Alright forget what your used to doing forget what works for you im asking strictly from a progress, overall health, fitness standpoint whats the downside to working out 5+ days a week. Generally a bodybuilding routine has it set around 3-4 days a week working on compound lifts am i correct? But considering im not going for a bodybuilding physique just pure overall health and sports funcionality if i were to go the gym for say 6 days a week and take a week off every once in a while will i really notice anything different?
Ive been toying with the idea of doing 4 day straight of my normal lifs the same as the people who do 4 days in a 7 day time span im doing 4 in a 5 day timespan if my body is already fully recovered after those 4 days why wait another 2? Football players practice every day often twice and last time i checked you dont mess with most of them.
So a normal week would look something like this
Monday- Workout A
Tuesday- Workout B
Wednesday- Workout C
Thursday- Workout D
Saturday- Workout A
Sunday- Workout B
And so on and so fourth i always see people saying dont workout 6 times a week dont do this dont do that but why? As long as you know your body and can tell if your overtraining i dont get the point why its not bad to workout more then 5 times a week.
Alright so look at it from my standpoint im not looking to be huge not competing in any shows im looking to become a better athlete is there any proven scientific results that say working 6 times a week is bad?
