    one movement per day?

    would it be beneficial to do say

    mon: deadlift
    tue: bench
    wed: pullup
    thur: squat
    friush press
    sat: tbar row
    sun: rack pul
    mon:bench
    tue: pullup
    wed:squat
    thur: push press
    fri: platform dead

    etcetc or would this fry your CNS?
    you would only be in the gym 30mins and you would hit that movement hard
    I believe that when the body is strong, the mind thinks strong thoughts. Time spent away from the Iron makes my mind degenerate. I wallow in a thick depression. My body shuts down my mind.

    I warm up and stretch every time I lift, and I think that would really suck up my time If I did a routine like this. Plus, you also have to take into account driving to the gym and back each time, which would also suck up your time. Lets say it takes 15 minutes to warm up/cool down (plus get dressed out and whatever) each time you lift, and its a 10 minute one way drive to the gym. Before you've even picked up a weight, thats a 35 minute commitment your making to lifting, every day.

    As far as if its gonna fry your CNS, maybe, maybe not. I remember reading this article by some russian guy on here who said that eastern bloc powerlifters trained a movement 6 days a week, they would just vary the intensity. somedays they would come in and it would be a real easy day, just to get the muscles moving, others they would hit it hard, etc.

    I skimmed dan's article and it looked sensible. By the way, this is the same dan john thats wrote the great article on overhead squats.

    If you stuck to the basics (bench/squat/deadlift/pull-up/row/clean/snatch/jerk/OHP) and just did 1/day using some kind of undulating periodization program, AND THEN added in GPP/crossfit style metcons 3-4x/w, I think it would be an effective program at both increasing your strength in a wide range of movements, greatly improving your cardio, and providing a stimulus for hypertrophy...

    i think most people shy away from daily workouts because it doesn't fit in their week time-wise, it would take up too much time needed for work/family/school/ect.

    Reach down between your legs and find a pair of balls. That's what it takes to lift big weights. Genetics is the weak man's excuse for why he sucks at life. Don't be that guy - RhodeHouse

    I don't like the time factor and I think you need to rest in there, even if your doing less work per day. But I guess it depends what your goals are.
