Scientific benefits of training twice per week:
Potential increase in muscle mass
Studies have proven time and again that if we compare 1x per week against 2x, 3x, and even 4x; we get very similar increases in strength. Almost the EXACT same in fact. https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2468867319300513
Those same studies have shown that when volume is equated; frequency doesn’t really matter. However; we can use an increase in frequency to obtain a higher overall volume (think one long workout of 20 sets vs. two efficient 10 set sessions per week). https://www.jsams.org/article/S1440-2440(18)30862-4/fulltext
Now, we have to be careful when discussing frequency. There is absolutely NOT a 1:1 return on your exercise investment. You do not get double or triple the benefit from coming in two or three times per week - it’s more along the lines of single-digit percentage gains, and the outcome is influenced by your genetics as well as your sleep, nutrition, and stress levels.
Depending on your priorities, those gains might be meaningful enough to invest the extra time. Or, perhaps you have a short-term goal and want to dial up the frequency to achieve it in your desired timeline.
If your goal is to gain muscle size, either in the long term or short term; a higher frequency might be the ticket for you, and we can help program that into a sustainable solution.
Physical activity promotes better mental health
Movement, of any kind, makes us feel good. Doing things we’re good at makes us feel good. Doing things that we are good at that incorporates movement is the ultimate feel-good recipe.
We don’t always have time before or after work. Our 30-minute appointments are the ultimate in efficiency, and you know we always run on time.
If you struggle to get enough activity in throughout the week; 2 sessions per week might be a perfect fit for you.
Increased likelihood of exceeding (or even achieving) the minimal effective frequency over the year
Currently the average MedX member completes just 3.19 sessions per month. This adds up to only 38 sessions per year! That’s significantly less than once per week.
Training twice a week, will help make up for those weeks when you just can’t find the time to train (overbooked meetings, catching a cold or going on vacation).
We know, beyond a shadow of a doubt that you are ready to rock after 6 - 7 days of rest between workouts. For some, fewer rest days are required and we are able to customize around your preference. Overtraining is also a process; not an event. With the right coaching, management, and planning (our job); training frequency can be fine-tuned to achieve more sessions per year and lead you toward optimizing your fitness.
