Re: Any point in doing CF only 3 times a week, as part of a "fight fitness" regimen?

With regard to the 3 times a week, Rip's starting strength program is the perfect example. 3 days a week is the program prescription but I know from personal experience I have still made gains from 2 x per week and maintained with one day a week following Rip's program.
do you mean 2x a week is only 10% less effective?
