Your right about Mikes recommendations, he had some clients train as little as once every 10-14 days, good friend of Mikes, John Little expanded on this with his Nautilus North Studies, after testing over 1000 clients in a bod pod, he found that average trainee requires 7 days (6.6 to be exact) before anything showed up (overcompensation) as the result of a workout. Some individuals he found required as much a 11 days.

He talks about it here...

Happy new year mate:)



cheers for that link Rob, interesting stuff, just browsing around the site now! i trained legs on sunday, did only 2 working sets. 1 set of static hold to total failure on leg extension then straight to leg press for one set of total failure and very nearly puked on the machine and felt pretty rough all day. my legs are still sore writing this on tuesday :lol: . probably including warm up the workout took about 10 mins lol, and the leg press was a pb. awesome :D i always used to be a free weights person, but im loving the way you can concentrate the work so well in specific areas with machines.


Hey buddy,

LOL,i know that feeling all to well:) H.I.T is not a pleasant way to train, but its whats required to best stimulate the body to do what it needs to do. Yes the machines are a very productive tools (certain one's), but free weights can be also. How are your joints, tendons and ligaments feeling with the extra rest?

joints and tendons are feeling spot on, and my back is getting better slowly, still having slight trouble with my upper back but nothing too serious. im going to see howthis goes for a while then i might even lower the volume a little more, of my upper body workouts at least as i cant do much less for legs lol. do you think im on the right track with legs one sunday, upper body the next sunday, then legs again the following sunday and so on? i know only i can tell really through progress in the gym and in the mirror, but i like your input on things!

how is your training going these days? still making progress/gains?


cheers :D

Sounds like a good plan Mike! Stay positive too, try to view obstacles and problems as potential opportunites. Sounds stupid, but that's what I do and it's amazing how much we worry about stupid stuff that really doesn't mean much in the long run.
