ARE TWOA-DAY WORKOUTS HELPFUL IF I WANT TO SEE QUICK RESULTS FOR MY UPCOMING WEDDING? OR AM I MORE LIKELY TO INJURE MYSELF THIS WAY?
More isn’t always more: doing too much can have diminishing returns, depending on how much time you have left to train. If you’ve got more than two weeks, don’t start with two a day yet – your body may not be able to handle that much volume and you could increase your risk for injury. However, if you’ve been working out steadily for six to eight weeks and you’re ready for a final push to reach peak shape right before your wedding, go for it. Adding in a second workout in the last week or two can spike your metabolism, getting you even leaner and more cut for the big day.
Just follow these rules:
1) Perform the higher-intensity strength-training circuit in the morning, when you’re fresh. Later, do lowerintensity cardio. 2) Take at least one complete day off each week. 3) Do not perform double-headers on back-to-back days.
