    Just wanting to know how often bodyparts should be hit each week. Im going natural, if you can really call it that, and im wanting to know is there a differenece between the larger upper body parts and the lower in regards to how much rest they should get before they have recovered?
    Any help
    Cheers

    It all depends on you personally, The aim would be to train and RECOVER as many times as you can. The larger muscle groups can take longer to recover, with me its legs. If I had to do it all over again I’d train 4 days with a 3 day split and the last day doing the first workout of the week again, 2 days off and start again.

    it depends on how hard you are training the muscles… you usually get muscle soreness which can last pretty long depending on the training session intensity, ive always been taught that you HAVE to rest a particular bodypart for at least 3-4 days if you training it reasonably hard… I usually train each bodypart once a week meaning 6 days of recovery but i sometimes think that i am recovered fully before then…

    does anyone else know anything about this subject? recovery is the most important thing isn tit

    I train to failure for 1 hour at a time and I include drop sets and x reps/ partials on usually 1 of the compound sets. I find my legs take 2 days to kick in then they really are hard to walk on for about 2 days or so while my chest, back, shoulders are only sore for a day, and that soreness is nothing compared to my legs. Im wondering whether on the upper body excluding arms if I should train them more often maybe 1st workout heavy and the second lighter, still intense but with higher reps, more blood work.Any suggestions how to incorporate this would be good.

    Muscle soreness usually kicks in around the 3rd day, Remember training legs uses around 70%-80% of your whole body(squats, deads)-shoulders and chest on the other hand around 20% so the effects soreness is never going to be the same. The general rule of thumb(this week 😉 )is train hard 6 weeks cruise for 1 or 2 weeks, I wouldn’t train light and heavy within a weeks session( just my preference) because it easier to gauge whats working and whats not if the boundaries are set straight ie hit it hard for 6 weeks and see what progress you have made.
