I know for me I do hard work at my job and have two kids to care for. two a days more than 2-3x per week would obliterate me and probably send my gains in reverse.

Exactly and not everyone can train multiple times a day without hurting their progress. My point was aimed at the "athletes do it why can't I" comment not to put down the theory of training two a days. I wish I had the time and a not so physical job that allowed me to do it.

Make sure you plan in recovery accordingly, listen to your body, and put a stronger focus on your nutritional intakes.

Re: 2 Training Sessions a Day?

I would add into this conversation the goal of two a days isn't to send volume through the roof. Yes you will have more volume but more importantly the quality of the second workout should be higher after several hours of rest and refueling.

Smart and high quality will beat pure volume every time.

Re: 2 Training Sessions a Day?

I've started doing 2-a-days recently, but I do the WOD in the mornings, and then go back in the afternoon for a longer, less intense cardio-centered workout. I also only go twice a day on Mon, Wed and Friday. If I went twice every day I'm pretty sure I would burn out. I'd rather do a longer cardio based WOD in the morning and strength in the afternoon, but I'm working around family members who do their WOD in the am. On Tue, Thurs and Sat I only work out once.

So far I really like it, and I can change the intensity of my second workout depending on what my body is telling me I need. And if it just needs a break, I'll listen as well. Listening to your body is pretty key......
