Default Training the same muscle group twice a day?

Can one train the following way to loss body fat and gain big muscle?
Train high reps with light weights in the morning about 09am and the train the same muscle group in the afternoon 06pm low reps heavy weights, the same muscle group will then only be trained again after 7 days.

You could do this but you are risking injury much more.

I would never recommend training that way. You are misinformed about the best rep range for fat loss--high reps aren't necessarily better for fat loss because there's less metabolic impact with the lighter weights used.

Stick with the standard rep range (5-12 reps) and train a muscle group about every 3-5 days (more often if you are just a beginner). Fat loss comes through diet and adding a little extra cardio if needed.

Never weight train a body part 2 x in the same day, that is just crazy.
