I’m sure nearly everyone on this board is addicted to weight lifting (what with the endorphins and all). As for me, I don’t like waiting for my next workout, and I sometimes work out on recovery days.
Who on this board works out nearly every day, and what do you think of doing this? Do you notice any negative effects, like stagnating muscle growth, etc.?[/quote]
Sometimes I may lift 7 days a week.
Those times I do I throw in a cycle of force-feeding (which I stopped doing regularly because I can fit 5000 or so calories in me easily now). Carbs are very UNDERrated. Eat more carbs when you lift on recovery days, and keep protein high.
For example, last week I did my usual Back and Biceps on Monday. Wednesday is usually my off/cardio day but I was bored so I went ahead and did Back/Bis again even though they were sore (I didn’t want to conflict with any other body part and Chest/Tris were way too sore).
Although sore, I kept my carbs and protein high and they were fine. They probably benefited from it.
