    Working out 6 times a week.

    For about 3 weeks I have been working out 6 times a week and rest on Sunday. What I've been doing is M-W is hypertrophy and T-S is Strength days. Is this ok? How many of you workout 6 times a week. And will I be overtraining?

    Toooooo much lifting...Pick one of two-hypertrophy or strength...It's recommended you do strength for a few months first, then move on to hypertrophy (and then end with endurance if you want to look like a bodybuilder). I'm personally doing German Volume Training, which is 10x10's for size. However, the workout demands after a certain set time that I do strength for a few weeks just so my muscles don't get too adapted on hypertrophy, but remember, this is by weeks, not by days.
    Get up and train while your opponent is sleeping!

    Overtraining is in the mind. You're 16. Your body heals incredibly fast. As long as you take 48 hours between working a muscle group you'll be fine.

    i remember when I thought GVT was a legit program
    "brb being brainwashed into thinking that i need protein to gain muscle. Im gaining just as much muscle on a vegan diet, and not worrying about protein at all. And if you ask the person why do you need this much protein they will give you some bullchit answer because they don't know chit and just believe whatever some idiot on a forum tells them." -- Shirohige

    I do 7 days a week, it's all about adaptation. Once you get used to it you'll be seeing great gains.

    i do 3 days on, 1 off, repeat - hitting each muscle group every 4 days.

    I find this right for me, some people recover faster than others
    Above all supplements, the key to success lies in your own willingness

    You can do whatever you want.

    Compounds I did high weight 5 sets and 3-5 reps.
    Isos were 10-15 reps.

    Exactly what he said. I am 16 as well and workout 6 times a week resting on sundays and it works perfectly. The reason my body can take it is because I workout certain body parts each day allowing me to rest those body parts throughout the week. So maybe I'll do triceps and biceps on monday then do other stuff throughout the week then do triceps and biceps again on friday and by then those muscles will be healed and fresh to train again.

    he was replying to the other guy saying how you should rest your muscle group for atleast 48 hours, so it takes time to heal and get bigger.... but as the replyer stated that he worked out 6 days a week and having only 24 hour rest day

    Well Jay Cutler said that as long you eat enough you can't/won't overtrain your body. Coming from him it is pretty easy for me to believe.
