It depends on the intensity

To get them to grow you need to break down the muscle, feed them and let them recover. If you're not allowing them to recover they won't grow. If you don't stimulate them to break down the muscle they won't grow, if you don't feed them they won't grow.
So figure out how long they take to recover to figure out your split.
The less intensity the more per week you can train. The more intense the less you can work them out per week.

Simple stuff ^^^ and good reminder. I spend too much time passive recovering rather than actively doing so.

Been a little bit since this was posted on. Been getting after the last two weeks here. We are now just about 2 months out from the big day! The fiance has been doing 9week Beach Body Extreme (I botched the exact name, but its close haha) at home which she has been kicking butt with! Had to mount some equipment for her, but other then that she has been fully motivated all on her own which is great. On my end the updates aren't as major - workouts are consistent with my usual and have been averaging around 6 days a week in the gym. Calorie intake is slowly dwindling, probably sitting around 180-185ish. Looking pretty mean, goal might be 175lb pre wedding.

Hope everyone else has been keeping up with their goals!

I was 192 at New Years. Now 169 and been Ďbulkingí for a month. Great balance as Iíve maintained weight but dropping BF per my wayze scale. I only use that for relative comparison. Not real results.

Iím in a 3 day split with high volume supersets and higher calorie load. They wipe me out and had to increase calories. But staying lean. Very pleased.

Need more info haha. 192 at new years, so many he dropped below 169 at the beginning of March and has been bulking since. Regardless, a solid bit of weight loss in a short period. Nice job man!

Haha. Yes. Went from 192 to 169. Now Iím reverse dieting to increase calories slowly to not gain fat but gain muscle and strength. Bulking isnít really the best term

Staying around 199, feeling solid, no more la fitness, but to the Y, which is much less crowded and way easier to work out at here... also "getting at it" lately and although I have lost some strength in some areas during a 3 week break from working out, I have decided to continue to decrease the use of supplements.

In my opinion, good, they're not needed for progression. Diet, exercise, and sleep - that is all there is to it.

I have continued working out, but 2 weeks ago I had a week where I just wasn't eating too much and having a drink each night lol. Dropped about 10lbs. Gained about 5lbs back this week. So I am sitting right around 180lbs. Tux will be showing up for the wedding in a week here in which I'll have time to send it back if something doesnt fit. About 30 days from the big day so we are in crunch time!

Yep, gotta kinda try and figure it out. John Meadows has a great video on set amount and training intensity (Mountaindog1 on youtube). in my opinion, the best and most knowledgable trainer out there. and he makes it easy to understand.

You may also want to just count working sets. I never count typically my first two movements in a set. First is usually a warmup for some bloodflow and the second is usually a lighter weight to kinda feel out the movement and form. So if you see me do 4-5 sets, in reality I'm counting 2-3 as "real" working sets that have the weight and intensity to really work the muscle.

This has been my 1st full week back in the gym in a month. I tested positive for Covid on 3/13 (mild symptoms only - sore throat & muscle ache that lasted 3 days). I was over that after 1.5 wks.

My wife and I were then headed to Mexico for a wedding 2 weeks later, so she didn't want me in the gym at all, so I couldn't be a carrier and give her something. In order to get back in the country, you must now test negative 72 hr before your flight back to the US.

So I ran every day instead. I got down to 198lb. (I'm 6'2.75" and usually avg around 210ish). I had started bulking before I got COVID and been building strength/endurance. Lost it all and am having to start back at square 1 lol. I'm around 202 now, so getting there. Was going to aim for a lean 215 for summer, but I'll probably just aim for 210 & be happy with it. Ugh, such is life... 1st world problems

Got to 226 this year wasnt very committed to bulking. Thinking im gonna go leaner try and maintain 215ish by eating same and upping activity/cardio. Easier for me to be skinny so gonna go with it for a while.
