Not trying to troll in HVT group. Rather I'm coming off a biceps tendon tear that has my ortho-surgeon telling me not lift upper body for weeks and not to train it hard for months. What a perfect time to try 6x a week squatting. Except the A&P I took first as an emt then as a nurse always left me with the impression that (sarcoplasmic pump aside) damage to the myofibrils was, effectively self-imposed injuries or wounds and while diet and sleep can aid recovery you don't bounce back from a gunshot wound to the pec by...shooting it again. This passage has always been my general impression:
That's about a 6-10 day between training sessions suggestion. Obviously HVT systems scoff at that. 6-7xweek squatting would really pick my mood up as training is a passion. However I've never been able to find any medical article suggesting our body's ability to heal can be improved (different than increasing stamina or endurance).
Where am I going wrong and has anyone (as suggested in the quote by the doctor) trained doing a whole body workout only 3-4x per month.
Again, I'd love to squat everyday after reading some of the anecdotal testimonials on T-Nation--but there's a disconnect I seem to be missing despite reading Christian's articles.
