Fixedday vs variableday training

13.37 Most people probably find fixed-day training more practical and successful than variable-day training. Being locked into the seven-days-per-week life program also locks training into that program. Training every fourth day would mean, for example, Monday, Friday, Tuesday, Saturday, Wednesday, Sunday, etc. ^at is six different training days over the course of three consecutive weeks. ^is is impractical for many people. A fixed Monday-Friday, Tuesday-Saturday, or Monday-Friday-Wednesday-Monday schedule is likely to be more practical. But with fixed training days you can approximate ideal rest intervals. ^e Monday-Friday-Wednesday-Monday schedule comes close to training every fourth day. ^e big advantage of having fixed gym days is that you know your training days and non-training days, and can organize your weeks accordingly.
