I know what you’re probably thinking: how can I get great results from only working out two days per week?
The simple answer: as long as you follow a good program (as provided in this article), work hard, and improve your performance consistently, you can get great results.
In fact, you may be surprised by how much you can achieve from strength training two days per week. After all, quality is more important than quantity.
But before we get to the two day per week strength training routine, let’s discuss . . .
Who Can Benefit from Strength Training Twice Per Week?
Anyone who’s busy. For those who are truly limited on time, two days per week is usually a great solution. You don’t spend much time going to, or in, the gym and you can still achieve great results.
The trainee who is getting burned out from strength training. I go through periods when I don’t love strength training. When this happens, I know I need to scale back the frequency of my workouts, immediately. If you’re not enjoying strength training but keep forcing yourself, week after week, and month after month, to keep training at a high frequency, you risk burning yourself out.
I know, because it’s happened to me. All of a sudden I didn’t enjoy strength training; all because I never scaled back when I should have.
