    i've read somewhere that mixing up your routine - like adopting lifting twice a day for 4 days (for 40 mins excluding warmups) can stimulate muscle growth you've not been having with your current routine. It recommends a one week gap between weeks of doing it like this, and no more than 2 weeks before a different routine.

    My question would be: i've seen a dramatic drop-off in my gains (lean) - should i try this method in order to see if it works? (i'm going on a 3 week holiday from work soon, and wanted to seee if anyone notices any gains when i go back to work - without opening my mouth)???

    Any recommendations/ tips?

    smh you won't gain any noticeable amount of muscle in 3 days, the most you can gain is about 0.5 lbs per week, so it's gonna take you at least 12 weeks to actually notice a difference

    If you're hitting your first one hard, your second sessions is going to be awful anyway.


    If you mean hitting different muscle groups at different times of the day, I don't think there's a problem with this but it may not be optimal in terms of getting blood, endorphins, testostrone flowing in one session but not the other etc etc

    Training two times a day is a concept as old as bodybuilding itself but was popularized by Arnold more than anyone.
