Answered by Jonathan Glick on Aug 26, 2013

Answered by Jonathan Glick on Aug 26, 2013

It is generally best to not lift two days in a row, unless you are doing a split routine and working different muscle groups on consecutive days. There are exceptions to this rule: it may be appropriate to complete a light, high rep, muscular endurance based weight workout after a more intense,...

Answered by Jonathan Glick on Aug 09, 2013
