I've begun to start following a fair amount of pro's recently, and noticed they mainly train very similar during their "offseason".
Many, if not most, train a weekly day split..
I understand it's true that our bodies grow outside the gym, but why do they use such little frequency?
Is it that their supplements or major food intakes keep their body growing between workouts the entire week?
On this board the recent trend seems to be that training a muscle as often as possible(once recovered) is optimal, yet some of the biggest guys only hit say their back or chest once a week.
Anyone have any input on this?
