    Working out only 2 days a week?

    Can i work out monday and thursday full body, and still get results?

    If i did this:

    Standing millitary press: 3x5
    flat bench: 3x5
    shoulder shrugs: 5x10
    deadlifts: 3x7
    squats: 3x5
    skull crushers: 3x5
    dumb bell curls: 3x5
    calf raises: 5x8
    dumbbell flys: 3x7
    dumbbell front raises: 3x8


    All i have is an Olympic bench so i cant do much..

    Does anyone think this would work?

    Essentially it would work but you wouldn't see as much progress as if you we were working out more during the week. Just make sure you eat enough and mind your macros, it will work. I would suggest trying to get another workout day in there though.

    I've read that a lot of old time body builders and strength athletes usually only weight trained 2-3 times per week, typically 3 times per week. So yes you can definitely make good progress on 2 days a week if you're eating right and focusing on compounds.
