim is much higher.I was directing my comments on the hater, who probably cant even unrack 315.
C)1-3 rep ranges have their use in bodybuilding,especially in power movements like the benchpress, but i can do 245 for 8 reps, if that is relevant.
Although i presented my opinion harshly, I didnt flame anyone elses opinion, i was just stating my own.
