My split routine is like this, I workout each body part only 2 times a month, b/c I heal up really slow and I think its due to the fact that I lift pretty heavy and my body repairs slowly.
Ive been doing this routine for only 3 weeks now,
1st week --WED-- squat/leg day
2nd week MON-bench and tricep related lifts
" "FRI-DeadLift and other bicep related upper body lifts.
Now from this time I have worked my squat only 2 times be it that Im on the third week into the routine. But I only went from a 235lb squat( heavy set) to a 255 squat, these are the sets after my warm up and after these heavy sets I go do another set and then do a lighter set. Also before I started this routine I did a 205lb DL and last week I managed to do a 235 DL. Can my gains increase like this for a couple of weeks? BTW im 5ft 8 152-153lbs.
Ihave been lifting heavy a couple of weeks earlier but when I did every body part once a week I started loosing strength, I went from a 225lb max DL I hit once and no more after that one week, then the next it was very difficult to get 205 up. Then after skippin 1 week I was able to get 235. Sorry for the lengthy post, but I would like to know if these gains are any good and how long can they really keep going up like this till they level off?
I don't think anyone can really answer that. The only person who knows how long until your gains level off is your body, and well he's not really a person but yea you get my point hehe. If you enjoy it and are making gains keep at it.
Personally I would not enjoy working out each bodypart 2 times a month, and yes those are great gains.
Thanks for the help, I did try working out on a mon-wed-fri a week plan but I could not recover as fast and started loosing poundages.
I know exactly what ur saying bro, been there, wondered the same thing
rather than suffer the wrath of this board for posting an opinion that isn't founded on a study or bio-physical-science-what-have-you
I'll just say that I think what ur doing is wrong. But I have experienced exactly what ur talking about.
