In the last debate, my arguement was that I trained with bodypart/muscle spit routines because I enjoyed training like this. This is still true. I didn't set out to be a 'bodybuilder', I just enjoyed training like one. Now, as I have got the training 'bug', i enjoy the results just as much, if not more, than the actual training. And, giving my lack of experience (strict 2 years), I must admit that you've got me thinking....
I am specifcially referring to this article http://drsquat.com/index.cfm?action=vie ... ticleID=22

I have read similar stuff, but never accepted that it might be true, being honest. So, being open minded, I would like to know more..
I have always trained to the theory that the more pain I can put myself through the better - that pain being commonly known as 'good pain'. Therefore, if i dont experience a lot of post workout pain in the muscle i worked, I am dissappointed...
Therefore, I have always thought that the more pain I get post workout, the more damage I have done and the more I will grow - providing I eat correctly.
Now i'm doubting that theory.
Are you basically saying that I can have a pain free work out, no pump, no burn, no post work out pain - when I say no, i mean no or mild pain - and still train effectively for size and strength?
I am not a beginner, would classify my self as intermediate i suppose - can someone give me an example routine?
And, if you can't technically 'feel' the effectiveness - as so many claim to do - how CAN you tell?
I would be willing to experiment, atleast for 3-6 months as it seems that is the only way I will know for sure...
