    How many days a week do you train?

    ^^^^^This was supposed to be a poll, but that function is not working on my computer for some reason.

    Six days

    I've got my workout spread into 5 different days and try to rotate them around so every 5th week I do the same twice in teh same weeks. Sometimes, I'll double a day or two and take two or three days off and eat and sleep.

    I work out 4 to 5 days a week. I think I would be overtraining if I workout more than that every week.

    Monday-chest/tris
    Tuesday-Back/bis
    Wed-off
    Thurs-shoulders
    Friday-legs

    thats it for me now. I may change my routine structure in a few months. I will experiment with back tuesday and an arm day Friday and I will also experiment with training arms twice a week.

    Currently doing:

    Monday: upper back, biceps

    Tuesday: high intensity leg cardio

    Wednesday: chest, triceps, shoulders

    Thursday: rest

    Friday: thighs , lower back

    So three days, including one hard cardio session on tuesday which is not weights but works my legs hard nevertheless.

    I did this training for a show and it worked wonders. Then kept it up throughout the enitre year and am now paying the price. Lost wayyy to much friggn weight/muscle. It's hard as hell changing your diet and training to do cardio 1x week rather than 7. Bulking harder than ever.

    I am cutting right now so this works great for me.. Yes if you are trying to bulk it is way to much cardio and once I meet my goal and go to Bulk I will hang up my walking shoes for while.

    I can imagine it is hard to witch up to only doing one day of cardio, if I miss One day I feel like I am slacking.

    Couldn't agree more. I was always a volume guy myself and thought there is no way I could make gains training jsut 3 days a week. Well, I decided to try it out and holy shit the gains have never been better. Its like I am a noob again. You never realize how easily you can overtrain until you go to 3 days/week and think wow, i feel great. Notice all the guys on here who say "my gains are going great" etc are the 3 days/wk guys

    Check out Pinnacle's sticky in this forum and scroll down to any of those 3 day /wk routines, they are all great..especially Iron Man HIT

    lately i've been finding that when i rest longer days, that i'm sore when i go back and I get bigger and stronger. I'de hate to say that i've overtrained all these years.

    i think i'll cut down to 3-4 days a week only now.
