totally agree with lanky lefty.
It is almost impossible for me to gain any strength considering i am really close to an advanced lifter, still border line on intermediate.
But anyways since i am lifting heavier weights, this really puts alot of stress on my body and my CNS, which recovers alot of recovery.
I myself only squat once a week and deadlift once a week and hit each muscle gropu once a week
Now this was my workout routine in the fall/winter, to early of april.
But now when i have practice 3 times a week and games on the weekend my whole lifting routine is messed up.
If i am not hitting my whole body at least once in 2-3 weeks, thats when my strength starts to decrease. I know for a fact i have a lost alot of strength this season due to our heavy baseball schedule.
