“But life gets in the way of most things, and with such a time-consuming weight training routine it was simply unsustainable.”
“Less is more” applies to a lot of things: rich desserts, social drinking, our friends, etc. And believe it or not, less is more when it comes to weight training too. Don’t get me wrong; bodybuilders have to spend hours in the gym performing tons of different weighted exercises. But if you’re just trying to put on a little muscle and get healthy, their technique probably isn’t for you.
