Everyone is different and if you’re able to see results and take rest days as needed without having them scheduled, then do that.
Personally I schedule at least one day per week to “rest” and sometimes will take days off if I’m feeling especially stressed out, tired or worn out on top of that day; but I’m 31, have two very young kids and a high pressure sales job.
You’re 24 and in the range of your prime, so push your limits.
Yea, i’m young ;-D without job; i’m student, without kids etc. I can sleep year round 8h, have a lot of free time so… i’m trying to train that much i can. Sometimes i think it’s too much but… i never feel overtrained or something like that even when i train with a lot of volume and heavy weight in one training. I love this way.
When i have used to take rest days becouse i have them in my training program from other forums i feel like shit in off days but i take a rest becouse people say: you must do it… Never again. I think when i’m training with my intuition i feel better becouse i’m enjoying with doing it.
Maybe the best Bodybuilders are the best becouse they know how to listen their bodies…
