I have a workout program that is working well so far. I was wondering if my results would increase if i doubled my workouts? and if so if i should split this into a morning(9:00) and afternoon (3:00) workout. Thanks
What does the routine currently look like?
6'2 - 105kg (231lb)
lifting twice can be tough on the body - make sure you work in your rest days so you don't get injured
I have 2 rest days a week.
And todays workout consist of:
Hang clean to front squat 5x3
V-grip pullups 4x8
SL squat 3x5
BB complex 4x5
I don't really see it increasing your results. Well, maybe for a very short window, but after that I doubt it. I just tried using a twice-a-day routine and I got a quick growth spurt and then it just leveled off. I would run the two-a-days for two weeks and then give it a break for a week. I really don't think it was worth all the extra effort though. Just get in, get the work done, and start recovering.
If you want to workout twice a day then divide your example day in half and do one half in the morning and the other half later at night. You just cant be stupid about it. It sounds like you're thinking, "If once a day works well, then twice a day would work better? Well then how bout 3 times a day or maybe 4!!"

What if I double the workout in one gym visit? Woudn't my testosterone levels lower?
Don't worry about that idea regarding testosterone levels dropping after a certain length of workout. The bigger issue is usually just doing too much work period. If your routine has so much volume that it takes hours and hours to finish then it's probably overkill for most people. The problem isn't necessarily the time it takes, but the fact that it has more volume than the trainee can handle.
If what you're doing is working, don't change.
