Quality Over Quantity
Should you train 3 days/wk? 5 days/wk? Every day? Is more training really the answer for you? The first question you have to ask yourself is how many days can you CONSISTENTLY train per week? Then, take it a step further and ask yourself how many days can you CONSISTENTLY train with 100% EFFORT per week? It's important to challenge yourself, but don't be unrealistic. It's more important to make an honest COMMITMENT. It's even more important to omit the overnight success mindset. If you're a father of 3 children all under the age of 10, each one enrolled in sports/activities, with a full time career, own your home, your spouse also has a full time career and a dog thrown in the mix... Is it realistic to think you can fully commit to training HARD 5 days per week? Your best solution to a scenario like that is to focus on QUALITY over QUANTITY. ==>Quality over Quantity<== For some people it's more effective to train less frequently, which will result in higher intensity workouts and enthusiasm to attack your training goals. Your effort during workouts has a massive impact on your results, regardless of your goals. If you commit to training everyday, but don't have a lifestyle that supports that kind of regimen you'll end up going through the motions, finding excuses as to why you can't maintain the commitment, lose enthusiasm and possibly forget what your goals are.
