    Weekends off?

    Hey guys right now im doing a 5 day split...

    Chest
    Back
    Shoulders
    Arms
    Legs

    I was wondering if it would be good to workout monday through friday, and taking the weekends off? Only reason I ask this is because the gym I go to closes early on the weekend, and by the time i get off work the gym is closed. During the week this isnt a problem. Any ideas?

    Your body grows during rest. Take the weekends off, I still think you are overtraining, but hey, whatever works for you.

    I don't see any problems with taking the weekend off, however i would suggest putting legs in the middle of the week. Give your upper body a break. So maybe, switch shoulders and legs, just a suggestion.

    I personally cannot take 2 days in a row off. Try a 2 on 1 off.

    just keep in mind that your gains come while resting and not in the gym
