I've been working out since May 2010, after solid everyday training and eating right I lost 18 pounds of fat and put on muscle. After looking at this site though I feel like everybody's routine has off days. I always give a muscle group at least a 3 day break but I rarely go a day without any type of workout.. example:
Monday - Chest and Tri
Tuesday - Back and Bi
Wedensday - Shoulders and Forearms
Thursday - Legs and Abs
Friday - Chest and Tri
Saturday - Back and Bi
Sunday - Shoulders and Forearms
Monday - Legs and Abs
And just continue on like that. Is this okay? Or are days where you don't work out at all completely necessary? I'm a full time student at Villanova so I do sometimes take off a day (like once every two weeks) but that's simply because I don't have the time. Thanks

I've read some things about working out everyday...and the "theory" behind it (no official studies found yet) is that your body will adapt to anything you put it through. So if you train everyday then your body will learn to recover faster.
I don't know how true that is but if you ask any experienced lifter they will all say the same thing...."you gain the most at rest"

Man, honestly. Every individual is different. I work out everyday but spend only about 3 hours total time in the gym, meaning for 21 of those hours, my body is resting. It's all right to do what you want to do if your body feels good. Like this quote everyone likes to sig: "you can't out-train a poor diet." Ummm Michael Phelps anyone? Conventional wisdom is usually sound, but just listen to your body. If you feel good, hit the gym, if you're tired, sleep. Believe me when your body is tired and it wants to rest it will force you to get rest. When I work out too hard my body sleeps for 10 hours or so recovering. Also, how old are you? 19? Youth plays a huge factor as well. At that age you shouldn't worry much. Just do your thang.There are no men like me. Only me.
