Here's some food for thought...
Typically, routines have something like this
Do we really need that two day rest? I think we are cutting ourselves short. Why should we limit our body's capabilities like this? What I am proposing is to continually go to the gym and have a rest day with no two day rest. The only time we should is if we feel like it.
This would be more beneficial for the intermediate lifter as they have been accustomed to the soreness from the gym and know when they have over worked.
Anyone agree with me here? Only rest when you feel like it, otherwise just keep going.
I have been doing ripptoe's and have done away with the two day rest and am having great results. I still just started it (a month) and have only recently needed a two day rest. This way, I can push my body to be able to handle more frequency.
