    ART Topic of the Week - Lessons Learned

    Would like to hear what our vets remember add the biggest lesson they learned in their time with the iron.

    Of course it can be training, diet, AAS related but, I would like to hear life lessons to go along with it.

    So grab a seat, the cock to your left and let the circle jerk begin!

    Biggest lesson learned in my lifting career is overtraining. I started in the 80s training all body parts 3x per week and training 7 days per week with 2-3hr sessions doing 3-4 body parts per workout. 90s I got a little smarter and lowered it to training each body part 2x a week but still doing 2hr workouts.. today the old wiseman is down to 1x a week with 1hr sessions.

    If back in 80s-90s i had access to drugs and information like today I woulda been MUCH bigger back then.

    Does it mean itís better to train a body part once per week ?

    Good to see ART going again. This Should make for some good reading.

    I'm hoping oldschool joins this one. He's got more stories and experience than anyone I know.

    Just great, now I have to stoop down to participating in a circle jerk.

    I am right handed.........just so you know

    And we will need a pivot man, after talking to everyone Oldschool says he has the experience and volunteered for the job....

    More to come later.....

    1-2x per week depending on type split and training volume. For me I like high volume heavy weight once per week
