Why can't?

Why can't IST be consistent on if multi day breaks are better for you vs an every day routine?

If people here do not actually work out then why are you here

    7 is ok if you split it (PPL or brosplit) but 5 or 6 is what most people swear by for best results.
    3 and 4 day splits are for people who do not have time to gymcel daily

    There is no debate, you NEED rest at least one day two is best between lifts to build muscle, wear and repair is how it works PERIOD even if you are on gear. Anyone who says otherwise won't ever post body and is a dyel or cardio loving gay

    Cardio can be done on rest days, but only if you don't push yourself, best to probably just walk instead. I.E > I do 15-20 miles on rest days, but attempt 25 on normal days, etc.

    think of it more in terms of intervals and intensity.
    I train three days in a row, rest, two days in a row rest, and boom that is 7 full days right there
    My body doesnt know the difference between a Monday and a Wednesday but it does know a difference of first day training after a break vs third day in a row training etc

    Bro splits are stupid and for people who dont make gains

      I prefer 2-1, or 3-1 depending how things go. If you're training high intensity, high volume. You can be absolutely fried even on gear, so it's even worse for natties. The natties working out 7 days a week are giga retards lol, I understand enjoying working out, that's why I take gear but you're killing your gains.

    Look - most (genuine) experts will tell you that 4 times a week is about the highest frequency you should go. 5 days a week might give a tiny fraction more growth than 4 days a week, but for most people it's not worth it. Very few people would argue for 6 days a week and 7 days a week everything is just pants-on-head retarded, the illiterate village idiot.

      What's REALLY pants on head retarded is thinking your body will just explode if you don't take rest days. They are NOT essential. You only need what you need to recover, not some stupid ass arbitrary frequency of doing nothing. gay.

      Why did DYELs have this cognitive dissonance that training more frequently is going to negatively affect your development.

      More volume = more progress. 24hrs is plenty of time to recover

    You need at least 1-2 days between heavy lifts

    If you do PPL, you don't ever need to take a rest day as there's 2 days between working each muscle group

    If you do a full body workout 3x per week you can squeeze in an extra time per week for 2/3 of weeks of hitting each muscle group.

    Of course if we're talking an hour of full body 3x a week vs an hour daily of ppl, the latter will get you way more ripped

    But if you put in the same amount of hours per week, whether you split it up ppl or with rest days doesn't make all that much difference

    I'm convinced 6-7 days a week are better. It will give you superior intensity or superior frequency compared to other program structures.

    Obviously you can't do fullbody workout everyday your muscles need some rest, but you'd just do a bodypart split instead.
    This allows you to hit the muscles with more intensity than a fullbody 3-day split allows for, and also allows them to recover the same amount.

    For example with a body part split like this:
    >Lower body day 1
    >Chest/Triceps/Shoulders day 2
    >Back/Biceps/Forearms day 3
    >Lower body day 4
    >Chest/Triceps/Shoulders day 5
    >Back/Biceps/Forearms day 6

    Compared to
    >Full body day 1
    >Full body day 3
    >Full body day 6

    In the full body split you simply cannot work out as intensely, since you're working so many more muscle and doing way more compounds per session.
    Deadlifting, benching, squatting, overhead pressing, etc. All in one day. Multiple of these lifts will suffer in performance and therefore your gains will suffer

    >what if I don't do fullbody 3 days a week, what if I do a bodypart split or PPL 3 days a week
    That would be inferior to the 6 day bodypart split as well becase of frequency, you'd be working the muscles only once a week instead of twice. Frequency is just as important as intensity and volume, for some muscles more important than both (like calves and neck)

      Dogshit post, your own arguments can be used against you retard. If you're hitting chest and shoulders aand triceps in the same day, something is going to suffer. Full body routines are for newbie lifters, and ppl is the same.

        >If you're hitting chest and shoulders aand triceps in the same day something is going to suffer
        How? When you bench you're already hitting all these 3 muscles, they work together
        Just do Bench, Overhead Press and then isolation movements after. Nothing suffers
        And you can just alternate too, one day OHP first, the other Bench first so each gets more focus

        >Full body routines are for newbie lifters, and ppl is the same.
        They're for newbies because newbiews will makes gains very easily with suboptimal training. Not because it's the best way to workout

          no, because you're not hitting prs or rep maxes on one or the other. Try rep maxing out 315 on bench then fucking immediately switch to seated dumbbell press and do the same intensity. It won't happen, and your lifts suffer, that's why you split the days up.
