    Training Frequency

    I have been training Tues/Thurs/Sat every week. My routine is full body. That schedule is giving me Sunday and Monday off. I want to lift more. I don't see a point in having back to back rest days. Can I just do one day on one day off and forget about the fact that there are 7 days in a week? Would that impact my growth/progression? For example, week 1 I train T/Th/S, week 2 I train M/W/F, then week 3 back to T/Th/S and so on and so forth.

    You can do full body workouts every day if you manage your workload.

    Easiest way, spread a 4 day or 3 day program over the 6 in manageable chunks, and you probably want harder hitting exercises near the start of the week.

    I would generally recommend capping at 6 and always keeping that 1 non lifting day. Can always be a gpp, cardio, hiking etc day. Or the day after your usual drinking day in my case xD

    You'll have to be smart about what you prioritise on each day as you wont be able to do a huge amount of sets to work every muscle group fully every single training day

    Thank you all. So if I have this right I can split up my full body over 5-6 days, but then I'll need to reduce my intensity. Is that about right? Would my training improve more quickly doing daily, lower intensity full body workouts than doing higher intensity every other day?

    I'm still not sure about my original question either. Can I do away with the Sunday/Monday back to back rest days and just alternate every other day without negative impact?
