    Talking Working legs 3 times a week.

    I had a personal trainer and before I left him to go to my job, he had me working my legs three times a week. I am a female and I want to focus on my thighs. So is working the legs Monday, tuesday, and Friday okay? Or should I do it every other day? I ask because he had me thinking I should do it three days back to back but the every other day method seems better since this will help the muscle to recovery some. Any advice?

    not 3 days back to back. if you are effectively working them, and by that I mean big movements (squat, deadlift, leg press, lunges, etc) with heavy enough weights for it to be challenging, you will need time to recover...also keep in mind that you stimulate your muscle in the gym, your body builds upon your muscles when at rest.

    give it a try taking at least one day break between workouts. if you are eating well and sleeping you can probably recover fine.

    I would however recommend you work your entire body, even if your thighs are what you want to work on the most.
    O35 and enjoying life.

    48 hours (minimum) between same body part workout is the general rule.
