Youll get yes and no here from people, there are benifits to both. key is to makr sure your not working the same body part twice that day, and ideally not lifting twice in a day example my two a days are usually morning cardio abs and some bag, evening light cardio warm up and lifting.

Im a believet in two a days, if you can get them in go for it, split it like that and youll notice more energy for both seeingbas your body had recovery time for round 2

Everyone needs a healthy way to relax, mine Church, and two wheels, a stretch of winding road, and a pipe loud enough to give me headaches and make squirrels explode. (Fixed curtousey of PWRMAD)

Nothing is impossible the second we say ill try your already admiting you can be defeated, and the second you say i cant or its to hard youve already failed.

I don't think so. By the time your body warms up and you start actually working out the "short" workout is over.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

Depends on what your goals are. For aerobic/cardio work, a single longer workout is better, because you raise and maintain heart rate longer.

For anaerobic work, like lifting, there is a lot going for 2-a-days. Just make sure you take the time to warm up properly, or you will hurt yourself due to cold muscles.

Cardio, maybe,

muscle building, no. For muscle building, you shouldnt be touching the same muscle in a week, much less later that day, once its torn down, it needs to heal, which is when growth occurs. Healing time is different for everyone, but a good rule of thumb is 5 days minimum.

Absolutely right. However, a carefully built workout program that works a different set of muscles with hi-intensity in each workout could benefit from 2-a-days.

For instance, a program where you lift 3x/week in 2-a-days, and do cardio 3x a week in a single longer workout:

Mon Morn: Quads, Calves 30 min workout (not including warmup)
Mon nite: Biceps, triceps 30 min workout
Tuesday: cardio - swimming 1Hr of laps
Wed Morn: Glutes, Lower back 30 min
Wed Eve: Neck, abs/obliques
Thursday: Cardio - run stairs 1H
Fri morn: chest, shoulders
Fri night: upper back
Saturday: cardio - Running 1Hr at moderate pace (6-7 min miles)
Sunday: off

Combine something like this with enough protein, proper nutrition, and sleep and you'd get in good shape pretty fast. Although it's hard to get most ppl to work a body part hard enough once a week to really burn it in these short workouts, it can be done.

With this kind of program, you hit each body part once a week.

Craig

that could work for 2 a days, but there are some hormonal issues to deal with. Hormone, protein and amino acid levels etc will dip after the first workout. I'm not sure they would be able to support the second workout. just not sure you would get your optimum gains, rest is very important.

Yep, you couldn't stay on this kind of workout for more than 3 weeks. Four if the guy's in great shape to start. And you'd need a pretty massive supplement program to keep things going. And about three weeks of recovery afterward. While possible, I wouldn't advise it for most.

It's more usual to hit one body section/part per week in traditional 3 or 4 workouts a week, with light cardio on the off days.

Do whatever works with your schedule. Forget all the other "scientific opinion" crap.

Can you tell I like uncomplicated?

For now I'm "one a days" during the week and maybe "two a days" on the weekends if I have the time.
