I get approached by people all of the time wondering how many days of the week I workout. When I give them the answer they are usually shocked! The truth is that I only workout 3 days a week maybe 4 at the most. Each workout session on last about 45 to 55 minutes at the most. Training frequency is an important variable in one’s program. As a strength and conditioning specialist I will tell you that frequency does not matter as much, as long as, you properly manage your intensity.
When I talk about managing your intensity I mean that you don’t want to train the same muscle group at the same high level of intensity and volume everyday. Now I’m not saying that you can’t train the same muscle group most everyday, because the truth is that the fitter you get you can train the same muscle group most all days of the week. The key is to not fatigue your nervous system.
If you have read some of my other articles then you know that all the kettlebell training and olympic lifting that train my clients in are all for stimulating the nervous system. This is how you produce a high level of both strength and total-body conditioning. I have often been told by some people that they workout 5 or 6 days a week, however they cannot perform a kettlebell snatch, barbell power clean, or one-arm turkish get-up with a kettlebell. Its because they are lacking the proper element of training intensity and overall knowledge. If they included the same program that I implement for my clients and athletes there would be no way that they would have enough juice left to squeeze out a full 6 days a week of training! I’m just making the point that your results are all about training EFFICIENTLY, not how many days a week you walk into the gym.
