I know a guy who sometimes does 2x a day. According to him, you really have to up your carb intake if you want to be able to lift with any considerable volume and intensity. Many faster acting carbs between the sessions.
His approach to lifting is pretty cool. Started to lift a year ago. Immediately took the John Broz approach: lifting every single day with only compounds and moderate volume and high intensity. Daily maxing on squats, 5-10 back off sets + whatever other 3-5 movements like DLs, bench, chins, OL lifts. His squat has gone from 135 to 375 and about the same for DL. His bench is lagging but thats because he has changed to weightlifting.
Regarding super high freq for BB, I'm not so sure. Remember that video by RP about freq? Anyway, Mike Israetel believes 2-3 x a week freq for a muscle is optimal if pure muscle growth is the goal. It has to recover fully before you work the muscle again to get max growth. I don't know any BBers that do super high freq either. Some lift 7 days a week, but thats on split programs like P/P/L, so the freq is not high.
For powerlifting and weightlifting you seem to be able to work with very high frequency since technique is a huge part and practicing the lifts more often can be beneficial. Then, many of the session just have to be light enough to not tear you down.Edited by conceptionist - 5/15/14 at 10:37am
