    @ OP, you need to rest. Your body will not progress without it. You need to train, get rest and eat well. Training everyday will eventually lead to taxing your CNS. It is a general rule that you wait 48-72 hours between muscle groups to allow them to recuperate. Everyone is different and can work things harder or maybe have to take it easy.

    Can you work out every day? Yes. Do you want to? No.

    If you are going to lift every day it is better to do a 5 day split. Chest, Back, Shoulders, Arms, and Legs. That should give each muscle group enough rest.

    I work out hard 5 days a week mon-fri, I'll work traps, back, lats, shoulders, triceps, chest, and I'll do Legs and Abbs on weekends. They say you are supposed to take 1 to 2 days off but I cant bring myself to do that. What I'm doing seems to be working though so I think it depends on the person.

    Really depends on the person. But I believe during a bulking cycle, rest is a MUST. During my current bulk I lift hard (pretty much to failure everyday) 5 days a week and then rest it up for 2 days. Your muscle still grows as you rest, it needs to heal from the exercises you did to tear it up. During a cut you can push it to lifting/cardio 6x a week, possibly even every single day. Since you're trying to burn as much fat as possible. But for me, I would only workout a max of 6x a week. I need a rest day so I don't pass out or something from over exhaustion.

    Every day is too much. Take a day off once or twice a week. No reason to be in there every single day, even if on leg days you are working upper body and vice versa. Take at least one day a week and enjoy yourself =)

    Yeah, that's what i meant. My routine is like this:

    Mon: Chest/Triceps
    Tues: Back/Biceps
    Wed: Shoulder/Forearms
    Thurs:Legs
    Fri: Day off
    Sat: Chest/Triceps etc

    Is that good. Or is it better to take a day off in between each day of workout? I'm on a BULK btw.

    imo, unless you have been training hard for more than a year, or you have good recovery genetics, then your not pushing yourself hard enough if your able to train everyday with no rest days.

    If you feel like you can train everyday then you're probably not training with enough intensity. Just saying.

    Then the title of the thread is clearly misleading. I blame the OP, i.e. you.
