    If training instinctively but tracking and improving movements is this a smart way to train in your opinion?

    I personally have had leg sessions I have had so much soreness I couldn’t train legs again for 10 days. And some days when I train and could hit it again in 2/3 days time.

    By tracking the workouts and food but training what you feel is recovered rather then what’s on a session plan

    Thanks!

    Interesting that you brought this up as I use instinctive training approach myself to some degree. That being said I never do such drastic changes that it would throw me off for something like 10 days. And to be fair even though I am an advocate of hard training 10 days of debilitating soreness sounds kinda excessive. And also if there is that big of difference in recovery between your workout then I really think you’d be better off by having a bit more structured plan. But again if it works then I guess you are doing something right.

    Yeah well I’ve never actually done this. Might give it a go but I guess as long as you are training smart and hard every session you will make progress. And also I’m guessing there would be a massive temptation to train what you want to train and not what you need to train

    When I said I train instinctively I meant that there can be sometimes some change/variation within sessions (reps, sets, exercise selection/order) depending on how I’m feeling that day but the workout plan never changes.

    The only things I would be “instinctive” about would be frequency of training, and exercise selection (or skipping all together). And frequency isn’t really “instinctive” it’s just recognizing biofeedback to know if you need more time to recover. And within the session, listen to your feedback as well. If you’re not 100%, how are you going to hit a PR? Skip and exercise, rotate and exercise or skip the day all together. But if you NEED quantifiably variables. The notion that you can just train perceivably smart or hard and make progress…does not work long term.
