How Often Should You Lift?

How Often Should You Lift?

▪️As muscle hackers, we already know that hitting the muscle groups more frequently is what causes us to respond better. These common splits that you see hitting single muscle groups per week, rinse and repeat are used by enhanced athletes and are not quite on the same playing field as you or I.⠀⁣


▪️With that being said, I’ve cited a study here shown by Schoenfeld that conducted results in maximizing muscle growth over a four week period of time with healthy non diseased, non injured participants.⠀⁣


▪️The results showed “When comparing studies that investigated training muscle groups between 1 to 3 days per week on a volume-equated basis, the current body of evidence indicates that frequencies of training twice a week promote superior hypertrophic outcomes to once a week. It can therefore be inferred that the major muscle groups should be trained at least twice a week to maximize muscle growth.
