    Question Quantity or Quality?

    The title might seem untrue to the question. But lets say during the course of 1 year two people have been working out every day, the first person destroys the muscle and on some days he cant lift because of soreness, but the second person only does small amounts of reps throughout the day resulting in less intensity but more weight lifted overall so at the end of the year he's lifted 10,000 more pounds. Is the amount of weight lifted directly proportional to gains?

    Too many variables to consider.

    But probably the 2nd

    I'm just guessing this person has a crappy workout...

    I'm guessing this person needs a job if breaks up his workout throughout the entire day...

    By that analogy bricklayers would be stronger than powerlifters. They arent. High volume at super low weight builds muscular endurance, not strength or hypertrophy. Reference marathon runners.

    This is neither here nor there, but 10K pounds of volume difference is miniscule. That's less than one workout for an intermediate.
    I can tell time. Time cannot tell me.

    Formerly LactoseTolerant. I'm not very imaginative.

    Quality and good technique will trump volume and average intensity.
    Intensity is the key here.
    If you reved up the intensity with volume there is good chance you'd over train even throughout the day.
    The body needs recovery and it can vary from person to person but if the worked muscle doesn't have time to just rest and grow it won't get larger.
    Shorter intense sessions are similar to Mentzers heavy duty type training using high intensity over just two or three sets which is a proven system that works for many.
    You might experiment on yourself and try both over say a six month period.
