    Weight training twice a day can be VERY effective, but only if you split your current volume into 2 sessions, not doubling your current workout

    You get 2 post workout periods, and can focus on the specific movements relatively refreshed rather than fatigued at the end of a session

    you have asked this time and time again

    stick to the structure you set out before, the more you mess about the less likely you are to prosper

    am/pm splits are fine IMO if you have the ability to recover and target non related muscles but i dont see why with 7 days in a week you would need to

    depends on your lifestyle away from the gym, diet and training split,

    as i work 9-5, 5 days a week i couldnt cope with that work load.

    As Toxic Toffee says, you are always looking to change something or rearrange something or investigate exciting new possibilties instead of just getting on with lifting. Not to be unfair, but you lift are practically nothing. Train 3 times a week with sensible weights, eat well, rest and stop asking so many useless questions.

    Sure, I'm not dissing your lifts- I'm just saying that as a beginner you ought to spend less time endless rethinking your training and just get on with it. I've seen plenty of your posts and you've certainly garnered more than enough information to put a solid routine together.

    im not worrying, i will only train twice a day if the day i was supossed to do a workout on i missed so i would indeed catch up on the day i missed by working out twice a day.

    so this is an ad hoc question rather than a specific AM/PM split you have been talking about

    this was not clear

    the suggestion was training twice a day, day in day out

    i have done two sessions in a day but wouldnt make a habit of it

    im sorry for not making it clear at the begining. i just wanted to know if say doing a workout twice a day would be ok-but i should of added something like once or twice a week or once in a blue moon.

    bench press- 65kg-8
    squat- 70kg-20
    deadlift- 90kg-6

    Occasionally, I've gotten through Leg day - which is my busiest day - and ran out of time (45min slot) to do my calves, thus I made up for it before going to bed.

    I don't recommend it, but it's the lesser of two evils to do 2 sessions a day than to miss the work altogether.
