Hey, Chris -
Kudos on this diet and the training.
I did the diet twice a few years ago and trimmed up nicely.
I recently went traveling for a year and a half and didn’t work out except for body weight exercises and kettlebells, infrequently.
Needless to say I got out of shape, so I started back up with your Beginner’s program and Tim Ferriss’s Slow Carb diet since I really didn’t need to lose too much fat, just build muscle. Then jumped in to the Intermediate phase (with only one transition phase) for a total of 10 weeks. It worked great!!
I’m going to use the Velocity training, without the diet, to trim up for next summer starting next March.
So my question is: If I start off with the Beginner’s program (including Transition phase) than go immediately into the Intermediate program (also including transition phase) for a total of 12 weeks, should I take some time off (5 days to a week) for recovery after, or maybe in between?
