Reading your body

Hey all!

This Board is an awesome source of information. It has been great to learn from others' experiences and expertise. There is a vast number recommended training programs, nutritional programs, cycles, etc. across the threads. One of the challenges, however, is most of these are examples that have worked well for some, but were not effective for others. What it comes down to is being able to read your own body and maximize what works best for you.

Particularly with training programs, what tricks do you have for reading what works best for you? How do you determine that right balance for what is helping you push beyond your current limits without being counterproductive?

I know it's important to change up the training program when you hit plateaus, but for me I've always found my best gains to come with 2-3 days on and no more than 1 day off, regardless of the type of training program. Some will say that is not enough time for recovery...and maybe I'm reading the wrong things.

Thoughts?

Gotta find first and execute what works best for you over time and then adapt as you age- and your hormonal levels fluctuate- make necessary alterations through diet exercise and supps. Everyone different. Reps sets diet etc. Trial and error.

Yeah, I definitely hear you. But what are the indicators that you've found the most effective program at any given time. Do you find that achieving pure exhaustion or full muscle fatigue/soreness is the ultimate goal, or does that indicate you've gone too far...breaking down muscle instead of building? Does the lack of muscle soreness indicate full recovery and you can blast that muscle again...or have you waited too long at that point, in order to push growth beyond status quo? What have you found to be the most effective during your biggest gains?

Makes sense...but many recommend training each body part once a week with an every other day training program. After the most intense workout, my soreness is gone in 2 days (at most 3)...and I feel flat a week out. Seems like I can up the frequency.

But then there are the other body systems...and many say that overtaxing them (due to no rest days) can be counterproductive to overall growth. How do you monitor and balance that? Do you push through a day that you feel tired...or do you read that as your body needs a break? I'm inclined to push. :D

I see a lot of posts about growth on the "training eod" program. Are there any out there that are getting their best gains training 5+ days a week? Or even some 2 workouts a day?
