For the average, drug-free lifter I’ve found the sweet spot in training frequency to be between 2 to 3 times a week, or every 3 to 4 days.
- They’re extremely strong, and need more recovery days off in between.
- They have a ton of injuries, and can’t handle the joint stress.
- Psychologically, they get bored training a muscle group more than once a week.
- They’re prioritising specific areas and putting some body parts on maintenance.
