    I understand that based on the literature there’s mounting evidence suggesting that 2-3x a week frequency is better than 1x a week and more optimal. The programs here tend to be more 1-1.5x a week and 2x a week for the specialization programs. Is it because as you become more advanced you don’t need that high of a frequency?

    I hope you get my question. Because what I hear is that almost always going for a 2x a week frequency for EVERY BODY PART is more optimal. But I’m confused.

    I had this issue for the program I was following (anti flamingo) because there was one push session and one pull and 2 legs. I was not happy with the lack of frequency up too so went for the upper lower program (half body) and I’ve added an arms and delts day because my arms need more attention as well as my delts, so far It’s working better and feel more better than the specialisation program and feel I’m getting more balance in my training and frequency all around twice a week and arms 3 times over a 5 days split (upper/lower A, Upper lower B, Arms and delts) just grinding through 👍🏽

    The biggest issue with doubling up on frequency is that you are almost always going to leave something out or not give as much attention to a certain area

    Depending on what experience level you are at the upper/lower and full body programs are amazing because it gives you a little bit of everything. Keep in mind any specialization program is going to have the specialized body part in the routine more often than the rest… because well it’s specialized so you are giving it a bit more attention

    The further along you get in experience the less you will have to push frequency. Example, if you have great arms but trying to get your quads up to speed. You would ideally “take a little away” from arms and put towards quads

    Bryce and Joe do a MUCH BETTER job than I at explaining this. Looking forward to their response as well
