@Robert. Well you’re working each muscle once every 5 days as opposed to twice a week. See my diagram in point 4. If you get stronger and can make progress like that, fair enough. I’ve tried it. I was actually weaker as I wasn’t fully recovered in time. It depends on how many sets you do. You’d have to reduce the sets per body part to make this work. Therefore I’d rather reduce right down to 1-2 sets per body part and train the whole body Monday, Wednesday, Friday. You can stimulate growth and still be recovered this way.
– your recommandation on daily need of protein is not very accurate, since 1- your are confusing kilograms and pounds, 2- your recommandation per Kg is very high.
1- you multiply LBS with a daily consumption per KG: as a result the daily consumption for a 190 pounder guy is of 270 g of proteins, which is quite ridiculous… it means eating more than one kilogram of beef a day, or 2,5 Kgs of eggs, namely 30 eggs a day ! 🙂
2- you suggest /Kg, which seems to be your personnal recommandation, how do you make it? It can be much lower for some people (/Kg), and much higher if you are a big runner (2g/Kg), all this depends of your activity.
Different dietary proteins affect whole body protein anabolism and accretion and therefore, have the potential to influence results obtained from resistance training. This study examined the effects of supplementation with two proteins, hydrolyzed whey isolate (WI) and casein (C), on strength, body composition, and plasma glutamine levels during a 10 wk, supervised resistance training program. In a double-blind protocol, 13 male, recreational bodybuilders supplemented their normal diet with either WI or C ( gm/kg body wt/d) for the duration of the program. Strength was assessed by 1-RM in three exercises (barbell bench press, squat, and cable pull-down). Body composition was assessed by dual energy X-ray absorptiometry. Plasma glutamine levels were determined by the enzymatic method with spectrophotometric detection. All assessments occurred in the week before and the week following 10 wk of training. Plasma glutamine levels did not change in either supplement group following the intervention. The WI group achieved a significantly greater gain (P < ) in lean mass than the C group ( +/- vs. +/- kg for WI and C, respectively) and a significant (P < ) change in fat mass (- +/- kg) compared to the C group (+ +/- kg). The WI group also achieved significantly greater (P < ) improvements in strength compared to the C group in each assessment of strength. When the strength changes were expressed relative to body weight, the WI group still achieved significantly greater (P < ) improvements in strength compared to the C group.
