You need to have at least a day for rest i think and if it usn't sore the next day it does nothing. No pain no gain
u need to workout 15 days a week if u want to see the results..
And how many days are you gonna do heavy basic exercises with high (close to maximum) intensity? 2-3?
this is the worst you can do
workout really hard with lots of heavy lifting (if u wanna build muscle and lose fat)
but only do it 4-5 times a week
Your body needs to rest and if you dont get sore then you didnt work out
you can easily do push/pull/legs without a rest days.
just do arms 1 day, legs 1 day, chest 1 day, shoulders etc and ur good
probably don't need a hardcore gym session every day of the week, but on those "rest" days you should still strive to be active, like idk, go ride a bike or something, brisk walk, etc
1. chest arms
2. arms abs
3. back arms
4. shoulders arms
5. abs arns
7. abs arms
beginner: 3x a week
advanced: 4-5x a week max
pro/roids = 6-7x a week
everything else is retarded. of course some genetics are better and some muscles recover faster but training 6-7x a week when u just started is pointless
You need some rest, but you can easily workout 6 days a week if you follow a specific program. One of the most upvoted programs on /r/fitness is the PPL program, which is:
and then repeat
Alternatively you can do monday-wednesday, rest thursday, and workout friday,saturday and sunday, but i like having sunday off.
There's a ton of different ways to workout. If you workout each muscle group more than once a week, it's great for muscle-growth, but not ideal if you want to get very strong.
working out is just like %25 percent of getting in shape. Eating appropriate to your body and resting (i mean 7-8 hours night sleep) is %75. After work out session, you need to rest big muscle groups 48 hours (Back, chest, leg, ) to have them recovered, and smaller muscles need 24 hours of resting (shoulder, biceps, triceps). Try this if you want to see some improvement. There are so many details but it is ok for this question.
Ignore the no pain-no gain thing above. 7 times a week/less/more only depends on your purpose and everything else in your life outside of gym,
i school time i got 11 trainings per week
butt i train 2 times everyday 7 times a weaks
lol, cant believe you losers haven't activated your biogenetic selfrepairing nanobots yet
I take Saturday's off, it tends to be my busiest day socially. Thus I don't want to have to cram working out somewhere in there. I also do a 2-day split so 6 days just fits better.
