If you use m1t is it better to work out 7 days a week or have a day off or too. I currently go monday-friday and dont lift saterday sunday. Will i gain more if i am lifting 7 days a week or does that day or 2 off benifit me.
Never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever train 7 days a week.Originally Posted by Rebel
I used to go 7 a week with no problem but in the last 2 months i started a program that only goes 5.
Read some of Iron Addict's posts in the Exercise Science section.
Damn- I only go 4.Originally Posted by Rebel

Then you werent working out hard enough.Originally Posted by Rebel
is it alright if on your off days your doing minor stuff like abs or some cardio?
Training abs shouldn't be minor. Cardio should be cool as long as it's not too intense. No HIIT stuff on off days.Originally Posted by chaos254

You will hurt yourself if you overtrain on strength enhancing drugs.
Your joints cannot take the added stress. Quality recovery time and nutrition is best for the added muscle you are looking, not more work. I am nursing injurys right now from overtraining on M1T 7 days a week. :mad
Dont be like me.
Unless you only train with 10lb DB's, in that case train 24/7.:
If you are doing heavy bench presses, keep them scheduled far away from shoulders.
Squats and deadlifts should also be seperated with a day or two rest for the lower back.
Anything more than 5 days a week is overtraining, even on M1t. Even pros taking 30x the level of androgens you are taking have at least 1 day off per week.
I train 5 days/week on-cycle, & 4 days off-cycle.
