View Full Version : Will a once-a-week workout reap results?

Right now things are so busy where I work that am finding it more and more difficult to get away to workout. The last couple of weeks, one full body workout was all I could do. Since I know that's all I can do for the week, I work my ass off in the gym to try to make up for it. I *think* I am continuing to see growth, but sometimes I'm afraid it's just wishful thinking. Will working out once a week do anything for me until I have more time to do more?
P.S. I eat a low carb diet with an ocassional carbup; take whey and soy protein and glutamine every day.

Even if you are working out one day a week, you will see progress. Whether you do this for 30 minutes or an hour, you are still making gains. Not everyone can workout two or three times aweek (or with some...more).
The results may not be as quickly seen as doing this three times a week but that is not the point. You are doing this by working hard in getting the most out of your schedule and getting healthier/ stronger.
Oh, I am sure the results are there to be seen. It is not just "wishful" thinking.

If that is abslolutely all the time you have to give...then continue with once a week.
I have done full body workouts routines in the past with minimal results. They are exhausting and it is tough to give every muscle group your all.
Add short spurts of cardio daily if you cannot get a full session in a few times a week.
