    How often can you train legs????

    I might be having shoulder surgery (find out tuesday) if so I will still go to the gym and do quads, hams, and calves. How often can I workout each one of those. I am looking for as much size as possible.

    When I ran Sheiko I was smashing the **** out of my legs M,W,F. And like Gstacker said, 5x5 is similar but with less volume. I've always said if I injured my upper body, I'd build the biggest wheels possible!

    There is some individual differences as far as ability to recover, but if you deload every week 5 I think you can kick the shit out of your legs at least 3 days per week. If you're on some gear or GH that will improve recovery. And eat as much as you can.

    I say go for it. Take a look at Smolov Squat program. Adapt it to whatever you'll be able to do with the bum shoulder. Might be able to still do back squats if you have a safety squat bar.

    Re: How often can you train legs????

    I really do appreciate you guys. I'm hoping its just bad inflamation but the dr thinks otherwise. I was reading that it takes around 6 months to get back 75% of your strength. That will kill me. I live for this sport. I think I will hit legs 3x's a week. Thanks again yall.

    Bundy I like the avitar. Me and the police have a long rap sheet together. I hate them all!!!!

    Let us know what your doc says brother! We're all hoping for the best for sure!

    I think if you are cycling you can hit your legs 3x per week max. MAX. but even that may be over training a bit. If you are off cycle I say once every 5 days max as was stated above. It's just way too damn easy to over train legs.

    I am going to try 3x per week for a while just to see if I can blast them back into growing again! I'm in the same boat as you for a while on the upper body
