    If you train the same body part everyday

    won't the muscle shrink? Dunno why but I see this guy doing the same work outs each day and he is big o.o how is he getting bigger not giving his muscles rest. I go everyday of the week and then abs /cardio for rest days and see this guy weight training.

    Is it possible to train the same body parts everyday and get big if you eat and rest correctly?
    I just want to share the knowledge I have obtained throughout my life and hopefully change someone's life.

    it could just be this particular week or so i've done weeks where i don't train the same body part everyday, but i'll do the same bodyparts 3x a week as opposed to my usual 2 or 1 time a week. Some people don't follow the bbing "do's and don'ts" and see results.

    deadlift- 360
    squat- 260

    Bodybuilding is 60% training and 50% diet. Yes that adds up to 110%, because that's what you should be giving it. Change the inside, and the physique will follow.

    You hear this all the time, but different strokes for different folks.

    Experiment with your workouts, and see what your body responds to.

    Personally, I would be overtrained in a matter of weeks doing same bodypart 3+ times a week.

    And overtraining isnt good at all. Your muscles wont grow because they are so fatigued.

    Maybe if you're on roids...MAYBE, but still most likely no. Don't even try it, its ridiculous. Go read NSCA's essentials of strength training and conditioning.

    it depends on the frequency versus intensity,if you lift to full intensity theres no way you could train that body part 3/4 times a week,but if your just going through the motions like so many people do it could be possible. after all long distance walkers dont have big legs but they use the muscles for ridiculously long periods of time.

    Walking or aerobic activity uses type I muscle fibers. weight lifting or anaerobic activity uses type II and IIx muscle fibers. completely different, you can't correlate the two in regards to lifting, even if moderate or light intensity.

    this^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    Alot depends on HOW HARD you're training that bodypart. If you're going to failure then 3 would be too much. If you lower the volume you can do 3 no problem. Actually this works well for me for lagging areas. Also try to get away from designing workouts based on a 7 day cycle. Once you're in touch with your body you'll KNOW how often to train something..It'll tell you

    When experimenting, try to change as few variables as possible, and give it time to show progress either way.

    As far as the frequency youre talking about, alot of people can do this with smaller muscle groups, but big ones take more time to heal/recover.

    I would never squat/deadlift/bench/overheadpress/row more than once every 5-7 days. But I feel fine doing abs and calves twice a week.

    guy at the gym does nothing but bench then a couple sets of curls followed by a couple sets tricep push downs. I see him about 4 days/week and he's able to pull big numbers on bench. does reps/sets with 300 flat bench. also does inclines and declines. I saw him go through his bench routine last Thurs then Fri I see him doing his bench routine and he asks me to spot him at 365 so he does 365 no problem, didn't need any liftoff or help and says he's tryin to get back up to 405.

    He does no leg work or back work but the bench routine is workin for him or so it seems.

    He might be big working the same muscles everyday..but Think of how much bigger that guy at the gym would be if he rested in between workouts of each body part.
    It's all about Tearing, reparing, and then muscle growth.

    Probably not the very same bodypart, unless the guy was using very light weight, and staying away from failure. When you start to look at training volume, you have to compare it to training intensity. Except for the very few genetically gifted, those training natty can either train hard, or train a lot. Can't really do both for any length of time.
    No brain, no gain.

    You can't out-train bad nutrition.

    I personally believe in progressing like this:

    less weight x fewer sets, reps -> less weight, more sets/reps -> more weight, back to original sets/reps

    example:

    315 deadlift 2x10-> 315 deadlift 3x10, 1x5 -> deadlift 330x2x10

    I've thought about it but it could be possible that a guy would do the same thing using his frequency: ramping up frequency and volume with a given weight, then lowering both frequency and volume after a while and switching to a heavier weight.

    Read about overreaching and supercompensation. You can train the same body part continuously but you need to know when to stop. Ben Pakulski used to train his calves 6 times a week when he was NATURAL and now he's got the best calves in bodybuilding, Johnnie Jackson used to train his traps after every workout and now he says they're too big, CT Fletcher trained his arms every day for a year and a half and now look at them. After overreaching for a while your performance will decrease but after the microcycle of higher frequency your body will rebound back with supercompensation. I'm training my chest lightly every morning (3 sets of flyes and a set of push ups till failure) for 2 weeks then taking a week off my chest to see if I make any gains. Sleeping more than usual, as well as eating more and having loads of vitamin C
