Default G'day there

Just found this forum and joined up. I'm on here not to get massively big. But to make gains and to keep strong to fight off arthritis and to help my back which is no good. But weights do and sometimes don't help at other times. With help I would like to get stronger. I have been told that I have got big arms and I want to be bigger all over. I can only do a 6 week program and then I have to rest a week. And in between this I will have to rest a couple of days now and then. But I miss doing my weights when this happens.
I don't think there is a better feeling that come after doing a really good workout. The Bushranger.

Welcome.

I doubt that it's possible that all programs can only be done for six weeks by you. It will depend on the how the program allows for recovery....the volume and all that. No doubt the programs you have done have been like that but I'm sure it's quite possible to do it longer if it is programmed correctly.

With the couple days off here and there, which is OK really, but all in all it seems like you probably just need to use routines with less volume and maybe less frequency and then perhaps build on that.

Good luck!

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

To Eric3237
what you have said is totally wrong about me not being able to do a workout for a 6 week duration. The part that only allows me to do this is my back. By around the 6th week I start to have lot of pains in my back. I have tried to go for a 8 week program and ened up have to take 2 month off. And 6 weeks is my limit. So what I am saying is this is all my body will allow me to do. I'm after a fitter body and to push harder is just being stupid to me as I end up in total pain. So longer is not better for me I'm sorry to say. And I'm not using very heavy weight cause if I did I again would end up really bad. Back wise. The Bushranger.

Well my main point is that it would only make sense that the specific volume, frequency, intensity, and any number of factors should contribute to how your back shoud take it and for how long. I certainly wasn't suggesting you should push it. Qutie the opposite. Something that allowed you to progress longer would mean you were pushing it less since that would entail more recovery for you back and less of whatever accumulated factors are leading to pain. Sorry I wasn't aware that you had tried every way of training known to man and that they all result in a six week limit.

I'm not even saying a six week limit and then a deload is such a terrible thing. I was only trying to offer friendly advice and it is fine with me if you think I am totally wrong. If you won't to close your mind to possibilities who am I to question? It's all meant in a friendly way and is nothing to get defensive about.

As I said, welcome and good luck .
