Default Squatting Every Day and the John Broz training method

Quote:
John Broz bases his training on Bulgarian methods. This means training daily and often with multiple sessions a day. He also uses only a handful of exercises and has his athletes working up to a max at every session. This is heresy for many. Squatting up to a max every day seems like a recipe for overtraining. John says just the opposite. He acknowledges that doing this will lead to a decrease in performance in the short term and all the classic symptoms of overtraining (tiredness, irritability, insomnia). This is what he calls "dark times." However, he also says that an athlete will eventually work through this and working up to a max every day will be normal. It is hard to argue with the results that he has had.
I have been thinking a lot about this subject lately, and i think this man is very spot on. The human body is a great machine and can adapt to almost anything.

I didn't think you were, but I had to ask. I thought maybe you were going beyond hardcore, into hardcore hardcore.

Well i would like to try to push myself to the max sometime, when i got the time and so on. But its a BIG different between us amateurs and the pro/career OL lifters that have their whole life based on their sport. Its always on a gradient. I read somewhere that the polish ol lifters worked out 17 times a week, doing max lifts. Thats crazy and wont allow you to do much else but lift and sleep.
