Interesting insight. I hate split sessions as usually one of them is horrible. Either I had a shitty one early and salvaged the day with another one late, or I had a good one early and didn't have the focus to do much worthwhile in the later one. I agree the impact on recovery would be detrimental in general, but I'm sure it wouldn't be too bad as long as you didn't do these all the time.
Great work Josh. Keep plugging along.

Hack away at anything which isn't essential. Do what you love, and do it often. Fazc.
Everything competes for recovery so more assistance is not always the best idea. miked96
