    Train everyday?

    Whatís good my dudes. lm on week 3 going into week for of a test E/Deca cycle. So, Iím feeling ****ing great. No negative sides whatsoever. In fact, Iím feeling so good that I just canít get sore in the gym. Iíll lift for an hour and be straight gassed, but by the time I go home, eat, hydrate....Iím ready to get back in the gym. Itís nuts.

    I get my bloods done insanely regularly, at this week I showed elevated levels of CK, but not crazy high. This is usually and indication of overtraining. But normal was 450 and mine was like 517, so nothing crazy.

    Is there anything wrong w training everyday if youíre still feeling beast? Or am I an idiot?

    Not worth it. Regardless of drug use you will burn out. Recovery is important and while deca and test will speed that up a bit, the need for rest doesn't disappear.

    When I was a strapping young lad, I found out I could train 7 days a week for up to 3 hours a day as long as I got enough protein/cals to recover. Your body will let you know when it needs a break.

    That said, I found it beneficial to take one day off to refresh. I did sometimes do legs in the morning and upper body in the evening.

    Yea, I mean. I donít wanna be stupid about it. My body truly feels OPTIMAL at training everyday. But I donít wanna take a risk of Rhabdo or anything like that.


    And since you mentioned Cals/protein....Iím obviously bulking on this cycle, but I donít wanna dirty bulk. I want good lean gains. But canít get a clear answer on how many cals I should be consuming. Tons of bulking diet info out there but itís hard to find solid answers when gear is thrown in the mix. Iím currently at about 2500-3k cals Per day. Only carbs Iím in taking are in the form of legumes and wild rice.

    Btw Iím 6í1Ē 205lbs about 14.8% Bf.

    Thanks for the input my dudes. Seriously.

    Muscles don't grow in the gym, they grow at rest.

    Recovery is just as important as what you do inside the temple of iron.

    Your own data will tell you what you need to know. You're tracking calories and your measurements/weight, right?
    Aim to gain 1lb per week, if you're gaining too much, eat less.

    There are 4000 calories in a pound of fat.

    I used to train every day and take a day off like once every two weeks. Then I went to 4 or 5 days a week and saw the best gains. U need rest days.

    When I was your size, I got a minimum of 3,500 cals/day and 200+ gs of protein... sounds like your diet is good, maybe another meal in there would be beneficial.

    Also, make sure youíre going to failure... drop sets, giants, and supersets should be a staple.

    Tear it down, build it back..

    Make sure you define "rest" as the period of Stage 3 sleep (slow-wave sleep).

    I'm not defending training daily. Some people actually believe your muscle gets repaired while awake, though. "Repair" does happen to a tiny degree while awake, but not enough to mention it.

    I do believe training daily could be beneficial for a short time span. It's like intense manual labor 7 days a week-the CNS adapts even quicker, and with adequate sleep, muscle adapts faster (versus 5 days a week).

    Puts me in mind of Nuclei Overload training. Has any of you ever heard of it? Basically says to train a specific muscle group everyday for 30 days. Havenít read too much into it tho. Thereís so many mixed reviews. Iíll prob just back my training down to 3 days on 1 day off.

    I appreciate all of your guys input. Makes life easier.

    I've noticed through all the years that sleep is rarely, if ever, mentioned in "training every day" threads.

    No one ever talks about the effects of daily, adequate hours of sleep while training every day.

    If a person gets 8-11 hours of sleep every day while training intensely every day, there should be zero problems.

    Of course, training 7x a week should be done in temporary cycles with daily 8-10 hours of sleep if one decides to try it.

    Fancy names=total BS.

    Use common sense, which is train a body part a day (I've kept to 1 body part at 1x a week, except biceps+triceps are done together, for years now) with 8-11 hours of sleep daily if you want to try out training every day.

    If one were to train everyday, there definitely would have to be a drop in daily volume to avoid issues.

    If you were doing 20 sets per day 4x per week for a total of 80 weekly sets, I wouldn't try to do 20 sets per day, everyday, for a total of 140 weekly sets. That's a 75% increase.

    In this example, maybe if volume was dropped to 11 daily sets for a total of 77 weekly sets, it could work. Then build up from there if tolerated.

    I'd still err on taking at least one day off per week though.
