4-5 days training for maximum gains?

why do people suggest lifting 3 days a week for max recovery?
Ive been doing this for awhile and my gains and strength were really nothing compared to when i started doing 4/5 days.

    this advice circulates around the internet decontextualized and it's so fucking annoying
    >3 days
    recommended for neophyte gays whose muscles haven't adapted to being exerted regularly with high load and require more rest for recovery wherein resilience is built
    >5-6 days
    optimized for intermediates who take advantage of the built adaptation to maximize >le gains
    >7 days
    roidtrannies or advanced

      in addition, it's under the assumption you mean for hypertrophy
      for ""strength""gays even advanced should take more than 2 rest days
      of course, that doesn't apply for any maggots taking recovery enhancement substances

    It depends on how you are training
    3 days is for full body
    If you're doing PPL then you'll be fine lifting 6 days a week.

    a little anecdotal evidence for you guys, make of this what you will

    for a long time i was working out once every two days. on off on off.

    each day something like,
    20 turkish getups 24kg (alternating side, so ten per side)
    weighted pullups 16kg
    60 kettlebell swings 24kg, sets of 20
    OHP 45kg

    then i switched to doing the same thing every day, even though i was seeing solid gains. after two weeks of this, i'm taking a day off because last night, my body seemed to be asking for it. instead of feeling fired up and completely capable, i was feeling a little worn out.

    i think rest days are probably just as important as working out to let your gains settle in before continuing, but how many you have is up to you and what your workouts look like

    4 days upper lower is the better split for most people.

    It's not about the days you dedicate to the gym it's about what you do. Dyels don't understand this so continue on

    Some things on this board never change. Fucking idiots in every thread.

    3 days a week is bare minimal to see progress unless you're like pretty elite.

    4 Days is optimal, best bang for buck ratio time spent/gained. You can do this fine. Min/Max is probably 6 days a week, 4 days a week is optimal for people with RL jobs and responsibilities. Students should be doing more because they have time or they actually really do not, i.e. crazy eng major or phd program track etc or professional school

    5 Days is sub-optimal but you are still getting bang for buck

    6 days is sub-sub-optimal and the benefit you receive from the extra day is minimal, but once again there's gains

    7 days is sub-sub-sub-optimal, likely gonna wear you down in the long run if you keep it up unless this is your career or on roids

      Seven and seven days a week is fine.
      I do kettlebells Tu/Th/Sa, weighted calisthenics Mo/We/Fr.
      Runs interspersed throughout the week depending on energy levels.
      If I'm overworked, I condense the workout, don't aim for a personal best, and just go through the motions, or do some light recovery like hiking or swimming.
      You don't need a total rest day every other day or two days. Athletes don't. Soldiers don't.

      I am a literal PhD student and also employed full time as a researcher. I spend about 2 hours at the gym mon-fri, less consistent with saturdays.
