    I like to throw, squat and pull heavy things for fun.

    @fury

    I want to put this in context. My one son earned a football scholarship to a U.S. university. (We are Canucks... so you can appreciate that is a rare occurance.)

    He knows now that overtraining cost him a professional career.

    Eight years later He just put in his best season ever as an amateur rugby player. He did that by training less but by training more.

    He reduced the strain on the muscles by applying muscle growth stimulation only once a week and then allowing the muscles to adapt. During the week He also worked out lightly on rugby training and then increased the tempo as the week went by (and the muscles were healing from the muscle growth stimulation) until game day.

    On game day he was hitting it at a physical and mental peak.

    Just a suggestion for you to consider and apply to your own needs.

    You may need to set up a "game day" once every week or two and then design a program to hit "game day" at peak performance.

    31" thighs here and I'm hoping they stay that way. Most people here want to look like Mark Sisson, some don't, me included. I like being big, sorry.
    I want to be big too. I have wide shoulders and a large frame and I always looked underfed so I plan to pack some meat on bones when I can afford a gym membership again (have to rely on bw exercises now).
