I can only do a half-hour circuit with no breaks, Rich is ridiculous.

While that is very impressive, doing full body workouts like that aren't very good for you especially if he's doing it more than 2 times a week

Your right. It's actually destructive to your body to do that if your not on steroids.

Pretty much how it works is when you weight lift your essentially tearing your muscles, and according to wolfs law they recover bigger and stronger. When you don't give your body enough time to recover, which is usually about 4 days, your pretty much ripping ripped muscle which hasn't had time to recover or grow. So you can actually get smaller by doing that.

What steroids do is allow you to recover much quicker so you can work out more and make quicker gains. Since I doubt Rich is on steroids, I think this is a horrible workout routine.

Forum Bets: 2-0

that's untrue if you don't get worn down, if your muscles are sore when you do the workout it is bad for you. But from experience, you can get in good enough shape where full body workouts become more about cardio than strength.

That makes no sense. If you're not sore than how the hell do you make any gains at all?

I agree and if anything he runs the risk of OTS and injury.

there is a large margin for how hard your muscles can be worked. You can make gains by pushing yourself hard enough that you work hard, but that your muscles recover by the next day. Over this summer I worked 12 hour days of construction, you start off being just dead the next day, but eventually when you are in good enough shape and your body becomes accustomed to its routine you can push yourself every day back to back. I definitely wouldn't suggest it to someone who isn't ready for it, because you could do yourself harm(e.g. tear a muscle).

Muscle soreness has absolutely no correlation with how 'good' a workout is or how fast muscle is being built or any of that nonsense.

You're joking, right?

Also, full body workouts are fine. In fact, it's been proven that 3 full-body workouts a week will get you significantly better gains than almost any other kind of split.

IMO, I don't believe anyone trains as hard as Sherk. Unfortunately, a lot of Sherk's training is pure conditioning. He trains his butt off, then comes in and LnP's his opponents. If he focused more on sparring, striking and BJJ, he could be so much more. Alas c'est la vie.
