3 on 1 off works?
i just started the 3 on 1 off schedule.
do you think that is bad for the body? i heard you shouldnt have more than 4 days rest for a bodypart. I never did this before so i was wondering if anyone has ever tried it

i think that will over time just wear you out. You might like it right now but in a few months you will bet burnt out on it. I use to think overtraining was BS, until i actually did. I was tired everyday and never wanted to go to the gym, but then i finally go it in my head that sometimes less is better. I would say split the workout up and take 2 or 3 days off a week.

3 on 1 off is worked wonderfully for me when i began. i went from 166 to 187lbs in 3 months. i ate stupid foods like heaps of chocolate drinks and milk and yohgurt and bread and meats etc. not healthy but it worked for me. i didnt gain much body fat and my strength and size shot through the roof.
i did the exact split you said...
i havent trained in six months or so due to my training at work (army) but now i have some downtime so im getting right back into it and kicken into my 3 on 1 off again.\
good luck man

definitely gonna wear you out after awhile. Try it for now and see how it works for you, but you should probably not do that for too long. (Rest=growth)

Nickrizz: 3 on 1 off isn't bad but 6 days of heavy training a week is pretty exhausting (I know, every other week you get 2 days off but still....). If you are going to continue your 3 on 1 off, I suggest a split like Kdogg's:
This way there is 48 hours of rest between your chest/tri's and your shoulders. I'd stay away from doing any bodypart back to back days whether your isolating it or using it in a compound movement (ie. chest one day and shoulders the next. Obviously you use a lot of shoulders when you do chest. Thus, wait atleast 48 hours before you do shoulders by themselves). Sorry if I was redundant... Good luck!
