    I used to be a gym rat. Went to one gym in the am and the other in the pm. I was super fit but injured my foot running. I am trying to work my way back to once a day M-F. I do miss my old gym but won't go back because I outgrew it. A friend of mine still trains there. Her classes are the best in town.

    I'm very casual about it, but yes, I have a gym membership (accidentally gave me 50 years too many on it, hehe) and I lift weights there. I typically go about 3-4 times a week, though that'll probably become less regular when school starts again.

    most trainers do not know shit. it really is laughable how easy it is to become a "trainer".

    they should of told you "it depends...on your training experience, protein and supplment intake. Also it depends on the nature of the exercise (deadlifts vs bicep curls), your volume per workout, your macro workout plan for the year, your micro mini plans you may have planned etc...."

    they were taking the easy way out by telling you no more than 3 times a week. it really does depend. i had really good results working out full body 3 to 4 days a week...depending on where the everyother day fell...that included deadlifting from a deficit on every one of those days. it works for me because i work best with low volume and high frequency. i also did this as an intense part of a macro cycel...i obviously dont do that year round.

    I've been lifting weights since I was 19 (now I'm 22), but I haven't followed a systematic program. I'm very constant in my habit, however I do not feel the need to become more muscular than I already am (I'm a mesomorph). I can bench around 180 pounds, deadlift around 250, and squat around 250 aswell (I don't go over these weights b/c I workout in my garage, usually alone, and I fear that using heavier weights could cause me sudden injuries).

    I work out five days a week.

    Week 1 - I generally hover around 3 sets of 6 reps with a pump set of 25 after
    Week 2 - I generally hover around 4 sets of 12

    I rotate week 1 and week 2

    Monday - Chest/Tricepts
    Tuesday - Sprinting (Legs)
    Wednesday - Rest
    Thursday - Shoulders/Traps/Abs
    Friday - Back/bicepts
    Saturday - this is my day for hitting whatever wasn't hit during the week

    Alright! Where are you??
    Formerly very fit Now i'm in a state of laziness. Used to weigh around 125 kilos (a little more than 275 lbs). I worked out for 2-3 hours 5 times a week.
    Mixed martial arts 2 days, running/swimming/jogging etc 1 day, weight lifting 2 days. And a lot of food. Kept this up until I joined the army a couple of years back, then I hurt my leg a couple of months into recruit training and then I wasn't supposed to use my leg very much for six months. Then I lost a lot of weight and also became quite lazy.

    Smart. It's just an opinion, but according to how I work, the mind gets stronger a lot faster than the body does. That kind of increases the chances of injury.
    I did just that mistake once (in the beginning where the increase in strength is kinda rapid) and I had to pause for about a week. Being impetuos is kind of general to most ENTJ's I have encountered, so it might be a good idea to remain careful.
