    Recovery time?

    How long is recovery time for the average man if he workout for a hour to hour and a half 4-5 day a week.

    Muscle takes from 7-10 days for full recovery. Basing your workout on a 1 body part per week will be best for recovery and prevention of overtraining.

    I agree with my bro's here. 7-10 days for full recovery. I've heard and beleive in as a rule of thumb, to hit each body part no more than once every 7-8 days at 1 body part per day.

    Two bodyparts? This will not be a problem if they are not large muscle groups . i.e. quads and back

    Er...back is among the largest muscle groups in your body! Not a good example!

    Something like bi's and calves would be okay.

    ummm i think sonic was giving examples of two large muscle groups not two groups to work together.
    just a misunderstanding

    is this a good way to train ragardless of AS use or not, say for a teenager, because i feel weak if i dont work out the BIG muscle groups everyother day, ie; quads, and chest.

    If you are still able to workout a large muscle group 2 days after you have just trained, chances are you don't train intense enough. Here is a split I use, I am natural, no gear.

    Day 1:Chest/Bis
    Day 2:Legs
    Day 3:Rest
    Day 4:Shoulders/Tris
    Day 5:Back
    Day 6:Rest
    Day 7:Rest or Repeat

    Reason for this split is it gives at least 2 days in between for chest and shoulders/tris cuz you work your shoulders and tris during chest. Same goes with legs and back since you use your abs as stabilizer muscles and secondary muscles like hams and glutes get worked during dead lifts.

    Doing each body part more than once or maybe even upt to twice a week is definatly over training. Try increasing your intensity level of your workouts.
