Im training 6 days per week on weights, not sure if too much, i feel so bad when i dont train. But i know rest is important so how should i do this. At the moment i do chest on monday, arms tuesday, legs wednesday, shoulders thursday, back friday and legs on saturday. Legs are where i really am keen to add size but all over really. Had a bad weekend been really sick and have had to miss two workouts, havent been able to eat as all comes back up and have lost 5kg approx, what will i have lost and really how can i cut my training week down, should i just do arms after chest and back and have an extra days rest there?

If you are progressing, no.
If you are not, yes.
Hope you get better soon.
Don't expect to jump in at the same intensity or load, or for the same number of sets, or for the same number of exercises, until you have really gotten better.Beginners:

Unless it is obvious to anyone who isn't blind that you lift weights, you might still benefit from a little more attention to big basic barbell exercises for enough reps:).

I do for sets for most exercises and the reps vary, start at 12 , then 10 then will try going heavy then perhaps another heavy one on compound exercises. i think i just need to play around a bit, maybe a few weeks with less days and higher reps for a while, was thinking of trying GVT for few weeks. Just so worried how much weight ive lost from being unwell over weekend, so annoying.

I do legs twice per week, on wednesy its heavy more compound and saturday more isolation work which i feel is working well at the moment so want to keep to that. Have got into bad habbit though, i train with friend who is just looking to increase strength and i do let him talk me into lifting heavy for couple of reps at times, my fault i know.
