    To be honest I wouldnt call 2-5 minutes every 2 hours a workout

    Anyway Id prefer to do the full half hour in one go and work up a sweat

    spread around, depending on how the routine looks like

    ORIGINAL: majesticpower

    To put it simply, you wont be taxing your muscles hard enough by training only 3 minutes every 2 hours or so, which in-turn wont produce sufficient growth hormones to allow your muscles to grow big and stong.


    Big, sure. Strong, no. Spreading out your work over the day (3 minutes is a bit extreme, since it hardly even gives you time to warm up, but 10 minutes would probably work) would actually be a pretty effective way to train for strength without getting bigger.
