    Hey Bryce and Joe,

    I enjoy doing high frequency splits and have thought of something that would result in me having two upper body days in a row. Would it be fine to hit the same muscle groups of the upper body back to back if volume is equated? Thanks!

    Thanks Bryce and Joe! But let’s say I was gonna hit 8 sets of chest and back on one upper body day, would doing 4 sets of chest and back each day, twice really that difficult to recover from? I’ve been doing it for the past week, and although that is too early to know if something works, I feel recovered and fine.

    Hi Joe and Bryce,

    I was wondering about this in relation to the new A/B full body program.

    The program runs A.B.rest.A.B.rest.rest, -so full body workouts on back to back days….

    Or have I totally misunderstood the programming and I should be putting in a rest day between each training day? 😅

    I have been enjoying the program immensely and progressing workout to workout while in a calorie deficit ;

    However, I did start with extremely submaximal (50%) loads due to coming back from a 40 day break post-injury. I run it A.B off A off B off.

    Now I have returned to maximal loads, should I put a day of rest between each working day or continue the program with back to back full body training days.

    Thank you!

    I’m not Joe and Bryce but I think you should the one that you enjoy the most, assuming you’re able to recover from it with proper volume and intensity balance.
