Training Intervals (POST 22)
March 12, 2012
Training Intervals: Back in the day we used to train Monday/Tuesday, Wednesday off, Thursday/Friday and have the weekend off. The idea behind this was to train each muscle group twice a week leaving a minimum of 72 hrs recovery time before training the same muscle again.
This is quite a sound way to train to maximise muscle growth because each part gets trained twice and there is plenty of time for recovery. Training each body part once is not normally sufficient to stimulate enough growth fast enough for most people as there is too much down time which could be put to better use. However I am training with ex world champion Patrick Nicholls and the kind of intensity that we are training at means there is no way to recover on time in the same week to go though the same thing again. So I am having to change my mind set and get used to a different way to train
