    doing wbb1 more than 3 days a week

    hey my bud wants to do all 3 wbb1 days in a row, (back to back days) then take a day off, then do it again repeated. can you guys give advice explaining the pros and cons of this and offer any alternatives.

    he wants to work out a lot, so should he seek a different routine that can accomodate that?

    I think you'd over train pretty quickly doing that. A program that is designed to be 6 days a week would be much more appropriate because the volume and intensity is generally much lower.

    Those rest days are part of the routine. If you remove them, you're not doing WBB1.

    If he wants volume then have him do BGB.

    If he's been lifting on and off for years he's still a beginner whether he wants to admit it or not.

    In the end the routine won't matter much as long as it has compound movements and provides for sufficient rest. Also make sure he gets his diet in check.
