How often should you train?

I think Pavel Tsatsouline answered this a long time ago. He simply said ‘Train as often as possible, while staying as fresh as possible’. Brilliant advice. Most people have this conviction that you have to totally destroy yourself each time you exercise. Maybe when you are young you might get away with it for a while. As you age, it’s a different story. What Pavel really meant was that the faster you recover, the sooner you can exercise again.

For example, I keep my workouts short (and yes at times intense) but I can train every day without any problems because recovery from short sessions is not an issue.
