    Twice a day workout ??

    Does it make sense to workout twice a day? When would it make sense, or what would the benefits be?

    If you're an athlete, doing a lifting session early and then a cardio session later that day might have its benefits (i.e. having full rest days, which can be hard to fit in given that scenario). If we're talking about lifting weights twice per day, I think a good number of Olympic lifters do this. For natural bodybuilding, it's going to be tough to recover from two sessions per day. I guess if the overall volume stays the same, it could be doable though. I've never really considered it personally, because I'm fairly tired after lifting for 1-1.5 hours. If you can do it and recover from it, more power to you.

    At 5'10", 183lbs, you might be better off just allowing your body to recover and grow after the one workout per day though. That is if getting bigger is one of your goals. If you're more concerned with endurance over other aspects, I guess more training makes sense. I'm pretty sure a lot of MMA guys train for hours regularly. What's optimal always depends on your main goal.

    the more you workout the better

    the only limit is how much your body & mind can handle
    I used to lift.

    I used to see the gains.

    Then I developed spinal erector imbalance due to labor intensive employment involving repetitive core rotation movements.

    That, and a lack of knowledge about lateral muscular balance.

    It is every lifters worst nightmare to not be able to squat and deadlift.

    Aware yourself. Keep your muscles laterally balanced.

    Op, no..don't work out twice a day. The only reason you would be able to grow from this is if you are taking some hardcore steroids

    brah, if he works out more often he can cut back on volume

    for example, he can do 6 sets of bench one day per week or 2 sets of bench 3 days per week

    see what i'm saying?

    he can increase the frequency of workout sessions and reduce the number of sets per workout thus keeping the total weekly workload about the same


    on another topic, you can maybe handle more than you think without celltech and without being a world class athlete

    but you gotta find that out for yourself

    Ah, gotcha. If he splits his workout in half, he could do one in the AM and one in the PM. I was thinking he meant two full workouts a day.

    If you wanna split your workout in half OP, I agree with zakatak...but not two full workouts a day. Arnold did two a day, but he was getting serious pharmaceutical help
