  • How many times do I lift heavy?

    I come from a conventional mindset for lifting. I wanna know if it's okay to do Push ups or pullups, etc. Every day at the gym.
    If not what do you recommend? I'm 18 and I've worked out for around 2 years.
    Thanks

    I lift things up and put them down.

    So uh... did you read the book? It lays it out pretty well in there.

      I'm no guru but shouldn't you allow for the different muscle-groups to have some rest/recovery time in between each work-out?

        Personally, I see nothing wrong with a few sets of pullups and pushups each time you go to the gym. By every day, do you mean 7 days a week? If so, you should probably take 1 or 2 days off for recovery or at least do something less taxing than your normal routine. If you give more specifics on your routine and schedule, we can offer more specific recommendations.

          Squatting, deadlifting, hip thrusting, bench/shoulder pressing, weighted pull-ups/push-ups, and rows are reccomended. Do them hard and better every session. :-) Add some sprints, burpees, thrusters, turkish get-ups, step-ups, lunges, or farmer's walk if things get too boring. Simple!

            I do a few push-ups at least 5x a week whenever I stretch, and pull-ups/chins every time I pass the parralel bars. But I do not treat bw excersises as heavy lifting, that's barbell 3x a week.

              Less is more. If you're able to lift the same weight every day, I don't think you're lifting hard enough!

                I do my heavy @ 3-6 day intervals (body by science routine--works for me). I do 10x 123 (1 Pullup-2Push up-3Squats) every other day (even on heavy lifting days) along with calestenics, jumping jacks, shoulder rolls, hand stands (assited and unassited) a bit of TRX, some floor crawls, arm walks, (Gorilla movments) and basic MA kicks. And since the gym I have up here just got some hula hoops I am going to add that! What a riot.. I was cracking myself up today. Plus they just finished the climbing wall so I will add that in also.

                Keep it fun!

                  The problem with the climbing wall, is you need a partner
