 Post subject: 18 Days?
PostPosted: Mon Feb 27, 2006 9:18 am 
I read an article somewhere where someone claimed that he worksout each body part only once every 18 days and gets better results. Anyone ever heard of such a thing?

I didn't see the article, but have seen it discussed in other forums. A couple of thoughts though. It is a spin off of a very strict HIT stylke of routine ( very High Intensity for each bodypart), and it allows a great deal of time for recuperation. The split is usually a bodypart every 4 or so days apart. Well, IMHO, this may be useful for a very advanced bodybuilder that has built up to the point they can generate that much intensity, but I certainly wouldn't recommend it for a beginner/intermediate, and then only for those whose goals are simply to build a physque. For general fitness, recreational bodybuilding or sports training, I think you're much better off with more frequent applications. Lots of explanations of various styles in the weight training section.
