Hello All,
I took a little lay off for a while and now Im back and Im bad... Just kidding. I recently started the 5 on 2 off scheduele, to leave the weekends free. See the reason being where I work every weekend people call in sick. I guess there is some illness that strikes on weekends in the summer. So anyway being one of the lower men on the totem pole, I get ordered to stay for the next shift... Anyway if there is anyone out there who can tell me how the 5/2 worked out for them let me know. I mean as far as getting enough recuperation and such. Thanks

John-

With the 5/2 you will need to be much more dilligent about modulating your intensity. Some days will really need to be nothing more than active rest. This is an opportunity to perfect technique and form while achieving a modest systemic stimulus. The less is more approach certianly applies here.

John,
I teach P.E. M-F, so I've been on a 5/2 schedule for a while now. I usually work hard Mon/Tues/Thurs/Fri, and play a sport or practice new things on Wed. Saturdays I try to fast, but I do very little activity. If I do work around the house, I'll eat in the evening.
Sundays I eat like a hog! No workout at all on the weekends.
This past Saturday, I did the WOD only to be disappointed in my final pull-up #. I guess I should have waited until Monday.
Dave
