    Does anyone lift big muscles twice a day? Like a morning and night routine? If so, do you lift heavy both times? Major muscle groups? And do you have problems with your CNS getting burnt out? Is this even a good idea?

    doing two-a-days is overkill for the average lifter. I can only think of a few scenarios where that would be the norm.

    I like it and will be going back to that style when I start my new work schedule hopefully.

    I lift twice a day but don't do two large muscle groups. Prefer to do a large and a small, for example, chest, then biceps/calves. Although I did hams and then quads today. Just make sure you're eating and sleeping a lot. Recovery is key.

    Yeah, I think I'll stick to one a day workouts. I am feeling drained right now even after a 1pm workout and its almost 930pm. Fuggetit. I'm no Timber.

    Too much and unnecessary for me. But I guess if thats the only way your schedule allows you to train then I would do what I can with it.

    i've thought about doing it for a month just to shock the muscles.

    morning: heavy weights 3 sets of 6.
    evening: lighter weights 4 sets of 15.

    Try to get some good strong reps in the morning and then come back for some exhaustion pump stuff in the evenings. But i don't know if it would actually be healthy or not. i'll probably never do it, but i've thought about it. Only worry would be that it'd make injury more likely to occur??

    Maybe consider doing it just for one bodypart for now... a weak one you're looking to bring up.

    there is no such thing as over training, just under eating .... look at dave goggins routine, guy cycles twice a day, runs once a day, then weight lfits at night, only sleeps 3 hours a day. Unless you have a manual labor job, IMHO many americans undertrain and are very seditary
