Will I be ok lifting four days a week? - Page 4

post #46 of 55
Now I'm starting to feel bad for jumping in early on the "dogpile Englandmj7" party. Don't worry England, I get what you're saying. Two chest-thumps and a peace sign.

Jolly Green's probably said it best so far. In the meantime, dusty's probably worse off than if he hadn't started the thread to begin with....

This thread is the reason I never ask other people's advice about my workout regimen.

I've recently begun lifting again after having about a decade since i last hit the gym. Its always been my impression that rest was part of the weightlifting routine. Meaning you werent supposed to lift back to back days, to give your body 48 hours or so of rest. Right now i lift Monday, Wednesday, and either Friday or Saturday (depending how i feel).

you can lift every day if you work different muscle groups each day.

*edit*

just read the first pages of the thread. geesh.

anyways, disclaimer: i am not saying you should lift everyday, i'm saying it's possible and some people find success with this method...

As mizanation said, if you're working separate areas of the body then you can work out just about every day, as long as you make sure you leave about 48 hours in between working each muscle group.

That being said, I believe that circuit training is much more effective for most people's interests, and for that it is important to train only about three days per week.

Oops! Thats what i meant.



I usually do upper/lower in one day rather than rotate, then rest 1 day between sessions (usually just do cardio).
