I would also add that there is some evidence that more frequent training with a lower daily volume of sets is a better approach for hardgainers/ectomorphs than training once a week with high volume.

While I do not wish to turn this into a scientific discussion, I will say that there is quite a bit of anecdotal evidence that this is the case - from the modern (Rippetoe to Starr to McRoberts) to the classic.

In either case, this is merely a fun challenge that involves serious training. It's a good opportunity to learn how your body handles full body workouts.

A few months back I (finally) ran a full body workout for a month and it taught me quite a bit.
