My apologies if this question has been previously answered but I was wondering if there were any recommendations for those of us who can only train 2 days per week. I am 38 years old and between work/family commitments and injury history (back, ankle and shoulder surgeries), I am limited in how often I can realistically train. It may be that the “jumbo template” in the 10/20/Life book is the way to go, however I am interested in any further insight on the topic. I love to train but also want to be around for the long haul and feel a 2 day approach is the way to go. Off-days are spent doing McGill 3 (a lifesaver!) and walks/other easy cardio. Thank you so much and look forward to your replies.
I have had lots of weeks where I can only train 2x per week. I am a firm believer in having the flexibility in training to make adjustments that fit your life schedule. I would recommend a little experimentation to monitor how you feel and how you are progressing. As we get older sometimes longer rest periods are a lot more beneficial for us to progress than more training sessions.
Hope this helps
It certainly sounds like the jumbo day will be best, but as Ken articulated, you should experiment to find just the right temperature to train with the most benefit and least cost to your body.
