I have heard the Pro Bodybuilders hit up the gym twice a day in two hour sessions; once in the morning and once at night. Does anyone know if this is true because doesnt your muscles need time to relax at least 24 hours before you start up a new workout?

But you have to remember that's all they really do. Cutler himself has said when he's not working out, he basically just lays on the couch all day. Plus, he eats, and eats, and eats. And eats. Plus, if he's taking some sort of steroid or something, but I won't go into that.

What pro bodybuilders do and what the rest of us should do are sometimes completely different things.Okay, have you ever been around chickens? They are stupid, uncooperative, inconvenient, ill-tempered creatures. They get what they deserve. [Bleep] chickens.

hours but this will kick your a$$! I would go with what your body tells you..Once a day of Cardio and Weights if Fine if your Recovery is good but twice a day of that stuff is just over training. Unless your Juicing!

Jay doesn't do a double split all the time, nor does he train for two hours. He keeps a pretty fast pace.
Most pros don't train much more than most people, well most people that do go to the gym regularly.
Mark Dugdale trains four day per week for roughly an hour.
Ronnie C trains 6 days per week for about 1 1/2 hours.
No pro that I know (and I know many) trains for 2 hours per day twice per day. Keep in mind, most pros actually have another job. Jay, Ronnie, and a few others make enough money to be able to do nothing else (though Jay actually does quite a bit else). Some most pros are fitting it in just like you and I.
I'm certainly no pro, but I currently train four days per week for about 75 minutes each time.Dr Clay Hyght, DC, CSCS, CISSN

what clay said.
to add to that. most will actually split their workout into two shorter workouts just to get out of there faster so they can eat and rest. they know you dont grow in the gym.
some of these guys dont take any days off, or if they totally feel like they are dragging they might. but honestly if all your day consists of is eating and sleeping then lifting you will not be over training. esp with what they may be taking.
