[quote author="ktolbert" date="1263935784"]It’s *very* common for athletes at that level to lift 3x/week.
My comment is fairly general and one could make an argument based on certain variables but I just don’t think that 48 hours is enough time to recover before a similar session can be repeated.
I put one too many lower body strength workouts in the same ballpark as all the garbage miles distance runners do. They’ll feel better without it but are too afraid to find that out.[/quote]
“lift 3x/week” does not hold enough information to be able to relate it with “similar session”.
