Weightlifters have a different training regimen to bodybuilders, but it hardly matters as they are both 'damaging' muscle to promote growth primarily in the first case, and strength primarily in the second. The body cannot repair the damaged muscle if you continue to damage it by excessive training. Bodybuilders and weightlifters will try to work around this by using splits, basically exercising/focusing on different [muscle] groups on different days, but there is such a thing as 'total' recovery because you are stressing the whole body.
A lot of young, inexperienced bodybuilders don't understand this and overtrain, then get pissed because they don't see the gains that they think they will get.
Again, muscle CAN ONLY repair properly when resting.
Good form(technique), quality nutrition, and quality rest are essential for any athelete.
This was actually what I was getting at. Training daily (more likely 5-6 days a week to keep sane and not burn out mentally) is quite possible in most sports if; program/cycle is controlled, nutrition is good, athlete is rested, the team around the athlete is supportive and so on. I know this from experience.
For ppl training "for fun" and already with an established good form, 6 days a week is still very much doable. Naturally with lower intensity and greater variation as the goal are different than from the athlete. 3/w with semi heavy weight should actually be enough while still having progress, when a certain level is established. Add walking, yoga, biking, running etc. as you prefer.
One thing I've noticed with my middle age is that you cannot store fitness for very long, but I need less exercise than previously. One session on weights in the gym a week and then a couple of 1-2 hour bike rides and that's sufficient to keep muscle strength and pot belly at bay.
I get the rest part, but on the day I'm doing abs, I'm resting arms and vice versa. So there is 48hrs between repeating work on each muscle group. Are you saying that's not enough rest?
what's your juice stack?
All natural biatch
Protein and multi and fish oil
Looks like tumors.
how much fucking fish oil are you taking?
Didn't know fish oil makes your head bigger.
1000 IU QD.
A little 'roid ain't hurtin no one
It don't hurt you now, but in 20 years time when you've got Desperate Dan jowls and all manner of ailments and are flabby all over, you'll remember back and say, "Man, that Lord Buckley was right in his assessment of 'roid and creatine abuse." Just warning ya' for your own good.
I know you jello
not to get too technical but creatine is not the same as steroids and is fundamentally impossible to "abuse". excess creatine just gets excreted via urine. all you're really doing is pissing away money if you take too much of it.
Weak delts bro
Its hard on your kidneys.
Back on the bike this week for the first time in months. Oof.
Isn't Pauly a doctah? He should know about steroids, no?
