Are recovery days really necessary, or is it just an excuse that weak people use to take a day off?

Worked out 7 days a week for like 6 months, lowered it to 5 days and saw no difference. Gave me more time to study and do shit so yeah. I'd say its entirely its preference.
INB4 load of lazy ass fucking tell you that rest days are necessary for your body to recover,
>>
>>35656446
So you're saying it's diminishing returns after 5 days?
>>
>>35656406
its ok just don't make your recovery day into a cheat day.
>>
ask this guy
>>
>>35656406
Yes, thats why my 7 day split works so well
A: Right Leg
B: Left leg
C: Left chest
D: Right Chest
E:Right Back
F: Left back
Every muscle group gets a week to rest this way
>>
>>35656533
Why buff people ruin their bodies with ink is beyond me
>>
>>35656446
Yeah, I guess. But I'll reiterate that its preference. I also felt shit on the two days that I didn't work out but that went away pretty quick.

>implying tattoos have anything to do with politics
It's just retards who can't think farther than a few days into the future vandalizing their own body instead of treating it like the temple that it is.
>>
wait wait wait what the fuck

right leg day?
left leg day?

Everybody repeat after me:

FITNESS HAPPENS WHEN YOU REST

Tearing down muscle in the gym weakens them, resting gives you body a chance to build them back up -- stronger.

FITNESS HAPPENS WHEN YOU REST

What's your point? No one is advocating working out 24/7 with no rest at all. Even if you go to the gym for 1-2 hours every day of the the week that still leaves >90% of your time to rest
>>
>>35657465
You don't work the same muscle groups on consecutive days, everybody knows that. If you want to train every day then you have to split up which muscles you're working on adjacent days, everybody knows this -- or do you? Otherwise that's why guys stall out.
>>
>>35656406
if you have no life besides working out, go for it
you can also alternate lifting days and cardio days to reduce soreness
i got my friends, work and uni, so i'll personally stick to 3 times a week
>>
>>35657535
>having a life outside of the gym
Cuck

whats wrong DYEL? Too much of a pussy to have a leg day for each leg?

It depends on the experiences you have. I had some ink done by monks in Thailand and India. They have alot of meaning to me.
